Kid's Little (3 Years to Kindergarten)

The safety and security of your children are extremely important to us. Our check-in and pick-up process is easy yet very effective. Our goal is for you to enjoy the service, knowing your kids are secure, while having a great time and learning about Jesus.

After dropping your child off, relax and enjoy the service! Our teams serve to ensure your children are well taken care of, and have a great experience while in our care. However, if you are needed, we will display your 3-digit code on the monitors in service to alert you. Please be attentive to the screens throughout the service; and if your number is displayed, head to the Kids Link area to speak with a leader.
Check-In
From your child’s first visit, we will collect some basic information to get to know your child, and enter them into our system. From then on, each time you check-in, both you and your child will receive a security sticker with a matching 3-digit code, valid only for that day. We ask that both you and your child wear this sticker visibly on clothing, until you leave. When dropping your child off, you will have the opportunity to share any information with one of our leaders that will help in caring for your child; such as feeding, sleeping times, and/or allergies.

If you will be visiting with us soon, meet us at our New Family Check In Counter to get your family checked-in to our system and ready for Kids Link!
What to Bring
Our serving teams are here to ensure your little ones are well taken care of. Part of making their experience enjoyable is making sure we have everything we need to keep them happy, comforted, and fresh. When packing your child’s diaper bag/backpack, we ask that you please include the following items:

6 Weeks to 2 Years

■ Two or three disposable diapers.
■ A pacifier or other similar comforting item, should your child need it for additional security.
■ A complete change of clothes…just in case.
■ A bottle of milk, formula, juice, or water.
■ If mothers are nursing please either supply us with pumped milk or please plan to come back and feed their infant.

2 Years – 5 Years

■ Snacks: We provide light snacks that typically consist of “Cheerios” or “Goldfish”, and water. We also serve Chex cereal in addition to cheerios for children who have allergies to gluten. If you prefer your child not have this, please let one of our leaders know when you check-in.
■ Back-ups: We know that children at this age can, and still do have accidents every now and then. Just in case, we ask that you pack a small bag with a spare change of clothes, and diapers or disposable training pants, as applicable.
*Due to allergies we ask that no parents bring additional food into the preschool area from 2-and up (infants to 1 year are the exception to that rule).
Pick-Up
Pick-up is a breeze. First, you will be asked to show your security sticker prior to entering the secure Kids Link area. (Wearing your sticker visibly helps keep this process moving quickly.) A leader will then match the number on your child’s sticker to the number on your sticker, prior to releasing them.
***If you happen to misplace your security sticker during service, proper identification will be required for release in order to match you and your child in our system.

That’s it! Getting your little ones to Kids Link on Sundays is simple, and efficient. We hope to see you and your children this Sunday for worship.
What to Expect
As you escort your child to their classroom, a Kids Link Team Member will meet you at the door to welcome your child and receive any other necessary items you may have. Preschoolers are encouraged to participate in opening activities such as working on a puzzle or reading a book. The teacher will use the opening activity to introduce the main point of the Bible lesson.

Each classroom engages in worship and prayer to help the preschoolers prepare for the Bible lesson. Prayer is always a part of our group time. Hillsong Kids is a curriculum we use to teach your preschooler Biblical Truths in a clear and meaningful way. They will learn basic Biblical Truths that can be applied in their preschool realm, all while having fun! Bible verses, songs, games, and crafts are also used to emphasize the theme and focus of the lesson.

A snack will be provided for your preschooler consisting of Goldfish, wafers and water. Please inform check-in personnel of any allergies during the check-in process. Allergy alerts will be entered into the check-in system and displayed on your child’s name tag.

Each child will receive an activity page that includes the week’s Bible story, Bible verse, and a related activity. You can read the story and the Bible verse with your child to help them understand the lesson and the verse. This interaction with your child can be very rewarding for the both of you.
Mama's Room
As thrilling as service may be, we know sometimes kids get a little wiggly. We have a room designed just for Mama’s and those wiggly kids. Our Mama’s Room is located inside Kids Link Little, equipped with a changing station, seating, and privacy for nursing moms. We also stream the audio of the service so that you won’t miss a beat of service! Please ask any of our team members for assistance.
