  • +Our Program

    At South Harbor Kids, you will find:

    safe place where you can feel comfortable bringing your children.

    Highly committed volunteers who are screened, trained, and excited to love your children and help them learn and grow in their relationship with Christ.

    fun environment that your children will not want to miss. Do not be surprised if they drag you out of bed on a Sunday morning!

    family focus that will help you as parents to raise your children to be fully devoted followers of Christ.

     

    Nursery: Birth through 3-year olds
    The nursery is staffed by trained volunteers who love to care for young children. When you come, we will check-in your child and provide you with details on how you will be contacted if you are needed during the service.

    Preschool: 3-year and 4-year olds
    In preschool, children experience play time, games, crafts, worship, and multimedia teaching. All of this is designed to teach the Bible story in a creative and engaging way.

    Elementary: Pre-K through grade five
    In elementary school, children engage with games, worship, interactive learning and faith skills development. This environment becomes a fantastic way to help kids learn about God and apply what they learn into their own lives!

  • +Your First Visit & Registration

    The nursery is located on the west side of the building, while the kids wing is located on the east side. Both have a check-in desk where we will have you complete a registration form.

    Click here for a printable registration form if you wish to fill it out prior to your first visit.

    We will enter your information into our check-in system and assign your child to a small group. Then we will provide you with important information about our program before we show you where to go.

    After your first visit, parents can use the self-check-in stations located at the kids wing check-in desk.

  • +Parent Communication

    We send weekly emails to keep parents well informed of what we’re teaching each Sunday so that you can continue the conversation at home! These emails also include upcoming events, program updates, and more.
