You will be welcomed at the door by our new family check in team & shown to your class. Our classrooms are clean & safe & our volunteers are trained & all have current WWCCs. We run a program to empower the next generation rather than just providing care. New children will be offered a VIP lanyard so our volunteers can ensure their first time is positive.

We use a APP notification system to communicate directly between the classrooms and the auditorium. We will provide a code reference on check in that is displayed in the main auditorium if you are required to attend a classroom.
