Planning your Visit: What to Expect

Sunday Morning Check-in

Check-in is open from 9:15-9:30am in Family Connect, located on the back end of the Sanctuary in the annex. 


A greeter will be stationed at the entry way to welcome you and verify registration. When space is available, walk-ins are welcome, however we strongly encourage registration as there is limited space and openings will be filled first come first serve.


The greeter will be available to give you more information and help you with registration. If this is your first time back since HCC Kids reopening or if you are a new to HCC Kids, a check-in person will help you complete the annual intake forms and enter in your information to our check in system. See above for how to complete this form online.


Once your child is registered for the service and annual paperwork is completed, you will move to the check-in team member completing the COVID screener. The check-in team member will utilize a contactless thermometer to check temperatures.


NOTE: For safety, all HCC Kids volunteers are required to wear masks. Children are not required to wear masks.


Wellness Check

The screening team member will ask the following questions after checking your child's temperature.

  1. SYMPTOMS: Have you or your child had a fever (99 or high) or other known COVID-19 symptoms in the last 24 hours?
  2. EXPOSURE: Have you or your child been in the presence of someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days?

Wellness Policies

  1. Any child with a fever of 99 degrees or higher will not be permitted to check-in.
  2. Any caregiver who answers “yes” to COVID symptoms in the past 24 hours or exposure to a confirmed COVID case in the last 14-days will not be permitted to check-in.

After completing the screener, the check-in team member will direct families where to stand as they wait to check-in their child.

Places are marked on the ground for families to physically distance their families as they wait in line.


Security Tags

Families will check-in their children to the HCC Kids attendant outside of the classrooms. Security tags will print for the parent and child. Parents are to keep their tags for verification at pick up. Permitted pick-up/drop-off persons are listed in our system. If a caregiver loses their security tag, please show the check in person your driver’s license or photo ID to verify yourself as a safe pick up person.


During Service

Service typically lasts 9:30-10:45am. Classrooms are held as safe ratios to allow for physical distancing in small groups. 


Curriculum

Families can learn more about we are learning about on our Kids Online Resources page. 


Parent Communication

During service, if a child needs assistance, parents will be contacted by text message through the planning center check-in system.


Check-out

Check-out usually runs from 10:45-11:00am in Family Connect, located on the back end of the Sanctuary in the annex. Check-in team members are available for assistance throughout service for early check-in or late drop-off. 


To reduce congestion in the hallway, we ask that only one permitted person come to pick-up the child.


Have your security tag ready! Physical distancing markers are located on the hallway floor directing you to the check-out station. 

  1. The check-out team will direct you to scan your badge and confirm your identity as a permitted pick up person. 
  2. The check-out team will then take your sticker and direct your to a designated number on the wall to wait. 
  3. The check-out team will pick up your child from their designated rooms and bring them to you. 

Email kids@hcconline.org will additional questions or comments. Feedback is especially welcome in this season!

Safe Ratios

Bathroom Policy

Parents are encouraged to take a pit stop at the bathroom before dropping off their child for a bathroom break and handwashing. To ensure safety for kids and security for parents our restroom policy is as follows. In the need of a restroom break the child will be escorted by two volunteers aged 18 or over to independently use the restroom. If they were to require assistance during the restroom the caregiver will be notified. 


Diaper Policy

We are not changing diapers in this season. If a child has a dirty diaper, the parent will be notified by text message through the planning center check-in system.


Photo Policy

An ID photo is taken of the caregiver and child for their safety, only staff and team members will have access to the photo.

 *We will ask for additional consent for any photos taken for promotional purposes.
