Mission

We are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children of the seminary community. It is our goal to serve families well as they prepare for ministry. We do this by offering diverse programs that encourage children in their spiritual growth.

 

 

KIDCHECK

 

 

At Southern Seminary, nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of your children.  That’s why we’ve chosen 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 will go live with KidCheck on July 25.  It is important you create your account prior to this date.  If you haven’t already created your free account, please do so by going to go.kidcheck.com, selecting “Create Your KidCheck Account,” and following 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 the above date helps us have a smooth transition and helps your first check-in go more quickly so you can get on your way.  

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

Policies

Southern’s Children’s Department programs are now 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: serving the seminary community as they prepare for ministry. By instituting this new policy we will be able to use our resources more effectively to reach this goal.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. 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.

In the event that you cannot be contacted, you authorize the HRC to obtain emergency medical care for my child.

New Programs for Fall 2018

Mother's Day Out

Southern’s Mother’s Day Out program offers weekly class times that engage children in whole brain teaching. With the use of “The Gospel Story Curriculum” our trained staff will 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.

A space will be reserved for your children for both Tuesday and Thursday for a month. Feel free to drop your children off one day or both days, or no days at all. It’s up to you.
