Slava Volman Responds to Use of Biometrics for Security in Childcare Facilities

NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent ABC News report highlights the use of biometrics—or fingerprint identification systems—to help ensure greater security in large childcare facilities. While the use of such security measures may be used to stave off unwanted visitors and protect children from exiting the facility, the technology can also help businesses keep track of those who come in and out of the building. Slava Volman, owner and founder of Shooting Stars Daycare, encourages the use of any technology that can help parents rest assured while they leave their children in attendance of others.

Throughout his two decades of experience, Slava Volman has never encountered any security issues with children, parents or visitors, but he notes that this task can be much more difficult for larger facilities. Slava Volman comments, "The Shooting Stars Daycare staff has pretty great relationships with all the families who use our services—we know them and they know us, and that is how we have built our trust. That's our security system. While we do not use biometrics, I fully support implementing the technology if it is necessary. The facility referred to by ABC oversees children from approximately 1,000 families; it is a high volume that shows just how important it is to keep track of everyone who enters and exits the facility."

According to the article, both Youth Enrichment Services and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, have used biometrics for over two years to enhance security. It notes how detailed the software can be to help monitor the visitor activity at the facilities, "When staff or parents enter any one of their four Sioux Falls buildings, they scan their finger which is cross-referenced with other security features to make sure they're allowed in." While Slava Volman is disheartened that such a need for security exists, he does observe that the technology helps correct those problems. He notes that such security measures may be useful in public schools as well.

Slava Volman's facility serves nearly 30 children, which makes it easier for him and his staff to keep tabs on those entering the facilities. However, Shooting Stars Daycare does only allow permitted visitors to enter the facility to pick up children. For added protection, Slava Volman recommends that every daycare facility at least use security cameras to help resolve any situations that may arise.


Slava Volman runs the Shooting Stars Daycare facility, which offers a highly structured curriculum to approximately 30 boys and girls per day. The program includes field trips and hands-on activities that encourage children to learn and have fun. Prior to Slava's daycare experience, he worked as a kindergarten teacher and afterschool childcare program supervisor. He is also the father of adult children.
