Child Safety & Strangers

We take your child's safety very seriously.  
BASE staff actively does this in large and small ways everyday.


I would like to share with you the discussion we have before every field trip.

After attendance at 9am we have, what we call- Expectations.

One staff member delivers all the information to the kids (this is part of why we want the kids here by 9am)

Expectations go over: Bus rules, what our destination is, what they should expect once we get there, what rules are specific to the destination, restroom rules, and lastly stranger danger.

When discussing strangers we explain what a stranger is- It's simply someone you don't know.  Strangers include teenagers and adults.  It also includes children who are at the destinations we are traveling to.  We ask our children to play with other BASE children only.  This way we know who they are interacting with and can monitor accordingly.  We explain that adults do not need to ask children for directions.  All adults know that children are not supposed to talk to strangers, so if an adult talks to them -they are directed to walk away and alert a staff member, staff will help the adult with whatever they need. 

The Parker Police Dept. has given us valuable information
on how you, as a parent can speak to your child, what to speak about and
facts about child abduction.


If you have any suggestions or concerns please contact me directly.
