Waterloo Kids is the children’s ministry at Waterloo Church. We want you, as parents, to feel completely comfortable leaving your children with us. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing your kids a caring and safe environment where they can learn about God in a way that’s appropriate for their age level. We want your child to have a great relationship with us, their friends, and especially Jesus!
We want to see all children (6 weeks – 5th grade) attending Waterloo Kids. We have developed specific environments for each age group as well as strategic curriculum to help them learn more about Jesus. However, if a parent chooses not to have their child participate in Waterloo Kids, they are welcome to sit towards the back of the auditorium with their child.
As you and your child approach our Waterloo Kids Check-In area, you will be greeted by a member of our Check-In Team. On your first visit, we will ask you for some information so that we can register your child. (click Here to pre-register your kids online.) You will receive a name tag for your child and a corresponding security tag for yourself. Please alert check-in personnel of any information that will help in caring for your child, such as allergies and special needs.
A Waterloo Kids Team Member will escort you and your child to his or her appropriate classroom. Rest assured, all Waterloo Kids Team Member serving in this area have completed a thorough application, background check and training program. You can be confident that your child is well-cared for and having a great time learning about God while you are in the service.
When you come to pick up your child, please have your security tag visible. For the protection of your child, you will not be allowed inside the Waterloo Kids area without it. The classroom leader will check your security tag and your child’s name tag for a match before allowing the child to leave the room. A child will not be able to leave the room without the presentation of the security tag. In the event you lose your security tag, you will be asked to show proper identification before your child may leave with you.
If for some reason your child were to need you during the service, your child’s security number will appear on the screen in the main service. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately through the back and make your way to your child’s room.
