KidZONE Children's ministry

The KidZONE is our ministry for children from birth through grade five. It's a fun place for kids to learn about God, discover how much He loves them and learn to walk daily in relationship with Him. The KidZONE is identical at all of CCC's services. 


Our Values

Safety: Physical, Emotional, Spiritual

Loving, Nurturing Environment

Fun

Child Targeted


Nursery (birthday through Age 3)

Drop your little ones off at the KidZONE nursery, located at the front of the church, just to the south of the main lobby. Our KidZONE nursery staff will provide excellent care for your infant/toddlers while you are in the adult service. Children will hear a Bible story, color a picture and play with others, all while being encouraged and loved by our experienced and screened KidZONE team. Don't worry - if your child needs you, we will come and find you to be sure their needs are being met. 

Parents will receive a numbered bracelet when their child is dropped off. Please keep the bracelet with you. You will need it in order to pick up your child after the service. The wristband helps us to identify parents to help keep children safe. 



Primary (Age 4-7) and Elementary (age 8-Grade 5)

Childhood is a time of great imagination and excitement for life. The KidZONE is full of both. Check your children ages 4 through grade 5 in at the Rainbow Room, which is located just to the right of the main church lobby entrance. Children will receive a name badge and for children ages 4-7, parents will receive a bracelet which you will need when you pick up your child. The wristband helps us to identify parents of our youngest children to help keep children safe. 


Primary and Elementary begin in the same room with activities, games, music, drama, and a lesson from the Bible. We call this Large Group. After large group, children will break into two classrooms, Primary and Elementary. Primary children remain in the Rainbow Room while Elementary children line up and go to the Red, White & Blue Room which is just to the right as you enter the main lobby from outside. 

Small groups occur in these classrooms where children will talk about the lesson and how it relates to their lives. It's also where they do activity sheets, review the memory verse for the week and build relationships with other kids and leaders. 


At the end of the service, parents pick up their Primary aged children from the white door to the left of the main stage in the sanctuary. Parents of kids ages 8 through Grade 5 should arrange to meet their child either in the classroom or in the main church lobby. The elementary kids are dismissed at the end of the adult service, while the Primary and Nursery children must await their parents return. 

Information for parents


Allergies/Special Needs
Please notify the KidZONE leaders of any allergies that your child may have. Occasionally snacks are made available for children. Additionally, please let us know of any special needs or special requirements you have for your child. We will do our best to serve your child according to your requests. 


Snacks
Children ages 18 months through 3 years old are served snacks and juice boxes each week provided by the KidZONE. Snacks are simple and include animal crackers, fish crackers or graham crackers. 


Emergencies
In the event of an emergency while your child is in the KidZONE, a volunteer will notify our staff who will be sure to contact you so you can attend to your child's needs. 


Belongings
Please mark all of your child's belonging with your child's name, including the diaper bag, toys and cups. Please include extra diapers, a change of clothing, a non-spill drink container and a favorite blanket or toy if your child is attached to one. 


Diaper Changing
Our staff will be sure that children are changed as changing is needed. If you have any special concerns regarding changing, please let our staff know when you drop your child off. 


Wellness Policy
We ask that parents only bring their children to the KidZONE if their children are healthy and without colds or other contagious illnesses in an effort to protect the other children from contacting the illness. 


Restroom Policy
We ask all parents to have their children use the restrooms before signing them in to the KidZONE. Due to the design of our facility, it's important that children are reminded each week in order to prevent distractions within the KidZONE as well as within the sanctuary. Restrooms are located toward the rear of the sanctuary.


Staffing
All volunteers/staff have been screened by our pastoral staff. All have filled out appropriate applications and have had background checks done to be sure that your child will receive the most safe, secure environment we can possibly provide. The KidZONE nursery is staffed by a preschool professional who has been with CCC since 2002 and is present in the nursery for most services.
