Please know that your child’s safety is important to us! Every adult that serves in ministry to a child (ages eighteen and under) has undergone a background screening. Each classroom is equipped with a security camera, and our toys and equipment are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each session. We use KidScan, a security identification system, for check-in and check-out to assure that children are safe and are released to the proper adult. Pagers are available for parents to “check out” in case they need to be paged to return to their child. Please note that parents must remain on the Dawson campus while children are in our care.

If this is your child's first visit to Dawson, please visit the Arendall Welcome Center, where a greeter will help you get checked in. Parents will fill out a form, providing child's information, as well as parental contact information. They will then escort you to the proper classroom.

Parents of children in preschool through third grade will receive a security sticker that they must return in order to retrieve their child.
