What is Connect | Kids?

Connect | Kids Check-in Procedures
We want to make sure that our space is safe and secure while you're entrusting your child to our care. That's why we use a number of safety measures designed to keep your kid safe. One of those measures is our tablet-based check-in system.
If you've never joined us at Connect | Kids before, you can pre-register online to make things easier for you when you get here. Using the pre-registration process means you'll only need your phone number when you arrive.
Drop Off & Pick Up
You may drop off your child at the nursery or for classes no earlier than 10 minutes prior to the start of services.
Make sure they have their nametag on and you've got your security claim sticker.
During services if there's a need for us to get ahold of you, the security claim sticker number will flash on the screen. Simply slip out of worship and head to your child's room to respond.
To pickup your kids at the end of the day, bring your secuirty claim sticker and a kids team member will match your claim tag to your kids tag.
Tablet Check-in System:
If you've been to Christ Church before or have pre-registered online, it's as simple as heading to the back of Fellowship Hall to check in. Simply use your phone number (with area code) to pull up your child. Select the child to check in and where they're going (classes vs. nursery).
Once checked in, your child will get a sweet nametag to wear and parents/guardians will recieve security tags (with a matching code) to claim their kids after programming.
