How do I check in my 1st or 2nd Grade Child?

SHELBY CHECK-IN

We have a computerized check-in system on Sunday mornings which will print a sticker for children in Grades 1 & 2 as well as a guardian pick up tag for parents or guardians.  Children will not be released without the Guardian ticket.

You will check your 1st or 2nd grade child at a Check-In Station.  At the time of check-in, a loving and trained volunteer leader will greet you.  You will be asked to provide us with a cell phone number that you have in your possession.  In the event that we need to contact you, we will send you a text message.  (Remember to leave your cell phone on vibrate/silence while attending class or worship.)

You and your child will receive a check-in tag specifically created for your child.  To ensure their security, an adult MUST be present for check-in and check-out and your child will not be released without presentation of your corresponding tag.

What is First Kids well-child policy?

We operate a well-child program.  For the protection of all the children in our ministry, we cannot accept a child with a runny nose, fresh cold (four days or less), fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea or any other signs of illness.  We request that you not place your child in the program while they are at risk of exposing other children.  Thank you in advance for helping us to keep our First Kids program a healthy place!

Who will teach my child?

Each of our volunteers has completed a First Kids Leader Orientation Class which includes age-level appropriate training, thorough review of our safety and security polices and a background check.  This detailed process ensures that we will provide your child with the best possible care in a safe and secure child-friendly environment.

What will my child do?

FUN Games allow children to challenge their friends to an exciting game of foosball, air hockey, etc.

INTERACTIVE Large Group experience a loving God through music and videos led by dynamic leaders.

LIVE IT Talks in Small Groups focus on how we live out our faith, a memory verse activity, a life app game, and prayer time.
