Are you planning to place the web cam at a general viewing distance? It 
may not give you any details except unidentifiable tiny tots playing 
about. You will have to give zoom features so the parents can identify 
their kids. That means a remote controlled camera that can zoom in/out 
and move in 4 directions. I thank God, there was no such snooping around 
during my school days. ;)
