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.

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 CHILDCARE

Our hope is to pour fuel on the gospel flame that you are already building at home. With two options to choose from, parents have the ability to find a plan that works for their busy lives.

Tae Kwon Do

Tae Kwon Do (“The art of kicking and punching” or “the way of foot and fist”) is a traditional Korean martial art that first came to America in the 1950’s. Students learn self-discipline and control, and are taught to embody the five tenets of Tae Kwon Do: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and an indomitable spirit. Students will also improve their physical fitness as they hone their kicking and punching techniques. Tae Kwon Do is not a self-defense class, though many of the techniques do translate into real-world scenarios. For more information, please contact Joe Anderson at HRC@sbts.edu.

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.

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.
