Safety & Procedures That's a cool idea!

Kids Ministry Room Signs

Handwashing Procedure Sign

On a recent visit to Woodstock City Church, I noticed their signs.  There were 2 things that I noticed.  I noticed what signs they had displayed, and what signs they didn’t have displayed.

Let’s start with the signs they didn’t have up.  They didn’t have any printed or hand written signs on their walls or doors.  There were no signs advertising upcoming events or displaying messages.  This made their space clean, and clutter free.  It also meant that any signs that were displayed were noticed because they looked professional, clear and to the point.  Here were some signs that they did have on their walls:


Check in Questions Sign

This sign was just on the inside of the room beside the door.  It prompted volunteers to ask important questions when kids arrived.

Room Schedule Sign

This sign clearly outlined how the program was supposed to run and what time each section started and ended for each service.

New Volunteer Check List

This sign was for training new volunteers.  This made sure that everything was covered so that new volunteers knew the policies and procedures while volunteering in that room.

Bathroom Policy Sign

This sign clearly communicated the bathroom policy and was posted beside the restroom door in every kids room.  Here are a few more signs that were posted in their kids rooms.

Toy Cleaning Procedure Sign

Snack Sign

Handwashing Procedure Sign

What signs do you have in your kids rooms?  Are there any signs you need to remove so that more attention can be given to signs that are important?  Are there any signs that you could include that you do not currently have posted?  Hopefully, these ideas will help you be more intentional with the signs you post in your kids rooms.

      Hi Carol, unfortunately I do not really know what this is. My guess is it is a child safe cleaner that they use for basic cleaning.

      Hi Nicole, These signs are not available for purchase, but with a graphic program like InDesign or Photoshop or even Word, you should be able to make something similar.
