How do I check my child in each Sunday?
Children are checked in using a computerized Check-In system. The check-in computers are located in the main Concourse by the Splash Info Center. Parents scan their assigned bar code or type in their 10 digit phone number and choose the service(s) their child is attending. A name tag will print for each child and for each service they are attending. It will also print a Security ID Label for the parent or guardian. When you pick your child up, please show the Security ID Label to the greeter and they will gather your child and their belongings for you. For the safety of the children, we ask parents to wait outside the room when dropping off or picking up.
How do I get a bar code?
Stop by the Splash Info Center to have a bar code assigned to your family. You may use any bar code you currently have (King Soopers card, Driver's License, etc) or we can assign you a Splash key tag. Each parent can be assigned a bar code.
What if I’m needed during the service?
Part of the check-in process includes a text messaging option. Should your child need you during service, we are able to send one or both parents a text message. If you do not wish to receive text messages, you can bypass that part of check-in. We then use the Security ID number printed on the pick up label. Should we need you during the service, the security ID number will appear on the main screens in the Worship Center. For guests, the number is located on your welcome postcard.
When does my child promote to the next age group?
Children are promoted in August each year.
Can my pre-teen or teen serve in Splash?
Kids in The Bridge (5th and 6th grade) are welcome to serve in The Cove (infants-3 years old) once they complete an application, initial meeting with the director, and training. Youth in junior or senior high are also welcome to serve in our rooms. We require youth workers to be at least 5 years older than the kids they’re working with.
What is your health policy?
In an ongoing effort to keep our kids, families, and ministry partners healthy and happy, we kindly ask that you abide by the following health policy. Please do not bring your child to any church function if he/she has any of the following:
Any sign of infection
Runny nose that is not clear
Fever, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours
Illness requiring an antibiotic that has not been administered until illness is no longer contagious
How is discipline handled?
A positive, loving approach to discipline is followed. We believe that established behavior boundaries result in more fun and more learning for everyone. Our teachers use positive reinforcement and redirection and focus on the action rather than the child in order to build self-esteem and preserve a healthy self-concept. The word discipline comes from the same root as the word disciple and means, "to teach". Therefore, our discipline strategies focus on:
Teaching children responsible behavior
Providing opportunities for children to self-correct
Ensuring children’s and leaders’ safety
Providing an environment conducive to learning
