Children's Department

Please Take Note:

Mission

The Children’s Department is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment for the children of the seminary community. It is our goal to serve families by offering programs that strive to encourage the children of Southern.

KIDCHECK

 

 

At Southern Seminary, nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of your children.  That’s why we chose KidCheck as our children’s check-in solution to bring you the best check-in experience and to allow us to partner with you to keep your children safe.

We started using KidCheck on July 25.  It is important you create your free account here: go.kidcheck.com, select “Create Your KidCheck Account,” and follow the on-screen prompts. Alternatively, you can download the KidCheck Mobile Check-In app from the App Store or Google Play Store to create, manage, and update your account right on your phone (does not complete check-in).

You can create your account from the comfort of home; it’s simple and will only take a few minutes.  Creating your account prior to drop-off allows a smooth transition and helps your first check-in go quickly.  

Once you’ve created your account, simply use your 10 digit phone number to check-in with us or anywhere you use KidCheck.

Southern’s Childcare program offers weekly class times that use the “The Gospel Story Curriculum” to walk children through God’s Word with engaging activities and creative crafts. Our hope is to pour fuel on the gospel flame that you are already building at home. With three options to choose from, parents have the ability to find a plan that works for their busy lives.

 

Option One

Tuesday and Thursday Program

A space will be reserved for your children for both Tuesday and Thursday for a month. Feel free to drop your children off on one or both days. We will hold your child’s space in our program regardless of what time you arrive. This allows up to ten hours of care each week and even up to 45 hours a month (depending on the month).

Option Two

Tuesday or Thursday Program

A space will be reserved for your child for either Tuesday or Thursday for a month. Choose one day a week to be your consistent drop-off day. We will hold your child’s space in our program regardless of what time you arrive. This allows up to five hours of care each week and even up to 25 hours a month (depending on the month). If your selected day of the week no longer works for your schedule, contact us to request a day change.

Policies

Southern’s Children’s Department programs are limited to Southern affiliates. Although we have enjoyed serving those in the Louisville area, as our numbers grow we must hold fast to our mission of serving the seminary community as they prepare for ministry. By instituting this new policy we will be able to use our resources to more effectively reach this goal.

If you have questions or concerns please contact Becca Howell at bhowell@sbts.edu or you may contact the Health and Rec. Center by phone at 502-897-4720.

By submitting registration forms, you grant permission for your child (as listed in the form), to attend the children’s program as registered for at the SBTS Health and Recreation Center. You agree to hold blameless all caregivers, assistants, and all affiliates to the Health and Recreation Center from any and all injuries that may result from this program. In the event that you cannot be contacted, you authorize the HRC to obtain emergency medical care for your child.
