Arrival is expected 45 minutes prior to Saturday 6:00pm and Sunday 8:30am worship experiences, or 30 minutes prior to the start of Sunday 9:45am and 11:15am worship experiences. Please make sure you wear either a XR shirt, lanyard, or apron. This lets the parents know you are a part of the XR volunteer team.
During the drop-off time, teachers/volunteers should be interacting with the parents in a comfortable manner, as well as engaging with the child to ensure the child is comfortable joining the class. The lead teacher should be at the door to introduce herself/himself to the parents, verify that the children are properly checked in, and verify if there are any allergies, special needs, and/or dietary restrictions.
Due to safety reasons and allergies, please do not allow outside food, drinks, candy, or toys in the classroom.
Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love, but please be attentive to each child, and never leave a child unsupervised.
Please don’t forget it's a privilege to serve Christ and His church. Teamwork makes the dream work. Our environment should be fun, uplifting, Jesus-centered, and a place where the kids cannot wait to come into the room.
For safety purposes, a few minutes after worship begins, the door should be shut, locked, and only opened for bathroom break, emergencies, and parent pick-up.
The only person to pick up a child is an adult with the matching sticker. The lead teacher should be checking to make sure that the parent’s sticker matches the child’s sticker.
To set the kids’ rooms up for success, please tidy up the rooms after each experience.
If there is an incident whereby a child shows an injury (bite mark, cut, bruise, red mark, etc), then care for the child first, then immediately find a VST member who will complete an Incident Report in order to notify the parents of the situation. VST members are located throughout the building (hallways, lobby, etc).
If there are any situations that need assistance, please contact the XRKIDS Coordinators (P.J., Tiffany, Kayla, and/or Bethanie), a VST member, or a staff member.
God works through your work no matter what your work is.
