When I went to Northpoint Community Church in Atlanta, I was excited to see their Kids Area. Each area was appropriately themed for the kids in that age group. These pictures are from their preschool area. Preschoolers sat on wide risers with their small groups to listen to the Bible Story. (Chairs were set up for the conference. Preschoolers sit on the floor of the risers, not on chairs.)
The hallways were brightly painted and doors had gates on them to keep kids in while the doors were open.
They had signs to communicate information to parents. The volunteers were friendly and very helpful. Room capacity and volunteer to child ratios were displayed. I got the impression that if you left your child there, they would be safe and well cared for.
As I walked through their kids area, they communicated a message without speaking to a single person.
Attention to detail.
Planned in advance.
Volunteers well trained.
Kids are valued.
Their attention to detail was amazing. They were focused on kids having a great experience while they were there. The preschoolers had a lesson area that was creative and fun. Bible stories were communicated in a way that was age appropriate and relevant for preschoolers.
The rooms were clean, organized and safe. Policies and information for volunteers were posted in the room in locations where volunteers would see them.
There was so much to see and take in on my tour of Northpoint Church. If you ever have an opportunity to go visit their church, take it!
