New Info: As a precaution, Wedneday night ministries to children will not take place on either Jan. 19 or 26. We are monitoring the COVID-19 numbers, and will resume these activities when we feel it is safe to do so.
Note: Children may be checked in 15 minutes before each session.
A: Upon arrival at SPA, Nursery and Pre-School children and parents may proceed to the Second Floor, where they will find the Check-in station immediately to the left. IPads will be available, as well as someone to assist you in signing in your child, and a nametag will be printed at that time. From there, a team member will take your child to their classroom. To check out, return to the Check-in station where a team member will bring your child to you. Elementary children and parents will go through the same procedure in the Chapel, located on the main floor, directly to the left of the North entrance.
NOTE: If you have children of various age levels, all children may be checked in at the Second Floor station.
A: At this time, masks are required for all children in Pre-School and Elementary Ministries. Children in the Nursery are not required to wear a mask.
A: Nursery and Pre-School classes have a snack around the mid-way point of the session. We give them pre-packaged items such as Goldfish crackers, Fruit Gummies, etc. (Suggestions welcomed!) We do not use water fountains, but ask that parents bring a well-labeled, filled water bottle with them. These will be lined up on a counter for use during snack time, or any time a child requires a drink. Our Children’s Ministries Department is a Nut-Aware Zone.
A: All surfaces are disinfected before and after each session. As well, Nursery and Pre-School teams have one member assigned to disinfect any surface or item that is touched during the session. Small toys are not in use at this time. Each Pre-School child will have their own zip-lock baggie with a few crayons that will be labeled and wiped down after each use. Staff and children use are to use hand sanitizer as they enter and leave a room.
A: We have a zero-tolerance policy for any child or adult who may have signs of illness. Should a child start to show signs of an illness while under our care, a parent will be paged immediately to come and pick them up.
