Lifepoint Kids Move Up Days
August 3rd and 10th, 2014
This guide explains the process of transitioning kids to different grades, groups, and rooms for the new school year. Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the changes that pertain to your children.
Babies and Toddlers
Our rooms are arranged from 0-9 months, 9-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-2.5 years, and 2.5-3 years. You may bring your children to the room corresponding to their age. As your infants through 2 year olds grow, they will continue to move up the next room at the age indicated. However, if your child turns 3, they will continue to stay in the 2.5-3’s group. We will move those children together into the next group in August of 2015. Please note the new room locations on the map on the back of this page.
Due to our growth in Lifepoint Kids, the Mother/Infant room will no longer be available. Mothers are welcome to use the 0-9 month room for nursing until the building expansion is complete, at which time there will be a dedicated room in the rear of the auditorium.
BigTime Preschool – Ages 3-5
Kids moving up to Kindergarten in 2014 may go directly to the JumpCity school age room, where a small group leader will welcome them. Children born prior to January 1st, 2011 will join a small group in BigTime. Children born between January 1st, 2011 and June 30th, 2011 will now have their own group and meet in Preschool Room 127 next to BigTime. All children will stay in the same small group for the next year. This allows for the children and leaders to build better relationships.
Jump City School Age – K-3rd Grade
JumpCity will host children entering Kindergarten through 3rd grade this Fall. Small groups are based on grade and gender; for example, Kindergarten boys will form one small group. Generally two leaders host your child’s small group at each service on a bi-weekly rotation. We hope this enables both you and your children to get to know their small group leaders. For pick-up, please enter the first JumpCity door in the Lifepoint Kids hallway, locate your child in their small group, and bring your child with his or her belongings to the exit door. Our volunteers will check security tags at that time.
4th – 5th Grade
The 4th and 5th graders will meet in the “Curtain Room” located in the Cafe. As a larger, multi-grade group, we hope these kids can begin to form friendships that will carry them into Middle School. Security tags will continue to be used to pick up students from this room.
LifeGroup for students moving to 6th grade begins August 24th at 9:30am in the Meeting Room. Parents and students are encouraged to attend group together that day to enjoy breakfast and meet your group leaders. Students may attend worship gatherings with their parents until group begins.
