Safey and Security

Secured Check-In

At Crossroads, we have a secure check-in process. First-time guests check-in at the Preschool Welcome Desk. We have amazing volunteers who will assist you. Once your child is in our system, you will be able to check-in at one of the kiosk located in the Preschool commons. We always have volunteers available to assist you.

How to Check-In

Enter the last four digits of your home phone number (or cell phone if that is your main contact number) to pull up your children’s information. Click on the class/service they will be attending that morning and make sure to "print all" when you are given the printing option. The label you receive for your child will have their name, the class they are assigned to, along with the parent/guardian name. There is also a random number generated weekly on the child’s label that corresponds with the random number on the parent’s label. If you are unable to locate your parent label when you come to pick-up your child, please see the Volunteer Coordinator. You will be asked to provide some identification before your child is released to you. Thank you for understanding and for helping us to make Crossroads the safest place for your children!

Magnetic Lock Doors

While we have children inside the preschool area, we have the ability to lock our doors for extra security purposes. Our Preschool Coordinators and Welcome Desk Assistants have scan card access to the doors, and we are happy to allow you in at any time. We lock the doors at the beginning of our Large Group Time and un-lock them prior to the end of each service.

Hand Washing

We realize that the #1 way to prevent the spreading of germs amongst children is effective hand washing. We do our very best to ensure that your child and other children are not passing germs. Please help us with this effort by washing their hands before they arrive. When spending time with us, we have them wash their hands before snack, after playing on the playground and after using the restroom. We do our best to wash our hands frequently, after tending to a child’s nose, before we hand out snack, after taking the children to the restroom and after we use the restroom.

Cleanliness

When changing diapers, our staff uses a new pair of gloves for each diaper change and we spray the changing pad with a safe disinfectant spray after each change. All surfaces in a classroom are sprayed with a safe disinfectant that kills germs but is safe on toys, after each time children have been in a classroom. All of our sheets and blankets are laundered after every use. If a crib is used multiple times, new sheets and blankets are used for every new child. Please be especially aware of signs of illness before coming to the nursery. Do not send children with symptoms of contagion to the nursery. These symptoms include green nasal discharge, fever, vomiting, and diarrhea. Children must be fever free for twenty-four hours before returning to the nursery. If a child has a runny nose due to allergies, a doctor’s note stating the child is not contagious is extremely helpful for us and other concerned parents.

Special Needs

Crossroads is a loving, safe and caring place for all children. We will take the best possible care of your child and will make every effort to accommodate any child with special needs. Please let us know of any special needs your child may have by visiting with us at the Welcome Desk, or feel free to contact our preschool staff at 936-271-7500.
