PARENT FAQS

It’s my child’s first time attending. How will they know where to go/what to do?

We are so excited that you are going to visit us! If this is your child's first time with us, you can visit one of our Information Desks to fill out a guest or new member form. Once you complete the form, we will assign your child to a class and walk them to their new room! Next week you will be able to check-in at one of our GFBC Kids kiosks. 

How do I check-in my child?

Checking in is so easy! Visit one of our kiosks, type in your 10-digit number and receive a printed name tag for your child and a security label for you. If you have any issues, visit our information desk and one of our serve team members will assist you. 

What is the check-out process?

When you are picking up your child, please present your security label to the serve team member. Only the adult with the security label will be allowed to pick up the child. In the event the security label cannot be presented, you must obtain permission from a Preschool Director or Children's Minister to pick up your child.

How can I be part of the Serve Team?

If you are interested in serving, complete the form below.
