Freedom Tots is for children from birth up to their fourth birthday. For the smaller ones there is also the option of taking your child into the parents’ room, where you can also continue to enjoy the main service.
In our parents’ room there are nappy changing facilities, and high chairs available, should your child be ready for an early lunch!
In Freedom Tots, we ask that parents with children under 18 months old stay with their child.
The Freedom Tots team leader is Serena de Gruchy and together with the team, she helps our children to build foundations of faith through a range of fun activities.
Tots is all about making friends, stories, playing, toys and songs, as we learn through Bible stories and simple worship.
What to expect when you arrive
When you arrive at Freedom Church on a Sunday morning, a team member will register your child before the service starts at the kids registration table outside the hall. The team member will give you a numbered registration card. Please keep this card safe, as you will be asked to return it when you collect your child.
If you arrive after pre-registration closes, there will be another opportunity to register when the children go out to their separate groups during the service.
Should your child need you during the service, a message will be displayed on screen in the main meeting, giving your child’s number and group name. You should then go to the group that your child is attending.
Joining Freedom Kids
If your child is regularly attending Freedom Kids, we will ask you to complete a registration form, so that we have some essential information about your child, such as emergency contact details, information about medical conditions or allergies.
We want your child to have a great time in Freedom Kids, and we want them to be safe and happy during their time with us.
We ensure that all our Freedom Kids team members are DBS checked, we have trained first aiders on team, and everyone works to our in-house guidelines, to help us ensure that all the children attending are kept safe and secure. If you’d like to see a copy of our guidelines please get in touch with our Youth & Kids Pastor, Sarah Hawthornthwaite.
