The Nursery

Your child is a beautiful gift from God and we are here to care for and love your baby or toddler. We also are excited to help introduce your child to their Creator through play, songs, stories, and prayer time.

Our nursery is for babies and toddlers from 6 months – 2 years. Check-in begins 30 minutes before services start. It is open during the Saturday night and Sunday morning services, and during select special seasons throughout the year. The nursery is located to the right when you walk in the main door beside the Kids Info Desk.

Our nursery features:

  • Carefully enforced check-in system
  • Strict enforcement of caregiver/child ratios: Adults 1:3 and teens 1:2
  • Separate areas for crawlers and walkers, and a quiet room with cribs
  • Weekly cleansing and disinfecting of toys
  • The most loving and gifted volunteers to care for and love on your littles

Preschool

Each week your child will be welcomed by caring and compassionate teachers and helpers. Your child will participate in singing, hear the Bible story be creatively taught, and be visited by Noah’s Park special puppet, Henrietta the Hen. Then it’s back to the classroom for prayer groups, Bible verse memorization, activity time, and craft. The activities relate directly to the Bible story and allow the teacher to re-tell and reinforce the Bible lesson. Prayer groups will allow your child to be personally prayed for each and every week they come.

We are committed to meeting their needs for love, security, understanding and acceptance in a world that is unstable, competitive and sometimes violent. Our programs are kid-oriented, our teachers, coaches and supervisors are carefully chosen and our curriculum is Biblically sound. It is a privilege to care for your children here. Together as a team, we are growing tomorrow’s leaders. Let’s give them the best. Let’s give them Jesus! After all, they are HIS kids!

The Preschool is located in the East Wing on the main floor. Check-in begins 30 minutes before services start.

 

“From the mouths of babes and infants you have ordained praise.” Psalm 8:2a

Primary Grade School: Kindergarten to Grade 2

Children register for class as early as 30 minutes before service. They then join their friends and Coaches in room 219, located on the top floor of the old building, for a time of worship at the start of each service. Children will then be divided by grade and meets in their own classroom for a time of activities, Bible study and prayer. Our children are taught the Word of God using Discipleland curriculum.

Here we seek to sow seeds of faith in our children by teaching God’s Word, modeling godly character and displaying Christ’s Love. Our programs are kid-oriented, our teachers, coaches and supervisors are carefully chosen and our curriculum is Biblically sound. It is a privilege to care for your children here. Together as a team, we are growing tomorrow’s leaders. Let’s give them the best. Let’s give them Jesus! After all, they are HIS kids!

Each week the kids are given a memory verse to memorize. Click this Memory Verse Chart  to print off this season’s schedule.

Junior Grade School: Grade 3 – Grade 5

Children register for class as early as 30 minutes before service.

Children then move into 2 separate teaching rooms for age appropriate Bible lessons. The Grade 5 children will remain in the basement, while the Grade 3 & 4 students will move to the upstairs classrooms for a time of activities, Bible study and prayer. Our children are taught the Word of God using Discipleland curriculum.

Imagine – Supportive Care

Our Mission

  • We are passionate about serving and supporting Northview families impacted by special needs and disability. Our desire is to exemplify Jesus’s character by accepting, loving, and caring for families on this journey.

Our Program

  • Supportive programming within Imagine is built upon a philosophy of customized care. Thus, we tailor our models of support for children/youth/young adults to reflect the desires and wishes of our participating families.
  • Models of support include: group programming within our specialized care setting (Imagine Center); 1:1 support within Northview Kids classes (pre-school/grade school/middle school programs); 1:1 support independent of Northview Kids classes.

General Policies & Information

  • Due to staffing and space constraints within Imagine, supportive care priority is given to Northview families over families who attend other churches.
  • Full registration is required for participation in Imagine. Northview families who desire to have their child participate are encouraged to contact the Imagine Pastor to make arrangements for an initial home visit and intake.

For further information contact the Associate Pastor of Imagine, Brent Lanigan at imagine@northview.org

Family Services

Family Services are weekend services (5:30pm Saturday, 8:30am, 10:00am and 11:30am Sunday) where Northview Kids closes over a weekend to encourage families to worship at church together! Your kids can see how the body of Christ at Northview worships and learns together, and adults get to engage in worshiping the Lord with the kids, too. So please join us for the Family Services and bring your kids!

On these weekends, Imagine and Nursery are open and running as usual. Preschoolers, however, check in and then join main service for worship in music, prayer and some other church service features. Your venue Pastor will dismiss your Preschool children to their classroom at the appropriate time. Please wait until this dismissal as children will not be able to go into their classrooms before then!

Our next Family Services are on November 11 & 12, 2017.

 

Child Dedications

You are beginning a beautiful journey. The Lord has blessed you with a very precious gift and now, you begin the significant journey of raising your child to know, love, and obey the Lord God. You are not alone. At Northview Church, we are committed to helping our parents because we know it is an important job…an overwhelming task! But most of all, it is a calling by God to all parents to love, care for and teach His children, that they may grow to walk with Him all the days of their lives.

Child dedications are held three times a year. All parents must attend a Child Dedication class held by Pastor Robyn Dueck prior to the dedication service.

Child Dedication Schedule

  • November 18 & 19, 2017
  • February 10 & 11, 2018
  • May 5 & 6, 2018

KidCheck

KidCheck is our way of ensuring your child’s safety. You are able to create a secure account where you can keep your family’s information current, and all updates can be done from your home computer. In addition, you are able to create a list of guardians, provide pertinent medical information about your children, update contact information, and upload photos.

Creating a Free Account:
If you are a regular Northview attender and have yet to make an online account, or if this is your first time visiting Northview, please visit go.kidcheck.com to create a free and secure KidCheck parent account. Read below to discover more about what KidCheck is, what are the benefits of creating a KidCheck account, and how you can Check-in a Friend.

Follow These Steps:

  • Go to go.kidcheck.com and hold your mouse over “Sign Up”, then click “Parents/Guardians”
  • Enter your info and click “I have never used KidCheck before”.
  • Enter your info again, enter Northview Community Church when it asks for your organization, click this option when it appears in the drop-down menu. Then click “Register”
  • Click “I agree” after reading the terms of use.
  • The “My Account” section is where you keep your personal profile information, child information, and your guardian list. Complete the set-up of your account by entering your mailing address (to get options for Provinces, you must first select Canada as your country below), phone options and birthday.
  • To now add your “Kids” to your account, select that tab. Then, to the left under “Page Options”, click on “Add A New Child” and you will be able to enter your chil(ren)’s information. Please note that if your child has no allergies or medical issues, please leave this field completely clear.

  • Click “Save Changes” .
  • Click the “Guardians” tabs to add your spouse, a grandparent or another guardian the same way you did your child(ren).
  • Click Save.
  • For security reasons we do not link parent accounts together. Each parent is free to create their own account, but if you want your spouse to be able to check your kids out, they will need to be listed as a guardian. Now you are registered and you can change your information anytime, by logging in with your username and password.

Registering your child’s friend?
If your child is bringing a friend to our Saturday evening or Sunday morning programs, we ask that their parent create a KidCheck account and enter you as a guardian. At Sunday morning check-in, our support team will be able to find that child under “other children you are listed as a guardian for”. Your efforts here are very much appreciated, as it will eliminate any wait that you would have incurred at check-in. For more information or if you have questions about KidCheck, please contact us at children@northview.org
