More about BT KIDS! for Parents/Guardians:

  • All BT KIDS! volunteers are interviewed, background checked and are given regular trainings by BT KIDS! leadership.
  • A nurse is always on-call during all BT KIDS! services.
  • All children are given nametags with a security code at check-in. The parent will be given a parent tag with the child's security code. In case parents are needed during a service, the security code is shown on the electronic display board in the 17 Smith Street sanctuary. If parents are sitting in overflow areas, we ask that they please keep their cell phone on vibrate as we will call/text if parents are needed.
  • All children must be dropped off and picked up by a parent/guardian or sibling/relative (16 years of age or older). For dismissal, the security tag MUST be presented before the child can leave with the parent/guardian or sibling/relative.
