What time do I need to arrive?
Check in opens at 9:15 am for the 9:30 am services, 10:45 am for the 11:00 am service. We recommend getting there before the service begins so your child can get acclimated with his or her room and Small Group Leaders before their class goes to Large Group.
How do I register my child?
When you arrive, go to the guest service area in the Welcome Center. A team of helpful volunteers will greet you at the desk. You will fill out a guest registration form and they will enter you in our secure database system.
You may also fill out the form online prior to Sunday to save your family some time. Then proceed to the Kids Check-In desk on Sunday with your confirmation email to check-in your kids.
What about allergies or special needs?
Please notify us of ANY and ALL allergies, medical or behavioral special needs so we can best help your children. For your convenience, we provide Goldfish and Gluten-Free Fruit Snacks in classrooms of toddler ages and above. Allergies will be placed on your child’s printed name tag, but please also notify the Small Group Leader.
Children who have shown signs of fever, vomiting, or other contagious illnesses should be symptom-and fever-free for 24 hours before coming to their age appropriate environment.
How can I be sure my child is safe?
Your child will receive a name tag with a unique set of numbers and letters at the bottom that matches a corresponding parent tag. Your parent tag will allow you access to the KidMin hallway and is matched with your child’s name tag to ensure safety. All KidMin Volunteers are carefully trained and background checked before serving in your child’s classroom.
Who will be caring for my child?
Your child will be placed in an age appropriate Small Group with carefully trained and background checked Small Group Leaders. By attending the same hour each week your child will make friends and have the same Small Group Leaders and group of children in their room.
What do I need to bring?
If your child is in diapers or bottle feeding, please bring a bag with these items labeled with your child’s name. If your child will be bringing their own snack, make sure it is labeled and notify your child’s Small Group Leader of any allergies. Please keep all toys safe by leaving them at home.
What if you need to get in contact with me during the service?
The best way for us to get in touch with you is by text. You can have your phone on silent or vibrate during the service. If we can not get in touch with you via text message, then your parent number and ‘WL’ will be displayed on the screen in the auditorium.
What do you teach?
Everything we teach in KidMin Preschool are centered on 3 key truths; God made me, God loves me and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. In KidMin Elementary we teach according to 3 key truths: I need to make the WISE Choice, I can TRUST God no matter what, I should treat OTHERS the way I want to be treated.
What is Parent Cue?
The Parent Cue is a resource created to help you engage in conversations with your child during the week about what they are learning on Sunday mornings! Each month, it will include a summary of what they are learning and provide conversation starters for you to have while you’re driving, playing, and going through your everyday routine.
