The function of the chaperone shall include the care and control of the child with a view to securing his/her health, comfort, kind treatment and moral welfare. A chaperone shall not be in charge of more than THREE children at any time.

A chaperone should be with the child at all times whether: on set/stage area, dressing rooms, recreation, meals &  break areas etc.  The chaperone is the KEY PERSON to whom the child looks for protection, clarification and support while on set.  

You should instruct the chaperone prior to the day in what they can expect to be doing on set.

Once on set, please go over the following details:

- Who is responsible on set,

- Any health and safety issues that they should know about,
