Safety and Security

Safety is a core value of Creek Kids ministry. We work hard to ensure the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual safety of each child. Our written policies and routine practices are designed to strengthen security and to keep the children safe.

Background Checks

We have hundreds of the world’s best volunteers who are eager to teach your children. All Creek Kids volunteers and staff submit to regular criminal background checks. In addition, our staff and volunteers are routinely trained in our written abuse prevention policies and discipline policies to ensure your child’s safety.

Check In System

Our check-in system is an important element of our security plan. Each Creek Kid will receive a printed nametag and security code to wear while on campus. A responsible adult keeps the corresponding security tag with the matching code and must present the tag to the Creek Kids team at check out. When you arrive on campus, please find an assisted check-in area and one of our staff will be happy to register your children


Creek Kids staff, key volunteers and emergency personnel wear two-way communication devices at every church event so quick, open communication is always available. In addition, Security cameras and restricted access to classroom areas also help us protect children.

Safety Training

Awareness and education are key to a safe environment for children. Our written policies and routine practices are designed to strengthen security and to keep the children safe. At every Creek Kids training events, meetings, and regular email communications, the Creek Kids staff shares new, relevant information regarding best practices for keeping kids safe.
