Why We Exist

Providence Kids exists to partner with parents as the church and home share the goal of making disciples of the next generation and growing kids up to love and worship Him.

Sunday Mornings

Each week hundreds of kids from babies through 5th grade, gather together in groups. Learn more about each of these age-specific groups and what to expect on a Sunday morning below.

Available at 9:30 & 11 AM

Providence Kids nursery is located on the A Wing of the first floor. Our nursery provides a safe space for parents to attend corporate worship or Life Groups. Your child will be cared for, prayed over, and loved by our volunteers. Kids are welcome to stay for two of the three worship hours. Please review the Healthy Child Policy in the FAQs below.

Kids Preschool IconPreschool

(Ages 2 – 4)

Available at 9:30 & 11 AM

Providence Kids preschool is located on the B Wing of the first floor. Our preschoolers study the big picture story of the Bible by looking at 52 of the key stories in the Bible’s grand narrative each year and how they each point us to Jesus. Our preschool classes also use our Providence Kids catechism to teach kids 25 foundational truths. Our preschoolers have activity stations, worship with singing and Bible Stories, time on the playground, snacks, and a craft during their time together. Kids can attend at both the 9:30 and 11 worship hours.

Kids ElementaryElementary

(Kindergarten – 5th Grade)

Available at 9:30 & 11 AM

Our Providence Kids elementary life groups are located on the first and second floor of the Kids Building. Our life groups provide age-appropriate teaching and community for kids Kindergarten – 5th grade while parents are serving in a ministry role or attending their adult life group. Our Kindergarten and 1st-grade kids study the grand story of redemption and our 2nd-4th graders study expositionally through the Bible from Genesis-Revelation over the course of four years. We encourage elementary-aged kids to be involved in the corporate worship service with their parents. Our groups are a supplement to that, not a replacement of it. Kids can attend one service hour at either 9:30 or 11:00 each week.

COVID-RELATED FAQS

Register your kid each week

Parents must register their kids (birth – 5th grade) each week they plan to attend. Registration opens on Monday mornings and closes Saturday night. The registration link will be posted on this page. Please note, space is limited so registration may fill up before Saturday night. Please consider registering earlier in the week.

Where do parents check-in?

Self check-in stations are available in the Cafe Lobby and the Kids Lobby. For elementary-aged kids, it is recommended that you enter through the Kids Lobby. The kids staff team will also be available to assist with check-in if you prefer.

Are kids required to wear a mask?

Masks are optional for staff, volunteers, and kids.

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 Cafe Lobby. 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.
