We are currently touring preschools for my 3 yr old. So far we have looked at 6 places and settled on 2 that stood out for us. We are leaning more to the Montessori preschool because we just love the method of learning. The only problem is they were the only school we toured that didnt have a "security" buzzer or keycode to come into the facility. You just open the gate, open the front door and walk in and sign your kid in. When I asked about this, the director said, they know all the kids and all the parents by name and they are right with your kids when you pick them up so they wouldnt hand over your kid to a stranger. But I still find it really odd. A crazy armed person could just walk in and open fire. I'm just saying. The other schools had a front-desk person, a buzzing system, a sign in/out sheet & a keycode to access the kids room. Its a really great place but this bothers me a lot. How is it like in your kid's schools?Answer Question

The schools my girls went to for preschool were in the field houses at our parks. One was just a 1 room building that was locked during classes. The other was a classroom inside a big building that had people coming and going all the time because it had a gym, weight room, raquetball courts, etc in it. The local public school also used it for gym classes.
The doors to the building are always open since it's a public building open to residents. I assume the teacher locked the classroom door while classes were in session but I never tested that theory. I never felt my kids were unsafe in either building.
