Mobile and wearable sensors are increasingly becoming an important part of our lives in securing everyday actions, monitoring and controlling our health and well-being. This paper presents an end-to-end safety service for parents and teachers in day-care centers and schools, including a prototype wearable vest with various sensors monitoring the environment and presence of children. Teachers and parents are able to receive alerts and notifications, e.g., when a child moves across certain restricted outdoor or indoor area, through gateways that have connectivity to server or cloud. All the information gathered by the vest is made available utilizing Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) services to guarantee a standardized way to manage the data coming from multiple sources. The vest is part of a larger framework to provide digital safety applications and services through various sensor devices.
