Do you think the Butterfly Pre-school webcam is a good idea?
Published on 26/8/2004, Frome Standard Letter

"IT'S A GREAT idea because it reassures parents their children are safe, happy and well looked after."

"It should be compulsory in all nurseries around the country and I would love it if my children had that facility at their nursery."

"IT'S A REALLY good idea as long as there is a password and the site is very secure."

"I would be worried about hackers and potential paedophiles gaining access to the site."

"However, I would consider taking my child to a nursery if they had a camera as long as it was monitored and secure."

"I HAVE a friend whose little one attends the nursery and she regularly logs on to the net to check on her."

"I wouldn't enrol my child at a nursery just on the grounds they had a camera, but I would take it into consideration."

"I would be concerned about how secure the webcam was on the internet."

"IF IT is a secure camera and website and only the parents can log on I don't see a problem."

"We like to be really involved with our children, so any excuse to interact with them more is great."

"It would be really good for parents because they could check on their children from work and still feel involved."
