Parents keep an eye on kids via Web

School installs Webcam in infant school

Bolton Nursery School in Greater Manchester has scored a nation-wide first, with a live Webcast from the children's playrooms via the school's new site. The site has been made as secure as possible - for rather obvious reasons - and parents need to enter usernames and passwords to access the video sections of the site. Nursery manager, Julie Fletcher, commented: "We previewed the site in March, and discussed the whole idea with the parents. We agreed to have a four month trial period with one camera." At present the site has only one live camera, which will film each area of the nursery for a month before moving on. The site has proved so popular with parents in the last two days that the school is thinking about extending the project. ®
