{section}Parent Information{/section} Safety and Security To protect your child, we adhere to strict safety guidelines. A Safety Team is present during all services, and all regular North Way Kids volunteers have an application and background check on file. Upon check-in to your child’s assigned classroom, your child will receive a name tag with a unique identification number, and you will receive a Parent Receipt with your child’s name and that same identification number. Your child will be unable to check out of North Way Kids until your matching Parent Receipt is presented. Special Instructions To ensure the best care for your child, it is your responsibility to inform your child’s leader of any allergies, health concerns, or special needs. Diaper Changing and Bathroom Policies For the safety of your child and our volunteers, you will be called from the service to change your child’s diaper. Additionally, volunteers are never permitted in a bathroom alone with children. They will assist them with clothing (as needed) from outside the door. Wellness Policy For the health of all our children and volunteers, please keep your child with you if they exhibit any of the following:
  • Fever in the last 24 hours
  • Vomiting in the last 24 hours
  • Diarrhea in the last 24 hours
  • Cloudy or green runny nose
  • Pink eye or other eye infections
  • Persistent cough
  • Any unexplained rash
  • Any communicable disease
  • Any symptoms of common childhood diseases, such as chicken pox, strep throat, etc.

{vimeo}214108413{/vimeo} {section}Kids{/section} In North Way Kids, we create environments and opportunities for kids to discover who Jesus is and learn to apply Biblical truth to their lives, while partnering with parents in this journey. Early Childhood (Birth – Preschool): Our Early Childhood environments offer our youngest kids a clean, safe and loving place to sing, play and learn about God. We want kids to know that:
  • God made me.
  • God loves me.
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
Elementary (Kindergarten – 5th Grade): In our Elementary environments, kids have a chance to discover who Jesus is. They’ll connect with adult and student leaders, sing together, hear the Bible come to life through creative and exciting storytelling, engage in meaningful small group activities and discussion, and receive tools that families can use to continue growing in their faith all week long. We want kids to know that:
  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
North Way Kids takes place every weekend during the adult service. Our goal is to partner with your family as we hear, pray, talk and live out our faith together. {linkbox}Kids Links|/first-time-guests|First Time Guests|/parent-information|Parent Information|/parent-resources|Parent Resources|/kids-volunteer|Volunteer|/child-dedications|Child Dedications|/clearances|Clearances{/linkbox}
