UKB International protects Fernhurst Court Nursery children from harm free RSS news feed from the Biometric News Portal

10 November 2008
Founded in 2004, Fernhurst Court Nursery is based in a listed building. The nursery is registered to care for up to eighty children aged between thee months and five years. Fernhurst Court Nursery in Blackburn has installed a Fingerprint Entry biometric access system to protect children and nursery staff. Owners specified the biometric locks to raise security while making access easier for carers and parents.

The new system, supplied by the Manchester office of UKB International Ltd allows nursery personnel to register parent’s fingerprints in seconds. Parents then simply press their fingerprint on a sensor pad at the door to gain fast, easy access. They can leave or collect their children without fuss while un-registered visitors must ring a bell and wait for a member of staff. The new biometric system means a member of staff no longer needs to monitor every parent entering the building.

The biometric scanner identifies key points on the users fingerprint. No actual fingerprint is stored since the scan is converted into data which is then encrypted and retained for future comparison. The encrypted data is only held by the nursery making it fully data compliant.

Fernhurst Court Nursery Manager Amanda Newsham says: “Our new biometric access system means greater security for children and staff, which is a paramount concern to us. Fingerprint entry means only registered parents and staff can access the nursery and they can do so easily without having to wait for a staff member to answer the door. With our previous key code security system people could forget the code, and we were concerned the code could fall into the wrong hands. Now we can be certain that only people registered on our biometric system can gain entry to the nursery”

Fernhurst Court Nursery recently attained a ‘Good’ OFSTED report in all areas of their childcare and education. Another OFSTED report praised the biometric entry system as ‘Protecting children from harm’.

UKB International Ltd Director Chris Williams says: “Security is a paramount concern at Fernhurst Court Nursery and the owners have specified the only key which cannot be lost, stolen, forged or hacked – the human fingerprint.”
