CHILDREN'S EQUIPPING CENTER
“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” —Matthew 19:14

Can my children bring snack or lunch?

What about the volunteers?
Volunteers must pass a Background Check. BACKGROUND CHECKS: $30
Staff will NEVER be alone with your child. As two people are assigned to each group.
Camera's are strategically placed around the church to monitor events.
There are windows on all doors so that parents can come at anytime and look at children.
No one but staff and parents are allowed near children.
What about the bathroom?
Parents - are asked to take their children to the bathroom before coming to the room.
Staff - should a child have to go to the bathroom during the child’s time in the room then they will:
First find the parent and ask them to take the child.
Second, if no parent can be located, the staff will escort the child to the bathroom (and help if necessary). (***unless otherwise instructed by the parent not to).
When can a child not attend?
Sick - When a child is sick (have had a cold/fever/vomiting/cough, or a sibling/parent in house has, in the past 24 hours.)
Conflict - When they are not able to get along with others (This will be left up to the discretion of the Child Care Department Head. TPR will be as reasonable as possible, and has the goal of wanting to help the mother get into the prayer room. We will do everything we can to make this work, but understand that some children will be beyond the normal skill set of a volunteer child care worker. Therefore we will take these measures if a child is not able to get along with the care worker or other children in the room:
They will warn the child.
Share concerns with parents at pick up time.
Then monitor the child the next time.
After 3 times if the child is not able to cooperate we will ask the parent to take a 2 week break from the Children's Equipping Center.
