FAQs

Q: How are the children split into their groups?
A: They are assigned to small groups (8-10 kids) by grade for preschool (K1-K3) and by grade and gender for elementary (Grade 1-5).

Q: What do they do during the Kids Club service?
A: Each week consists of small group and large group time where children gather to worship, hear about God through bible stories and learn how it all applies to everyday life through fun activities, games and crafts. Each month revolves around a different theme.

Q: What are the bathroom procedures?
A: For our nursery kids, we have paid staff to assist with changing of diapers. For our preschoolers, there is always a minimum of 3 at a time with adult supervision. Elementary children are allowed to go on their own in pairs.

Q: When can my child move up to the next grade?
A: At the beginning of each new school year in September. There is a graduation ceremony at the end of preschool (K3) and elementary (Grade 5).

Q: Can a sibling or friend from a different grade be in the same class?
A: The older child can join the younger’s class in a temporary arrangement. We encourage our children to be with their peers to best experience the age appropriate curriculum.

A: For safety reasons, we clear the floor 15 minutes after service has begun. We encourage our parents to go to the adult’s service.

Q: Can my child go to different services from week to week?
