Transcript of Elementary - WPK Campus

We make every Sunday a WIN by kids and Team members in Parkway Kids achieving 3 principles:
1. Have Fun!
2. Be Safe.
3. Grow Spiritually.
How does Parkway Kids participate in the mission statement of Parkway Fellowship to
the lost at any cost and
grow them to maturity
the kids by creating a kid friendly environment through music, movement, and visual stimulation. Our Team plays a part in helping
grow them to maturity
by teaching key Biblical concepts, and by partnering with parents to continue providing instruction for spiritual growth.
Which of the five Biblical purposes of Fellowship, Discipleship, Ministry, Evangelism, and Worship does this ministry fulfill?
Kids at this age connect to each other by playing together during free-play time.
The children learn key spiritual concepts through a DVD or live presentation and engaging activities.
Our Team ministers to parents by providing safe and welcoming environments for children, allowing parents the opportunity to focus on what God is teaching them.
: Several times during the year, kids are given invite cards and encouraged to bring their friends on Sunday mornings.
: Kids sing praise songs during Large Group time every Sunday.

If a kid has not been picked up 15 minutes after the scheduled end time of an event, please bring the kid(s) to a Parkway Kids Staff Member at Preschool Check In.
General Reminders
Kids are not allowed to be unsupervised on campus.
If a kid has to use the restroom, they should use the facilities located in each of the classrooms without assistance.
Monitor the kid's environment and report any suspicious activity to a Parkway Kids Staff Member immediately.
Never be alone with a kid.
Social Media Guidelines
If There is an Excess Behavior Problem (i.e. disrespect, disruption, aggression, etc.)

First time:

Give a verbal warning that if the kid has to be corrected one more time they will lose their free-play time at the end of class. When doing this be sure to get down on the kid's level and look into their eyes and speak to them in a loving and calm manner.
Second time:

Loss of free-play time at the end of class.
Third time:
The Guide needs to make the parents aware of the situation when they come pick up the kid, and report the incident to a Parkway Kids Staff Member.
Fourth time:
A Parkway Kids Staff Member has a conversation with the kid and the parents together.
Fifth time:

The kid sits out of Sunday programming for 2 weeks.
Immediately contact a Parkway Kids Staff Member if a kid is physically aggressive with another kid.
Press "1" on the phone in each of the classrooms in order to contact a Parkway Kids Staff Member.
If a Kid Becomes Ill
If a child has a runny nose (green in color), persistent cough, fever, or rash, we will ask the parent to keep their kid with them. If you notice this during the service times please notify a Parkway Kids staff member and we will contact the parent.
If you notice a child is sick during check-in, please tell the parent dropping off the following: "Your child looks like they might not be feeling well. If you could give me just a minute, I would like one of our Parkway Kids Staff Members to make sure your child is well enough to come and play with the other children in our class today. Thank you"
If a kid begins vomiting, and adult leader should escort the kids to the restroom away from the other students while remaining calm and comforting. Use the phone in the room to contact a Parkway Kids Staff Member and alert them to the situation. The Parkway Kids Staff Member will bring the appropriate cleaning supplies and handle contacting the parent/guardian.
If a Kid Becomes Injured
Minor Injuries

Most can be treated with a little tender loving care, a cool cloth and a Band-Aid.
Small First Aid kits are available in each room in the tech booth.
You CANNOT treat with any medication of any kind( i.e. alcohol cleaning wipes, antibiotic cream, etc.)
When a kid is treated, please complete an "Ouch Report" and have a Parkway Kids Staff Member sign the report before the kid is picked up. When the parent arrives, please let them know what happened and ask them to sign the "Ouch Report". The parent then receives the copy of the "Ouch Report" labeled "Parent".
A staff member will follow up with the parent, if necessary, the following week.
It is important to remember that we are not authorized to dispense any over the counter or prescription medications.

In the event a kid needs more attention than we can provide, please notify a Parkway Kids Staff Member by using the phone in the classroom, and the parent will be notified.
Emergency Procedure
As soon as the Fire Alarm sounds, IMMEDIATELY follow evacuation procedures.
Take the clipboard by the door and the emergency kit, and prepare the class to evacuate.

After all kids have been counted, check under any furniture, bathrooms, or other areas where a kid could hide.
Walk your kids to the area designated on the evacuation plan posted next to your door.
Once all leaders have arrived, if possible, have your kids sit on the ground and count them to make sure that every kid is accounted for.
