FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions...

 

Does Kids Quest cost anything?

Kids Quest is a ministry to children and there is no cost on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings. We are thrilled you and your family are joining us at Centerpoint.

 

How old does my child have to be to attend Kids Quest?

KidsQuest is for all kids, infants through fifth grade.

 

Do I have to pre-register?

No pre-registration is necessary.

 

How do I check in my child on Sunday?

Visit either the nursery or the K-5 Computer Counter and use a touch screen computer to check-in your child(ren). After your finish your check-in, you will receive a nametag for each child and ONE security card per family.

 

How do I pick up my child on Sunday?

We ask that you pick up your child as soon as the service ends so that we can release our volunteers when all of the children have been picked up. Go directly to your child's class. Show your security tag to your child's teacher so that he/she may verify the matching codes and you're good to go!

 

KidsQuest looks like fun. What if I want to volunteer in my child's room?

We would love to have you help out at Kids Quest! Some parents volunteer twice a month and others volunteer less or more frequently. We are extremely flexible! You will need to attend our Child Protection process to become a volunteer. Simply let us know you are interested. Contact either Abby or Bekah!

 

Wellness

We ask that sick children not attend KidsQuest programs in order to ensure the health of children and staff.

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that a child should not leave home when  any of the following symptoms exist:

 

- Fever (over 100.5) degrees in the last 24 hours

- Vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours

- Sore throat

- Untreated pink eye or other eye infection

 

These are the guidelines that we follow and we expect that a child or volunteer be free of fever for 24 hours before coming back to Kids Quest. We do not dispense any medication to a child. If a child appears to be ill, we will notify the parent immediately by posting the family’s number on the screen in the auditorium on Sunday mornings, on Wednesday evenings, we will call you.

 

 

Security

The staff of Kids Quest strives to provide an extremely fun, yet safe environment for your children. The facilities and emergency procedures have been approved by the local Fire Department.

 

Our Sunday School & nursery teams also consist of committed volunteers that have gone through a Health & Safety Training (child protection training), a background check and reference checks.

 

A check-in system has been put into place for all children from infants through fifth grade. Each week, your child will be checked in and out at the Parent Pager system in the Worship Center Lobby.

 

Safety is one of our key values and to uphold that value, we will not release a child to anyone other than the person who is authorized to check the child in and out. You will be asked to show the check out slip in order to gain admittance into your child’s room. This may take some time as we check everything. Please wait patiently outside your child’s room as we ensure that all kids are checked out safely.
