Proposal Name: Supervision of Children
Document Date: February 2012
Proposal Number: 15
Contact Name: Member

Wolf Willow welcomes and expects child visitors. Since we are a senior community our common areas are not childproofed. We are concerned about the safety of young children while visiting our home. In addition we are concerned about the safety and comfort of Wolf Willow members, especially as we age. Wolf Willow members with children visiting will keep in mind the safety of the children and the safety and enjoyment of common space by Wolf Willow members.

Wolf Willow members with children visiting are responsible to ensure that their caregivers are aware that Wolf Willow is not a childproofed building, and that we ask all visitors to be thoughtful of the comforts and needs of others.

Children should be supervised by a responsible person while in Wolf Willow common areas. Supervision should be appropriate to a child’s age and abilities.

Notice:
That we include in the guest welcome letter:

  • A statement that Wolf Willow common areas are not childproofed.
  • That children should be supervised while in Wolf Willow common areas.

That we post sign in appropriate places stating that for their safety children should be supervised while in Wolf Willow common space. (The signs can be written in a welcoming fashion, while making it clear that the building is not childproof.)

Decision date: March 3, 2012
