Leaders do not need answers. Leaders must have the right questions.Security for children’s areas in the church is receiving increasing attention. Greg Atkinson visits many churches to help them see things as an outsider that the churches may be overlooking. Some of the questions he asks as he reviews children’s space include these related to safety.
How easy is it to get to the nursery, classrooms, or child bathrooms? Is there a proper ratio of children’s workers to children? Do the children get escorted out of the classroom and to the bathroom? Is there a back exit or entrance where children can go outside? Is it secure?
