Chips on clothing to track babies in crèches

Childcare system in France is one of the most marvelled across the world. But then psychologists and unions in the country were quite resentful as they learned of an idea which according to them would convert the crèches into observation homes.

Next year onwards, a crèche in Paris, proposes to set up a novel system to keep an eye on movements of children by inserting tracking chips in their clothes. The crèche, which is supposed to be the first one in Europe to introduce such system, expects that the move would further enhance the safety of kids.

According to Patrick Givanovitch of Lyberta, a Toulouse-based technology company, this is a trial aimed at establishing the effectiveness of the system from the point of view of child safety.

As every child would be carrying a chip and this would at once make it possible to know if any child has moved out of the crèche, and if anything of the sort happens, crèche authorities and child's parents would immediately be informed regarding the same by way SMS on their cell phones.

Childcare industry experts in France have strongly opposed and condemned the proposal floated by the privately owned crèche, forewarning the move to be absurd and perhaps damaging.
