FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The following are common questions we hear in Grace Kids. If you have a question and find that it’s not addressed here or on our other Kids pages, or if you’d like to request additional information, we invite you to contact us or stop and talk to one of our Kids Welcoming Team Members on a Sunday.
What does Sunday morning look like in Grace Kids?
Through relationships with volunteers and age-appropriate programming, in Grace Kids children learn the way of Jesus. Kids of all ages engage in both small and large-group activities where they learn that their identity is in Christ, that they have belonging in the Church, and that they have a role to play in God’s mission.
We are currently using the Orange curriculum for all Grace Kids classes. If you would like to know more about the curriculum please feel free to browse the website at www.rethinkgroup.org

What are the times for Grace Kids?
Grace Kids 9am Hour—Nursery through 5th grade (individual age-group classrooms)
Grace Kids 10:30am Hour– Nursery through 5th grade (elementary ages 1st through 5th grade together in a group program setting).
Where do I drop –off and pick up my child?
All children must be checked in at one of the Check-In computer stations prior to being dropped off at their classroom. At the Check-In Station, you will receive a Drop-Off Tag for your child. They can then be taken to their classroom. Nursery and Toddler parents will also receive a pager after dropping off their child.
After enjoying the service please be sure to stop back by the a Check-In Station to print a Pick-Up Tag for your child. You can then go to your child’s classroom. Please be sure to return any pagers you have received for Nursery or Toddler children.
What is your policy regarding health and safety?
All families are required to use the Check-In Station to print a Drop Off Tag before going to their child’s classroom, as well as to print a Pick Up Tag before picking their child up after the service. Children cannot be left at a classroom or released from one without the appropriate tag. No children are allowed to check themselves in or out (this includes older siblings of children in the Grace Kids program). A parent needs to be the person using the Check-In Station and dropping off and picking up their child.
Nursery and Toddler parents will receive a pager which will signal them during the service if there is an issue regarding their child.
We also maintain a safe child to teacher ratio, and background screenings are required for all staff and volunteers. Find out more by checking out our policies and procedures.
What should I do if my child is sick?
Sick Child Policy - if your child is experiencing signs of a fever, cough, runny nose with yellow or green discharge, diarrhea, vomiting, rash or shows signs of illness he/she should be kept home for at least 24 hours after the symptoms subside. This policy helps to keep other children and our volunteers healthy.
Do I need to register my child and why?
If you are a visitor we ask that you fill out a Visitor form. Otherwise, when you chose to attend regularly we ask that you register your child online. This enables us to update you with any information regarding Grace Kids and special events throughout the year. We also use the information on these forms to update our class lists and check-in system for Sunday mornings.
