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 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 is designed for children ages 18 months to four years of age. Once registered, each child’s place in the program will be reserved for the entire semester, allowing families to depend on SBTS as part of their weekly routine. Parents are able to choose between two options of care: once a week (Mondays) or twice a week (Tuesdays/Thursdays). During their time in Southern Childcare, children will be introduced to the alphabet, numbers 1- 10, and color recognition. For more information about this program, please contact our Coordinator of Childcare, Ashley Akesson, at email@example.com.
All payment will be processed through our KidCheck software, with the first month’s fees due at the time of registration. A reminder email will be sent for the following months.
Registration will open at midnight when the date changes to January 7, 2023. This is set by our scheduling system and cannot be changed. We apologize for the inconvenience.
If upon clicking the register link on January 7th you receive the message saying “registration is closed or class is full” this class is currently full. Classes will not be opened up for more children as our class sizes are set by our child safety ratios. In the event the class you desired is full, the waitlist listed at the end of this page is your only option unless a spot opens up that was previously taken.
Starting this semester, we are adding an open house night for the childcare program! This will be a drop in time for you and your family to visit the childcare classroom, meet teachers, get up to date policy information, and have any questions answered by the Coordinator of Childcare! No additional registration is needed other than the registration for the program.
