Additionally, a weekly check-in sheet is available in each room for parents to notify teachers of specific feeding and changing needs. Please review the Healthy Child Policy in the FAQs below.

Kids Preschool IconPreschool

(Ages 2 – 4)

Available Sundays at 8, 9:30 & 11 AM

Your preschool child will learn the truths of God’s Word through lessons designed for their specific ages. During this time they will also engage in play time, snacks, outdoor time (weather permitting), crafts, and music. Preschool is a great age to begin to develop a love for Jesus. We are honored to partner with you in discipling your little one! Children are welcome to stay for two of the three worship hours.

Kids ElementaryElementary

(Kindergarten – 5th Grade)

Available Sundays at 9:30 & 11 AM

Elementary years are the most opportune time for kids to be awed by the God of the universe, to establish a foundational relationship with Jesus, and to begin their own personal walk of faith. Each child should be checked in at one of the kiosks in the Kids Lobby and then escorted by a parent to their classroom. Parents must pick up their child at the end of the hour.

FAQs

What is the check in and pick up process?

We use our computer system to provide security and convenience for our families. This check-in system speeds up check-in procedures any time your child attends a kid’s event and provides added security while your child is at church. Once you’ve created your account, checking in will be easy. Once you check in, a name tag and a corresponding claim check will print out for each child. Your kid’s name, room assignment, and any information the teachers need to know (allergies, etc.) prints on their name tag.

Check-in stations are located in the Kids Lobby and in the nursery hall. If it’s your first time at Providence, come in the Main Entrance, stop by the Welcome Desk and a volunteer will escort you to a check-in station.

No child is allowed to leave the classroom without a parent and a matching security tag.

What safety measures are in place?

Your child’s safety is our priority and we are committed to a system that creates a safe environment. Teachers and staff that interact with your child have been through an orientation, training, and completed a background check. All teachers wear name tags so that they are easily identified. Our electronic check-in system provides an additional layer of security for your child. Security personnel are located throughout the kids hallways.

What is the healthy child policy?

We want to provide a healthy environment in our classrooms, so we ask you to keep your child at home when any of the following have occurred within the last 24 hours.

  • Fever/Vomiting
  • Drainage from the eye(s)
  • Green or yellow runny nose
  • Frequent cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Questionable rash
  • Sore throat

If your child becomes ill while in the classroom, you will be notified promptly. If your child is being treated with an antibiotic, he or she should have received treatment for at least 24 hours before coming to the classroom.

Are kids with special needs welcome?

We want you to know that your child is welcome and loved. We’ll work with you to provide the level of assistance needed for your child so that they can learn about Jesus in a loving and safe environment while you attend worship service or Life Group. So that we can serve you better, contact Cindy at [email protected] and let her know you’d like to visit so she can answer any questions and make sure we have a volunteer to support your child if necessary for your first Sunday.
