  • CCLC strives to offer the best child care and preschool program for our families. The safety of our children is our top priority. When I first learned of Secured Education Consultants, I new that it was an agency that I wanted to research further to learn more about the services that they offer. Our partnership with SEC helps to ensure that the children in our program are in the safest environment under the care of professionally trained early childhood educators. Our extra security measures provide comfort to our parents by knowing that their children are safe while in our care.

    — Kristy Pomper - Creative Child Learning Centers —
  • SEC have completed their assessments and trainings at our schools and we give them an A+  We laughed, we cried, and when it was all over we all felt that our lives had been changed for the better in a huge way.  We do a LOT of trainings but never has one been better received by staff, despite the fact that they were on beautiful Saturday mornings and afternoons.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    — Gerry Pastor - Owner, Educational Playcare —

  • Milestones was extremely happy with the level of professionalism and expertise of Secure Education Consultants. The plan that we have in place is more comprehensive and detailed that we could have imagined and the staff thoroughly enjoyed the training. Our families feel safer leaving their children in our care knowing that in an emergency we know what to do. As an owner I feel good offering my customers and staff a plan and training that truly makes us safer and more prepared.

    — Kelly - Owner, Milestones Child Development Centers —
  • As coordinator of a safety team that has been in place for close to 10 years, I would highly recommend SEC training to any team desiring to “up their game”.  They deliver a training package that will enhance your awareness, and teach you, through exercises, the proper response to a host of scenarios.  If you are looking to train personnel, why not use a company with high credentials, field experience, and a passion for sharing?

  • Milestones Child Development Centers’ #1 priority is the safety & security of the children in our care. Without it, fulfilling our mission and reaching our goals of creating meaningful relationships with families and providing high quality early childhood education simply would not be possible.  By partnering with Secure Education Consultants, we have been able to greatly improve, expand, and enhance the level of safety & security within our classrooms and Center. The work of SEC throughout the entire implementation phase has been marked with the highest levels of professionalism, expertise, and knowledge.
