Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Riverside Kids for the first time:

First, you will be greeted by one of our first impressions team members there; they will guide you to our child check-in kiosk. One of our many childcare workers will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check in your child at the child check-in kiosk (located in the hallway). After finding your child's name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child must wear the name tag portion while you hold onto the matching tag.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child's room and show your tag for your child to be released back to you.

During Service: If we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a text alert on the cell phone number you provided at check-in. We ask that you exit the sanctuary immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer to direct you to your child's room.

Riverside Kid's Child Safety Policy

Our Workers: To ensure the safety of your children, each of our children's ministry workers has completed and passed a background check.

Our Building: The Riverside security team monitors the building and grounds during service to maintain safety throughout the building and grounds.

Our Parents: We require that parents and guardians remain on the property at all times.

Riverside Kid's Well Child Policy

Children who show signs of sickness will not be allowed into the Riverside Kids Classrooms for the safety and wellness of all. We require that children be fever-free for 24 hours (without using fever-reducing medications) before entering Riverside Kids. This is for the health and protection of all children, families, and teachers. You are encouraged to return your child to us as soon as they are well.
