Let’s try to arrive at my room around 9:20am so you can have time to settle me in without being rushed.
When you sign me into my class, please give the caregivers any special instructions regarding feeding me or soothing me when I cry.
Please remember to sign-in when you drop me off and sign-out when you pick me up.
They also have security name tags for me that you can print out when you walk in the main door. Please stick the name part of the security tag on my back and keep the number for you. You will need to show my caregiver when you pick me up.
Remember to say “hi” and introduce both of us to my teacher or the classroom caregivers.
Please don’t leave without saying goodbye to me. A great big hug and kiss would be perfect!
If I am having problems with separation anxiety, inform the caregivers when you drop me off and let them try to comfort me once you have said goodbye. (You know me, I may try harder to get you to stay and pick me up)
Please pick me up as soon as you can after the meeting (or no later than 11:30 am). I may become anxious if I’m left when the other kids are gone
MOPS KIDS 101
MOPS KIDS is the childcare program your children (ages newborn - kindergarten, though home-schooled kids are welcome too) attend while you attend MOPS. The MOPS KIDS program allows your children to interact socially with other children while participating in games, Bible based lessons and stories, crafts, music, and physical play. Infants younger than 6 months may stay with you at the meeting. Please indicate which of your children will be enrolled in our MOPS KIDS program on the Registration Form.
MOPS KIDS Registration:
To help us better plan for your childcare needs, all moms must make a childcare reservation for their child(ren) by noon on the Wednesday prior to the meeting they plan to attend. Please include the name and age of your child(ren) when you RSVP on the MOPS signup genius.
Please drop off your child between 9:20 and 9:30am before heading to the MOPS meeting. PLEASE pick your child up promptly at 11:30am. If you have to pick your child up early, please let a MOPS KIDS worker know so they can try to discreetly bring your child out of the room as to not create distress with other children waiting for their mommies!
MOPS KIDS Caregivers:
We are blessed to have a wonderful group of MOPS KIDS workers who take loving care of our children! Please be sure to introduce yourself and give them a pat on the back whenever you see them. On rare occasion we may ask a Life Group to provide a “volunteer MOP” to leave the meeting and help out with MOPS KIDS if a teacher is unable to attend on that day, but we do our very best to avoid this. We are always looking for caregivers. If you know of anyone please contact Jennifer Stegmeier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not bring your child’s toys from home, with the exception of a security item to MOPS, as we cannot be responsible for those extra toys that become lost/broken.
If your child is in the infant or walker class (under 2), please bring a bag equipped with diapers, wipes, extra set of clothes, and sippy cup or bottle. Make sure to label all your child’s belongings with his/her first and last name.
If your child is in the older classroom and not yet potty trained, please consider placing your child in a pull-up during MOPS KIDS or bring a bag with a change of clothes in the event of an accident.
A registration form must be completed for each child and list any food allergies the child possesses. NO NUT OR GLUTEN PRODUCTS WILL BE PERMITTED IN ANY CLASSROOM. Only a light snack will be provided for children over 12 months of age, so please make sure they eat a good breakfast before coming to class. Non-MOPS KIDS snacks or meals should be consumed outside the child’s classroom to prevent other children from desiring their food or potential allergic reactions from other children.
The MOPS KIDS caregivers have been instructed to handle disciplinary situations as follows: When a child commits an offending behavior, such as hurting others, climbing or running in the classroom, a caregiver will ask them not to continue and attempt to redirect the child to another activity. If the problem persists, the child’s mother will be called so that she may take additional disciplinary action.
Thank you for your cooperation.
