How will my child be integrated into their class?
Northplace Kids Champions aims to integrate children into general classrooms as much as possible. Each service, the Champions Coordinator will place your child in the level of integration that will set them up for the greatest level of success. Children may be fully integrated, partially integrated, or stay in the designated Champions classroom on any given service depending on the child’s individual plan, Dream Team availability, and classroom dynamic.
Where should I drop off and pick up my child?
Children who are part of Champions will always start and finish in the appropriate Champions classroom.
What does my child do in Champions while I am in service?
Your child will have the opportunity to experience worship, watch a Bible story, pray, have a snack, complete a craft and coloring sheet, and play with other kids. Their time in Champions is designed to be structured, purposeful, and fun.
Who is caring for my child?
The leaders in Champions love children deeply and have been trained for their roles by Northplace Church, but they are not professionals. These people offer their time freely and care for each child to the best of their abilities as members of the Northplace Dream Team.
What if my child gets sick or hurt while in Champions?
Safety is one of our primary focuses in Champions, but we know sometimes sickness and accidents happen. If your child appears to be sick, bleeding, or hurting him/herself, a Champions coordinator will page you immediately. Champions will not perform medical procedures on children or give medication to children.
What if my child is having behavioral problems?
If a child starts behaving inappropriately, Northplace Kids Champions Director will set up a meeting with you to discuss the behavior and develop a plan to encourage positive change. Northplace Kids Champions may also page you out of service if necessary.
How will I know I am being paged?
As part of Northplace Kids and Northplace Kids Champions, when you check your child in, you will receive a parent sticker with a unique three-digit code that matches your child’s sticker and code. If we need you for any reason, your three-digit code will appear on the screen in the main service.
Will my child ever be alone with an adult?
We stand with you in prioritizing safety and accountability. Northplace Kids and Northplace Kids Champions will always have two people in the classroom at all times, including during diaper changes.
What if my child no longer needs Champions services?
If your child becomes independent in his or her classroom and no longer needs Champions services, the Champions Coordinator will set up a meeting to discuss next steps for your child.
Set up an appointment with your Champions Coordinator by emailing the Northplace Kids Special Needs Director, Monique Bohlen at speci[email protected].

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:
We promise every time your child enters Champions, we will love and care for them well. Northplace Kids Champions wants both you and your entire family to have an incredible worship experience, and we are excited to partner with you to help make that happen.
