Polices of Christian Heritage
Christian Heritage is founded on the premise that the only complete education is Christian education. This premise is based on the fact that only Christian education deals with all the dimensions of life from a biblical perspective. It is our goal to provide those things that will promote the development of each student's soul, mind, and body in order that they might become productive, responsible citizens to God, country, and society.
Christian Heritage is an integral and inseparable part of the ministries of the University Boulevard Church of the Nazarene. The policies of the school are determined by the controlling authority of the local congregation. Parents are expected to cooperate fully with the school policies as set forth in the official school handbook.
If a child abuse is alleged to have occurred at Christian Heritage, it is every staff member's responsibility to report it to the Administration, Preschool Director, or Extended Care Director. Additional procedures are outlined in the Christian Heritage Policy manual and staff manuals. An administrator will file the report with the ABUSE Hotline.
Employees of Christian Heritage participate in Ethics in Education training annually. This training includes requirements of the State of Florida in regards to child abuse and neglect.
