KID CITY


Our mission at Kid City is to provide a fun and safe space for kids to explore faith in Jesus.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

CLASS SIZE AND AGE RANGES

  • Class sizes are generally smaller than 12 students per each class and we attempt to maintain a maximum teacher to student ratio of 1:5.

  • Children ages 0-2 are cared for in the nursery. This class is less content focused, and more care-focused. Often times, this class is spent playing with toys, reading storybooks, and eating snacks (typically cheerios) provided. Volunteers not permitted to change diapers.

  • Children ages 3-7 learn and play in small groups: typically with an activity or craft, a story, a follow-up activity, and a time of prayer.

  • Children ages 8-12 listen, discuss and move about during class: typically with an activity or craft, a story, a follow-up activity, and a time of prayer.

  • We don’t currently have many children older than 12, and so for right now, children above 12 are encouraged to remain with their parents in the main space upstairs.


ALLERGIES AND DIETARY RESTRICTIONS

We understand each child may have special needs and try to accommodate with appropriate and inclusive snacks. Dietary restrictions and allergies noted during registration will always be visible on the child’s name tag. Peanuts are not allowed in any form in the classroom as a precaution.
