Planning Your Visit
BABIES - KINDERGARTEN
We can't wait to meet you and your littles! We hope the information below will give you a better idea of what to expect if you're visiting with your babies or toddlers (or both!)
Check In/Check Out Procedure
Parents of babies, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners check in at the front desk in building 400. If it’s your child’s first visit to FBC, please make sure to complete a Yellow Enrollment Form – this is the perfect place to let us know any information that will help us care for your little one such as feeding and sleeping routines, or if your child has any food allergies.
You and your child will receive matching tags. Be sure to keep it handy as you’ll be turning it in when you pick up your child.
We kindly ask that you pick up your children within 15 minutes after the end of the service or Adult Bible Groups. This courtesy allows our workers the same freedom you enjoy for fellowship and departure. Please make sure all items that you left with us have been returned to you before you leave the premises.
We ask that parents stick to a quick goodbye as they leave for service or Adult Bible Group. It is normal for little ones to cry when leaving a parent. This usually doesn’t last long and separation becomes easier as you develop regular attendance routines. Our volunteers will do their best to create interest in a toy or activity while giving your child assurance that you will return.
What to Bring for Babies & Toddlers
Wondering what to pack in your diaper bag? Here are a few things we recommend:
- Two to three disposable diapers (even if you use cloth diapers, it is a tremendous help to us if you have disposable diapers on hand for church)
- Pacifier or other items your child might need for security
- A bottle of milk, formula, juice or water
Our rooms are equipped with a wide variety of age-appropriate toys. We’d hate for your child’s toy to be misplaced or broken so we ask that you please keep personal toys at home.
Beginning in the Toddler classes, we will do our best to encourage your child to use the toilet as soon as you tell us you have begun that procedure. Until this process is mastered, however, we ask that you please use Pull-Ups. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
We provide assorted age-appropriate snacks and drinks for all kidz. Feel free to ask one of our volunteers about snacks if you have any questions! Again, please make sure to let us know if your child has any food allergies.
Checking On Your Child
Feel free to check on your little one in any of the locations at any time during the service. We simply ask that you do so discreetly, trying not to let your child see you. If they do see you and become upset, we may ask you to assist in the room until your child is comforted again.
Regarding Your Child’s Health
For the protection of all the children, 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. Remember, there is an incubation period for most diseases.
Please do not put your child in any of the preschool facilities while they are at risk of exposing other children. Thank you in advance for helping us keep our room a healthy place for all.
We understand that children will at times become ill very suddenly. Should your child show any symptoms, we will contact you in your class or service. It is imperative that you not leave the church campus while your child is in our care. In the event of an emergency, you should be readily available.
If you’d prefer to keep your child with you during service and a need arises, a Family Room is located in Building 400, downstairs at the end of the hall, where you can watch the worship and teaching through a live feed. Our hope is this allows you to care for your child and take part in the service.
