It is of utmost importance that all children and volunteers that work with children are kept safe while at Wadsworth United Methodist Church or church sponsored events.
Therefore, All volunteers will take child protection training, fill out an application to work with children/youth, have references checked and take ongoing trainings. First aid and CPR and choking training is also made available to all volunteers and is required for staff to have. First aid kits are located throughout the church and are taken on offsite outings. Emergency medical forms and permission slips must be signed by a parent or guardian for all offsite outings. We have a church wide Child Protection Policy to keep all children and volunteers safe.We have developed a church wide discipline plan that is followed by all leaders for the safety and for providing a positive environment for all children. All children, infant-4th grade must be signed in and out at all church events where a parent is not present in the room. Beepers are provided for parents who have children in the nursery to alert them immediately if needed.Policies are in place and practiced for severe weather, fire, lost child, and other emergency procedures.
