Security Program

Like yourself, to protect and provide safekeeping for your child is the utmost importance at Children First Learning Center Foundation. Subsequently, we have researched and implemented a state of the art program, welcomed and approved by the State of Indiana; its success requires both understanding and a disposition to participate.

Proximity Access

In order for a parent or guardian to gain entrance into our front foyer, where your child is dropped off or picked up, you will be required to have a Proximity Access Card. Simply put, a Proximity Access Card contains the code necessary to unlock only the main entrance to the building, a secure area where our administrator maintains further secure access throughout the building.

Extra Safety and Security Measures

A receptionist is on duty in the front lobby to monitor the arrival and departure of parents and visitors.

NOTE: CFLC will call 911 if you come to the center intoxicated or impaired!

For your child’s safety, we require that you accompany your child to and from his or her room at arrival and departure times. You must sign your child in and out every day he/she is in attendance at the center. Be sure to let a classroom teacher know when you are dropping off or picking up your child.

We cannot release your child to anyone not on your signed authorization (pick-up) card. The teaching staff have been instructed to request identification if they are unsure as to the identity of the person picking up your child. Please keep in mind that this procedure is in place, for your child’s protection and safety. If you will not be picking up your child, call and let us know who will be coming. In case of separation/divorce, the parent maintaining custody will be asked to submit in writing any documents authorizing custody and pick up arrangements.

Under no circumstances will your child be permitted to leave with anyone other than those people designated in writing on the proper authorization form. Anyone picking up a child may be asked for a photo ID so that individual should always have one available when picking up your child.

The child center and house is equipped with a fire alarm control system, fire extinguishers, and smoke detectors. Fire drills are conducted monthly.

CFLC uses One Call Now service in event of an emergency or school closing. This service calls our CFLC families with the necessary information. One Call Now service is also used to remind families of special CFLC events. There is a One Call Now charge added to each child’s account in August every year.
