Photographs and Videotaping

Special events at the Center are often photographed by the Plymouth State University Office of Public Relations.  Parents are asked to sign a blanket permission form for their child to be photographed.  Children whose parents do not give permission will not be photographed.

Parents who wish to come in and take photographs or videotape in their child’s classroom are requested to talk with the teacher first.  All parents sign a permission slip either allowing or refusing permission for their children) to be included in photographs or video taken by parents of other children in the classroom.  Children whose parents do not give permission will not be photographed and/or videotaped.

The Center for Young Children and Families is part of an early childhood teacher education department and is considered a laboratory school for students.  The use of video technology and photographs is part of the early childhood teacher-training curriculum.  Children will sometimes be videotaped or photographed during play and will have opportunities to view themselves.  The videos and photos will only be shown within the Center or in early childhood classes.  These videotapes will remain at the Center.  Photographs may be used in documentation panels, which remain at the Center and then are later destroyed, and in early childhood student portfolios, without the use of children’s real names.
