Safety

Plan to Protect

Tenth Kids abide by the rules and regulations of Plan to Protect® for the safety of your children as well as our volunteers. Anyone in contact with children will be screened and checked before they work with children.

We are required to meet the following adult-to-child ratios:

  • Babies 6–12 months (1:3 ratio)
  • Toddlers 1-2 years old (1:4 ratio)
  • Preschool 3–5 years old (1:6 ratio)
  • School Age 6-10 years old (1:8 ratio)

Check-in and Check-out

We use a secure, fast, and easy system to check-in your children. When you register your child for the first time at Tenth Kids, you will need to provide your child’s name, age, allergy information, and an emergency contact. You will receive two stickers: one for your child and one for you. You must keep your sticker for pick-up. We will not release a child unless they can properly check-out. We provide assistance on Sundays to make registration as smooth as possible.

Paging

If your child needs you during the service, we will page you using the number provided on your sticker. The 3-digit number will appear at the front of the sanctuary. Please go to your child’s classroom immediately.

Washrooms

Please take your child to the washroom before signing them in. Our volunteers do not change diapers or assist in the washroom. If your child needs assistance or is under 5 years old, you will be paged from the service to take your child to the washroom.

Snack

We provide a small snack on Sunday mornings and do not serve any food containing nuts or dairy. If your child has an allergy, please make sure it is noted upon registration. If you have any questions about ingredients on any of the food item we provide, please contact any one of our staff members.

Emergencies

Your child’s safety is our priority. In the event of an emergency where we must evacuate the building, our leaders will follow the emergency plan specifically designed for each site.

These are the meeting sites for each location:
