What will my kids learn in Lake Sawyer Kids?

In Lake Sawyer Kids preschool, we use First Look curriculum from Orange where our desire is to give preschoolers their first look of Jesus.  Everything we teach is based on three simple truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Our goal is to incite WONDER in every preschooler and to meet them where they are at cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and socially.  Through fun, engaging age-appropriate activities, we are building their spiritual foundation.

In Lake Sawyer Kids elementary, we use 252 curriculum from Orange.  252 is named for how Jesus grew in Luke 2:52..."in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and men."  Kids in elementary learn three basic truths: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.  In Lake Sawyer Kids, our Sundays are designed to promote DISCOVERY using hands-on activities where everyone participates in small groups.  Kids are invited into a new understanding of how to find and follow Jesus.

How do I check my child in to Lake Sawyer Kids?

On your first visit, look for the Lake Sawyer Kids Check-In area, located in Water A Bldg. If you can’t find it, one of our volunteers will be happy to help you!
At Check-In, you'll be welcomed by a Lake Sawyer Kids volunteer eager to meet your family and show you how Lake Sawyer Kids works. To check your child in, we’ll need some information at that time, including a family member's name, your child's name and birthday, your address, your phone number, and any special instructions. We'll be there every step of the way, right up to when you drop your kids off at the appropriate room, so feel free to ask questions!

What if my child misses a weekend?

You can stay engaged with everything your child is learning in class by downloading the Parent Cue app.

I have a child in 5th grade and in kindergarten, can they be in the same room?

We want children to have the best experience possible and we do that by having kids in their age appropriate areas. If you have a friend visiting, a relative from out of town, we can have the kids both go in the lower grade area.

How does Lake Sawyer Kids ensure my kid is safe and secure?

In Lake Sawyer Kids, safety is one of our highest priorities. That's why we have a secure check-in system.  Upon check-in, you'll receive matching identification stickers. Your child will need to wear their name tag sticker and you will need to keep the matching tag. After the service, you'll show the Lake Sawyer leader your matching tag in order for your child to be released from their room.

Every Lake Sawyer Kids volunteer leader is screened, participates in a background check, and receives appropriate training from our staff.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will send you a text message.

I have a child with special needs. Is there anything I need to know before I take my child to Lake Sawyer Kids?

If you have a child with special needs who might need a little extra support to participate in Lake Sawyer Kids, we'd love to partner with you to make their experience amazing! Please email and we can help you through the process.

What is your policy on allergies/medications?

To ensure safety, our environments are peanut-free zones and we do not provide food or snacks for children during our services. If your child requires an epi-pen, and you would like to turn it in, then you may give it to the ministry lead for that area. We require it to be in its original packaging.

We do not administer any medication to children including Benadryl, Claritin, Ibuprofen, etc.

What is your well child policy?

These are the things we look for. If your child has these, we ask you to stay home, rest up, and feel better. You and your child can watch service online in the meantime.
