Protecting Your Child

How does Idlewild provide safety and security for my child when I’m attending the worship service or a Bible Fellowship class?

Through use of a computer check-in system, each child is given a name tag containing his room number and any special allergy alert. Parents receive two copies of a matching security tag containing the security number only. This security tag is used to pick up the child. No child is released without this security tag. Parents and guardians are asked to wear this tag whenever you are in our children’s building.

How are teachers and volunteers screened?

We require all volunteers to submit to a thorough background investigation screening. All volunteers are approved by our leadership prior to being trained to serve with children.

How will you reach me if my child needs me?

If you are in the Worship Center, your child’s security code will be displayed in the lower corner of the IMAG screen. For parents attending an adult Bible Fellowship class, your personal cell phone may be called.
