Early Learning Center – Safety

Staff

Each member of our staff has experience working with children. Every worker has a valid Child Abuse History Clearance and Criminal Record Check. Members of our staff hired after September 2008 also have complied with Federal Fingerprint clearances. Every year we review fire safety together. We practice fire drills in the center. Staff members are properly trained in First Aid, CPR, Infant CPR, and use of the defibrillator located in the hallway of the church. Your child’s safety is paramount to all decisions made, daily and hourly. Staff members meet monthly to continually improve the quality of our environment and of our care for each individual child.

Emergency Plan

Our emergency plan is located in the hallway at the top of the steps. Upon enrollment, parents are given a letter explaining the emergency procedure. We would send additional information if there were any updates to the present plan. Our staff receives yearly training in the emergency plan.

Environment

It is our job to ensure your child remains in a safe environment. While in our care, your child will not be exposed to broken toys or objects that could harm them. The GPC Early Learning Center remains responsible for ensuring that no objects in our building are on a Consumer Product Safety recall list. We urge all parents to do the same.

Parents can easily sign up to be notified of recalled children’s items. You may limit your notification to children’s items and receive about one email a day that will help you keep the children we care for safe in their homes.
