Volunteers will not be alone with a child.
Volunteers will not help a child use the bathroom.
When on a field trip, any child who is not accompanied by his/her parent or family member, will be the responsibility of the preschool staff.
Maple Tree Preschool staff and volunteers are mandated reporters of suspected abuse and neglect.
Staff and volunteers will verbally report suspected abuse and neglect immediately. A written report is to be sent to DHS within 72 hours.
The staff member or volunteer who suspects the abuse and neglect must be the person who reports.
Volunteers will have a background check (ICHAT) and a public sex offender registry clearance (PSOR) conducted. Any individual registered on the public sex offender registry (PSOR) is prohibited from having contact with any child in care.
