City Kids Special Needs
Special Needs class is designed specifically for those children with special needs. During the Sunday 11am service Special Needs class is available. We have a team of well-trained loving adults along with caring helpers to love and comfort the children with Special Needs. We welcome children with Autism, Down's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and ADHD. This program currently focuses on infants to adult.
We are currently working on a Buddies Program for some children who need extra help in order to participate in our regular weekend programs. This program currently focuses on infants to 5th grade. This ministry will be available with prior notice during the Sunday 11am service. A volunteer (Buddy), will work one-on-one with the kids in the regular classroom. If you have a child who would benefit from having a one-to-one buddy, or if you would like to learn more about becoming a buddy, please contact us.
Please check your child in at the City Kids check-in kiosk each week. For your child’s first visit, you will be asked to register at our "New Families" Kiosk. We use this to record pertinent information and dates when your child visits us. After your initial visit, they become a regular attendee and will receive a permanent name sticker. It is important that you indicate if your child has any allergies, special needs, or custody issues so we can address your needs.
Security & Pick-up:
Numbers are assigned at the check-in kiosk, a name/number sticker is presented to the parent who checked the child in. If your child should need you during the service, this number will flash on the red lighted number panel located in the sanctuaries. At pick up, your child will only be released to the person with the name/number claim sticker. All City Kids team members go through special training and are processed and screened for Megan’s Law and International clearance. They also will be wearing a name badge to identify them as City Kids team members.
First time users can register your children now to be sure they are in the system before you attend.
