The best VBS leaders are learners, and the best learners enjoy sharing with others what they have learned through trial and error. Following are words of advice that have been collected through the years from great leader-learners just like you.
- Do not allow adults not working in VBS to roam the building.
- Check the playground each day for cleanliness and the safety of equipment.
- Once the VBS session has begun, do not allow parents to walk the campus unescorted to locate their children.
- Create a security team. Have team members wear t-shirts bearing “Security” in bold letters.
- Use crossing guards in parking lots and where kids must cross streets between buildings.
- Distribute written information outlying safety and security procedures to parents at registration.
