Child Abuse & Neglect Reporting Responsibilities

In the event that staff members suspect child abuse or neglect of any enrolled children, staff members are required to report this to the director. The director or staff member will, in turn, report the findings to Child Protective Services.

If an intoxicated or impaired person insists on removing children from the center, the center shall immediately report the incident to the local police agency.

Staff Members Trained in Award-Winning Stewards of Children® Program for Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

We have achieved “Partner in Prevention” status again this year, a designation awarded by the nonprofit Darkness to Light to organizations which take extra steps to protect the children they serve by training staff to understand the issue of child sexual abuse, identify unsafe situations and practices, and react responsibly in the best interest of the children they serve.

One in 10 children will be sexually abused before the age of 18. We earned the “Partner in Prevention” designation by providing Stewards of Children training to over 90% of its management, staff, and volunteers. This evidence-informed program is scientifically proven to help participants prevent and respond to child sexual abuse. “Partner in Prevention” was created as a national standard to help parents and caregivers recognize organizations that take child protection seriously by implementing policy and training staff to prevent child sexual abuse.

Darkness to Light is an international organization that leads the movement to end child sexual abuse by educating and empowering adults in education, youth serving organizations, and communities to protect children. Darkness to Light has affiliates in all 50 states and 16 international locations.
