Safe Sanctuary Policy

At First UMC we practice the Safe Sanctuary approach to child safety. In short, Safe Sanctuaries means there is always a minimum of two adults with children, children are never left alone with one adult, and there is an awareness in making sure that both children and adults are protected.

 

Each Mothers’ Day Out and Latch Key Staff member is First Aid trained and CPR certified to ensure the safety of every child in our program. Additionally, all staff go through Safe Sanctuaries training to ensure that all participants and staff are protected.

Our goal with both Mothers’ Day Out and Latch Key is to provide a caring, Christian environment to help each child grow and to feel secure.
