All adult teachers and helpers are part of the Grace Church at Willow Valley family and have completed mandatory training and background checks to ensure the safety of your child.
Drop-off information: Please drop your children off between 8:30 and 8:55 and come in through the upstairs entrance. If your children attended on Monday, their nametags (and your copy of their name tag) will be on a table in the lobby. Their tags will have the room numbers where they are to be dropped off. If you have a preschooler in KEP camp for the week (pre-registered 4-year-olds only), their teacher will be waiting for them to the left of the stairwell in the lobby.
Pick-up information: Children may be picked up, in the room listed on their name tag, at approximately 12:00. For the safety of the children, as well as to expedite pick-up, we ask that parents please remain in the lobby and out of the hallway until the children are back in their rooms after the closing session in the sanctuary.
Preschoolers should be picked up downstairs at 11:50. After you pick up your preschoolers, proceed up the front stairs and remain in the lobby until it’s time to pick up older children. When all the children have been dismissed and are in their rooms, the hallway will be opened for parents. Please have your copy of your child’s nametag and return it to your child’s leader.
If someone else will be picking up your child at noon, give them your child’s name tag and notify your child’s leader at drop-off time. We will not release children to anyone without your permission.
If you need to pick your child up early, we ask that you do so no later than 11:30. In all cases of early pick-up, please proceed to the registration table and one of the leaders there will get your child(ren) and bring them to you. Thank you, in advance, for your patience and understanding during dismissal.
Food Allergies: If your child has allergies and you prefer to send a safe snack, please label the snack with your child’s name and let the leader know. Although we have no nuts in our snacks and strive for healthy and safe snack choices, they may have ingredients that have been processed in factories that also process nut products.
