Check-In

In order to maintain the safety of every child, we have implicated an easy-to-use check-in system. Security badges with the child's photo are issued to parents or guardians, and the child is issued a security badge with the parents'/guardians' photo. Only parents/guardians with an authorized security badge will be allowed access into our Preschool Area. Parents/Guardians without security badges will be issued a temporary security badge and escorted to and from the Preschool classrooms by one of our friendly greeters. If we need to contact you while your child is with us, we provide pagers through a paging system. All pagers are vibrating, and operate anywhere within the church building.
