Even at this age, we believe that children can begin to absorb basic foundational Bible stories and truths. We are excited to share the “First Look” curriculum with our two-year old group.
We encourage parents to read our monthly email newsletter which incorporates the weekly Bible stories and themes into activities to fit your current schedule including play time, car time, bath time, and bed time.
Frequently Asked Questions
What about the safety of my child?
We strive to provide a safe and welcoming place where your kids are excited to come every week and you feel comfortable dropping them off. Our staff and childcare workers are CPR and First Aid trained. In addition, our fantastic team of volunteers have undergone thorough background checks and training. Our child to staff ratio is 4:1.
Do I need to register my child?
Help us make Kidwell Park an enjoyable and secure experience for you and your child. Parents are asked to register at the welcome desk or online and are assigned a number which helps us locate parents during worship services.
What should I pack for my child?
It is helpful if you pack the following in a diaper bag on Sundays.
- One diaper
- Pacifiers or other comfort items
- Change of clothes
- A bottle/sippy cup of milk, formula, juice or water
We ask that you label all personal items prior to your arrival.
Can I check on my child?
You are welcome to check on your child, but do so discreetly, unseen by your child or other children, to avoid separation anxiety.
How do I say goodbye?
After your child is checked in, please say a quick good bye. As you know it is normal for a child to cry as their parent leaves. If your child continues to cry for more than 10 minutes and cannot be consoled by our staff and volunteers will page you.
When do I pick up my child?
After the worship service, please promptly pick up your child. Children enrolled in programs through kindergarten are required to be picked up by a parent or guardian.
What if my child has been sick?
All toys for the nursery are cleaned and sanitized thoroughly after use each week. Please help us keep our rooms healthy by observing our “Sick Children Policy” and keeping your child home if they exhibit any of the following:
Fever within the previous 24 hours, vomiting or diarrhea within the previous 24 hours, discharge in or around the eyes, green or yellow runny nose, sore throat, questionable rash, any symptoms of communicable disease, persistent cough, head lice.
If your child is being treated with an antibiotic, he or she should receive treatment at least a full 48 hours before coming to Kidwell Park. If you child becomes ill while in our care, you will be notified promptly.
