We take the safety of the children under our care seriously. Please read our Child Protection Policy (CPP) for helpful information for teachers, caregivers, and parents about the policies we have in place to promote a safe and healthy environment for our children to learn.
Aspects of Child Protection
Volunteer application & screening, delimited volunteer roles, accident report forms and a system for checking children in and out of classes are all part of protecting children in our care. These resources are part of our effort at developing a full, multifaceted approach:
RBC CPP Forms
- RBC Volunteer Application/ Background Check Form
- RBC Incident Report Form
- RBC Acceptance of Policy for Approved Volunteers Form
- RBC Child Abuse Reporting Form
