We Want Your Kids to Love Church

As a LifeKids team, our heart is to partner with families to see each child make a Jesus-sized difference with their life! Our teams provide safe, welcoming environments where children ages Zero-Grade Five can learn and grow in their faith together through fun, age-appropriate teaching, LifeGroups, and activities.

Nursery (0-2)

We love babies! While parents enjoy the weekend service, they can rest assured that their babies are receiving personal care in a safe and nurturing environment. Our team creates a positive church experience that introduces infants to the love of Jesus.

Preschool (2-3)

Preschoolers love to learn, and our classrooms provide interactive learning experiences in a colourful and engaging atmosphere! From illustrated lessons to small group activities, preschoolers learn about Jesus and the Bible in bite-sized pieces each week.

KJr. Lifekids (4-5)

Kindergarteners love to learn, and our classrooms provide interactive learning experiences in a colorful and engaging atmosphere! From songs to interactive lessons, kindergarteners learn about Jesus and the Bible in bite-sized pieces each week.

Grades 1-5

In our elementary environments, our goal is to help kids learn about Jesus and build relationships with others through object lessons, engaging Bible stories, and LifeGroups.

COVID-19

Guidance

• Masks for Kids K4 and up are to be worn while indoors at Lifecentre.
• Pastors/Volunteers will wear masks indoors, at all times.
• Due to room capacity limits, pre-registering your child is essential.
• Room capacity is capped as kids don’t socially distance properly at all times.

Masks

Students K4 to 12 are required to wear non-medical masks indoors regardless of vaccination status. Kids and Students must wear masks indoors at Lifecentre, including in hallways and during classes. Kids and Students are not required to wear masks outdoors, if they can maintain physical distancing.

Registration

Before coming to church, this simple Self-Screening tool is helpful for parents to make the best decision possible for their child: https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-topics/covid-19-and-schools.aspx

Vaccinations & Negative Tests

Please know, if any Lifecentre Pastors/Volunteers are showing COVID symptoms, or had a high risk exposure to COVID,  they will not serve until receiving a negative COVID test result. This might adversely affect ministry on any given Sunday. If this occurs, we do apologize in advance. Ensuring your child is safe, to the utmost of our ability, remains our heart and aim at Lifecentre. 

 

If your child is not vaccinated (under twelve) and is exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID-19 and is considered a high-risk contact, they will be required to isolate for ten days as directed by Ottawa Public Health. Lifecentre will work with Ottawa Public Health and follow their guidance. If your child is fully vaccinated (12 and up) and is exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID-19, they do not need to self-isolate as long as they do not have symptoms. To date, Provinces where vaccine passports are in use, Houses of Worship are not included in this guidance/mandate. Lifecentre requires all volunteers ministering to children under 18 to be double vaccinated or show a negative COVID test prior to serving. We will continue to review the Province’s guidance with our Staff and Pastor’s Council.

FAQ

Check-In (Grades 1-5)

Your child is important to us. On your first visit, we need the following personal information: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our Lifecentre database to help maintain our secure check-in system.

Safety

Your child’s safety is our first priority. All LifeKids volunteers complete our Plan to Protect Course and pass a background check prior to serving in our environments. We also use a security tag system for child check-in and pick-up, and a paging system for parents/guardians in case we need to reach you during the Worship Experience.
