Toddlers is for kids from 2-4 years old. It's a full hour of non-stop fun as our preschoolers worship, have a simple Bible based teaching and small group time with activities and games. Even our youngest kids will enjoy a meaningful time of growth as they learn about Jesus. Our youngest kids learn a memory verse every month! We will strive to make your child's experience at North Creek one of the highlights of their week.
What to Expect
What To Bring
When packing a diaper bag for your child, please include the following items:
- Two disposable diapers. No cloth diapers, please.
- Pacifier or other items your child might need for security.
Please label all personal items with your child’s first and last name before arriving at your child’s class. This helps us keep track of your child’s items.
When You Arrive At Your Child’s Room
A leader will meet you at the check-in area to receive your child, diaper bag and any other necessary items. Please note any information that will help in caring for your child such as allergies and special needs.
At the time of check-in, you can register your child and they will receive a label with their class and number printed on it. You will be given a matching label with the same number. If you are needed to return to your child’s classroom, your child’s number will be shown on the screen in the main auditorium. We ask that you present the label upon return to your child’s room. We will verify that your number matches that of your child and then release your child to you. A child will not be released to a parent without presentation of the assigned security label.
Snacks are provided for children ages 18-48 months as they leave the building. There is a snack table with goodie bags for you child to grab as they exit.
After you have completed the check-in process, simply wave a quick good-bye and leave for the service. As you know it is normal for little ones to cry when leaving a parent. This does not last long, and separation becomes easier over time. Our leaders will immediately try to create interest in a toy or activity and give assurance that you will return after the worship service is completed. If your child cries for an extended period of time of 10 minutes, we will put your child’s number up so you will be able to assist your child.
Checking On Your Child
Feel free to check on your little one at any time during the service. However, we ask that you do so discreetly, trying not to let your child see you.
Leaders will expect the same person to drop off and pick up each child unless special instructions are given at check-in. Please make sure that all your child’s personal items have been returned to you before you leave the premises. Lost and found items will be retained for a short time. Items not claimed after one month are donated to a charitable organization.
