1st - 5th graders must be checked in by a parent/guardian at the kiosk in the Children’s Auditorium. They will remain in the auditorium until you pick them up in their small group. Many children are disappointed if they don’t get a printed nametag. Please fill out a visitor card and return it to the kiosk and their name will be added. Please note - if a child’s name isn’t in our computer system, it’s most likely that we didn’t receive all the needed information. Once they are in the system, you will receive a printed “receipt” to pick up your child after class. Please give it, along with their nametag, to your child’s small group leader.
Your baby will learn that church is a warm, loving place where others really care for them. They will be played with, sung to, prayed over and nurtured.
Please bring the following items for your child:
Disposable diapers and wipes
A change of clothes
Check in for babies is at the nursery. You will be asked to sign your baby in and out. For the safety of your baby, the person who signs your baby out must be the same person who dropped them off and signed them in. To ensure your child’s comfort while in our care, vibrating pagers are available for you to take with you, and will be used if your baby cannot be consoled or in case of an emergency.
Children 16 months - Kindergarten are checked in at the main entrance to the Children’s Auditorium. You will be asked to sign your child in and then write your child’s name and any food/environmental allergies on a wristband. One end of the wristband has a number that corresponds with the number at the other end, and tears off for you to keep as your claim ticket. The child must wear the wristband at all times when in our care. You will be directed to your child’s classroom. This is where you will pick them up, and sign them out. A parent or guardian must sign each child in and out.
Toddlers learn that Jesus loves them and that church is a happy place where we make new friends and enjoy new experiences. Limited activities from the In the Beginning curriculum are introduced and most days they will have something to take home to remind them of what they learned.3’s - k’s
Children will be taught from the In the Beginning: Growing into a Life of Faith curriculum. This curriculum was developed by early childhood practitioners and experienced by thousands of children in the Promiseland ministry at Willow Creek Community Church.
Through creative response-oriented teaching, singing, visuals, motions, and more, your child will be actively engaged each week while developing the spiritual foundation preschoolers need in order to enter into a relationship with Jesus.
