Children’s Ministry Policies & Release Form

Countryside Kids Policies

General Policies & Guidelines

  • Students are expected to respect and encourage each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.
  • Students are expected to respect all property. If a student breaks or damages property belonging to the church or preschool, the student/family may be held responsible for repairs or replacements.
  • No outside food, drink or gum in the classrooms or Celebration Center unless otherwise directed.
  • When children are not participating in an organized Countryside Kids group or event, parents/guardians are responsible for supervision and their children’s actions.
  • Please have children use the restroom prior to all activities.
  • If your child has any allergies, please notify classroom leaders as needed. We will always communicate any registration paperwork notes, but it is always helpful (for newer leaders especially) to hear this information and gather further information from you as needed.
  • We follow the same guidelines as schools in regard to wellness. Children must be symptom free from the following (without medication) for at least 24 hours before attending our programming:
