Guidelines & Expectations
NEST offers an environment where all children and staff feel safe and respected. Parents/guardians will be notified if a child is disruptive or engages in dangerous or inappropriate behaviors. Examples of these behaviors include: using inappropriate or disrespectful language, bullying students or staff, stealing, or having a continuous problem with being late or absent. Such behaviors will be discussed with both the student and the parent/guardian. If these behaviors persist, this will result in a suspension and/or removal from the program with no exceptions. NEST views the safety and respect of our staff and students as a top priority. Please be sure to discuss this policy with your child so everyone involved is aware of what is expected while participating in the program.
If you as a parent/guardian feel as though your child has been mistreated by a volunteer or staff member, please be sure to contact Teresa Stecker, Executive Director, via phone (319) 330-9883 or email at . If you feel as though you have been mistreated by the Director please contact the IC Compassion Board President, Jeff Morgan via phone at 319-xxx-xxxx or email
