At Fairfield Foursquare, our kids (infant through 4th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
Your first visit
At your first visit, you may be a little nervous about handing your kids off to be cared for by strangers. We have a staff who is prepared to greet you and put you at ease right away. After you enter the building, you will be directed to our children's check in station. There, we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room. Please note, upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following information (NOTE: we value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone): parent/guardian name(s), child's name, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children.
How Check-in works
You can check-in your child any time after 9:30 am. After finding your child's name in our database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. The child will wear their name tag, while you will hold on to the matching tag.
After service is complete, you will return to your child's room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, a children's ministry volunteer will locate you in the sanctuary.
Nursery // Ages 0-2
Our nursery provides a safe, clean, and nurturing atmosphere for infants and toddlers during the Sunday morning service. We believe an atmosphere of love and safety for young children allows them to experience the wonderful love of God.
While we offer childcare for infants, we also have a parent's viewing room located in the northeast corner of the sanctuary available for mothers and fathers of infants. This room is reserved exclusively for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment.
For questions about the nursery ministry, contact Lora Kessler (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit the Information Center on Sunday mornings.
Foursquare Kids // Ages 3-10
Foursquare Kids meets during both of our weekly services, offering kid-friendly worship and teaching. Videos, puppets, skits, and other activities teach relevant Biblical lessons and give kids the knowledge they need to apply to their lives.
Note: Foursquare Kids join the main service on Family Sundays (5th Sundays)
