Frequently Asked Questions
Who is with my child?
Every person serving in Adventure Village serves because he or she has demonstrated a love for children and an understanding of the responsibility that is required in caring for them. Each volunteer goes through a background check, a training orientation, and is supervised by a ministry leader.
What is the procedure to drop off and pick up my child?
We have taken several steps to ensure the safety of your child. A volunteer will greet you at a sign-in table at the entrance to the ministry. He or she will take your name and your child's name. Your child will be given a name tag and number and you will be given a matching tag and number that you will be asked to show when you came back to pick up your child. You will also be asked to write down any pertinent information regarding your child, such as allergies or special needs. You are welcome to escort your child into their ministry area so you can see the class and meet the other teachers.
What if my child is upset?
Many children have initial separation anxiety but calm down very quickly. If your child remains upset for a prolonged period, we will flash the number from your parent/child name tag on the screen so you will know to come to check on your child, or someone will come get you.
What if there is an emergency?
Each ministry area has emergency exits and volunteers have been trained to take the children outside and meet the parents at the front of the building. Each ministry also has a first aid kit for minor problems.
What will my child do while I'm in church?
Every week volunteers prepare a variety of activities for children to explore God on their developmental level. The children enjoy music, crafts, skits, prayer, games, snacks, stories, and much, much more. Most importantly the children establish relationships with volunteers who care about them and are willing to invest in these children so both the volunteer and children develop a stronger relationship with Jesus.
