Window Safety Tips for Toddlers and Young Children
by Simonton Windows
Do you have a home where young children reside? If so, check out these window safety tips from the experts at Simonton Windows:
Windows and young children are not a good combination. Make sure to keep furniture (especially cribs), or anything children can climb, away from windows.
Children should never be left unsupervised around open windows.
Play areas in a child’s room should be focused either in the center of the room or against a solid wall, rather than near windows.
For ventilation in rooms with toddlers and young children, open the top sash of Double Hung windows so that children cannot reach them while keeping the bottom sash (closest to the floor) closed.
