Safety and Security

The safety and security of your child is our highest priority! We have taken bold steps to protect them and prevent harm from coming to them.

Background Check Application

All volunteers who work with children, youth or vulnerable adults (as well as staff and others who may come in contact with them) are required to submit this Background Check Application.  If you would like to learn more about the Background Check service we use, click HERE.

Safety and Security Online Training

 At the strong recommendation of our insurance provider and because we are in agreement with them that training is essential to protect those all who participate, we are asking all new, returning and current volunteers (i.e. everyone) to take the updated Safety and Security Online Training course.  

  • 2021 VOLUNTEERS:  Anyone who is committing to work with children, youth, and vulnerable adults at Friends Church must take this online training.

Check-in / Check-out Procedure

We ask guests to stop at our Children’s Welcome Desk to get signed in and receive their security stickers. Children should be dropped off and picked up at their classroom by an adult with the corresponding security tag. 

Medical and Allergy Needs

All important allergy, medical, and security information is communicated to the teachers weekly through the child’s name tag and our Check In system.

Instant Communication

Parents of babies and preschoolers are given a vibrating pager so they may be reached at a moment’s notice throughout the building if or when needed.

Media Release Opt-Out form

Parents or guardians who do not wish their child’s photo or video to be potentially posted online or otherwise displayed should complete this Media Release Opt-Out Form. We will make every effort to exclude the indicated minor from any individual or small group photography as per our GR: 117 Photography Policy.
