Early Childhood

We believe that all children need a fun place to worship and learn about growing in a personal relationship with God.

At KidsChurch Early Childhood, we’re here to help you and your family live and love like Jesus right here in Arvada. The goal of our classes, led by trained leaders in age appropriate classrooms, is to give each child the opportunity to learn that God made them, God loves them and Jesus wants to be their best friend.

Program Overview
Classes are offered during both the 9:00am and 10:45am services for 6 week old babies through kindergarten. Each class spends time playing, singing, doing a small group activity, praying and learning about Jesus through a Bible-based curriculum. We love all the children that attend KidsChurch and do our best to ensure they have a safe and Jesus-centered experience.

*Please remain on campus while your child is at KidsChurch Early Childhood.

Student Check-In
Children’s safety is built into our program. When you arrive, your child will be checked in with a numbered ID sticker, one for your child to wear and one for you to match at pick-up. If an ID sticker is lost, please be prepared to show a photo ID to a staff member to check your child out. In the event that we need to contact you during KidsChurch Early Childhood, the ID number will be posted on the auditorium screen. Security team members will meet you in the hallway to help you locate your child.

Volunteer Staff & Leaders
Be assured that all volunteers have been cleared through a national background check and are working together in groups to make KidsChurch Early Childhood safe for your child. We value your trust and have checks and balances in place to keep your child safe. Staff and volunteers work in pairs and will never be alone with a child. You can identify KidsChurch leaders and staff by their ID badge with their picture and name on it. We encourage you to introduce yourself to leaders and get to know them more each week.

VIP Program for Kids with Special Needs
KidsChurch Early Childhood leaders are equipped to handle the many different situations they encounter. All kids are welcome. If your child has a food allergy, medical condition or learning challenge, please let our staff know. We have alert stickers available at all check-in stations for you to attach to your child’s clothing. Feel free to note any necessary information on the sticker after discussing it with staff. A VIP program is available for kids with more specific needs. To learn more about that program or to enroll your child, please contact Scott Downing at least one week in advance of attending.

Mothers Room
We understand that parents can choose to keep their children with them for the worship service. Children are welcome in the auditorium. Foothills offers a comfortable “mothers room” in the back of the auditorium for nursing mothers to continue to participate in the worship service with privacy.
