    Child First Always is a principle that honors and protects all children. This includes keeping them away from harm in all scenarios and is part of the ethical responsibility of the Lead.

    However, it is also the responsibility of the Lead to not make and present assumptions that are going to be critically damaging to the individual. Studying and commitment to antibias and antiracist principles is the most just-driven approach to ensure providers are knowledgable with complete information.

    I want to protect my students to the best of my ability, which this question really difficult to answer. If I suspected abuse or neglect, I would report it to the supervisor, for clarification on exactly what the policy is, and to make sure that they are on the same page about my concerns. Then I would report it to the state of my concerns.

    I choose to do it this way, because I have reported issues in my career, and it did not end well.
