Welcome Back to First Orlando Kids!

In the last several weeks, we have monitored guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe way. After a significant amount of prayer and preparation, we’re excited to open KIDS programming at our John Young Campus! We have taken extra safety measures so that your child will hear about Jesus on their level while having fun, and most importantly they’ll be staying safe and healthy.

Our step by step process to being together again calls for our teams to fully sanitize and prepare the rooms in between each of our services. As we reopen in-person Kids programming in this step, families may only register their child to attend First Orlando Kids during one service each Sunday.

What to Expect:

Like our redesigned weekend services, we’re taking additional steps to keep our KIDS environments safe and fun for your family.

  • We’ve increased cleaning protocols in our KIDS spaces during and between services.
  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be available in KIDS lobby and hallway area.
  • All toys and hard surfaces will be sanitized during and after every service.
  • We’ve implemented a weekly reservation system for KIDS programming, so that we can know how many kids to expect each week as we prepare space, rooms, volunteers and safety protocols.

Each week, RSVP your child(ren) by Friday at Noon for the upcoming Sunday.

  • We are following CDC Guidelines to setup rooms that are not overcrowded and provide space for social distancing.
  • When you RSVP for your child(ren), you are helping us make sure we have enough open rooms and volunteers to serve in those rooms.

KIDS Programming will be located in our new KIDS 1 Building, Preschool and Special Needs will be located on the first floor and Elementary will be located on the second floor.

  • We encourage all families to use the entrance that is connected to Welcome Center A, parking near Henry Chapel will provide best access.

When you arrive to campus, be ready for a redesigned check-in process to help support a safe environment.

  • Every staff member, volunteer, and child in KIDS will have their temperature taken before checking in to KIDS programming. We aren’t able to check in anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher.
  • All staff and volunteers will be wearing masks. We have masks available at our check in desks for kids who would like to wear one, however, masks are not required for children attending KIDS programming
  • We will have volunteers available to help your family at the check-in desks and kiosks.
  • We encourage you to only send one parent into KIDS for drop-off and pick-up to help limit traffic in the hallways.
  • Be sure to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before entering a KIDS classroom. Encourage your child to do the same.
  • You’ll see lots of big waves, so let’s avoid hugs, high-fives, and handshakes.

We’ll all need to work together to help keep KIDS safe, so please stay home and participate in KIDS Online if your child:

  • Has had a fever in the past 14 days.
  • Shows any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Has been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
