GIVE THIS TO EVERY WORKER
Due to the fact that we teach in one large group we prefer children younger than a 4 year old be with a adult relative at all times. Many times younger children become distracted or are distracting to the older children.
ADULT HELP IS NEEDED in premeeting
We need a mature group of volunteers to help with discipline (See above). One adult for every ten children is the minimum needed. Some of these should arrive early (30 minutes or more) to greet and register the children.
They then gather them someplace other than the sanctuary (if possible) until it is time to begin. They should also be prepared to entertain the children with an organized activity.
It is important to encourage the use of the washroom, and to discuss sanctuary dos and don’ts (no gum, no hats, no child holding another on their lap, sing, pay attention, etc.) during this period.
ADULT WASHROOM HELP
A couple of mature adults preferably females to escort children to the washroom. The adult should escort the child to the washroom and prop the door open and wait and return with the child. If a group of children want to go tell them only one at a time will be permitted.
