Parkwood Kids exists to help kids and families
find hope in the person of Jesus and find home in his family. 

Our philosophy is that the church and family can do more together than either one can do alone. We want to work strategically, partner intentionally, and program appropriately,
so that we can positively influence your child’s future. To support you, we’ve created gatherings that are geared to serving kids, others that are about equipping parents,
and some that are meant to engage and equip families together.

Check out our calendar or contact us for more information about how we partner with families.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Parkwood Kids IS BACK!

The safety of our kids and volunteers has always been our number one concern, but COVID-19 encouraged us to take another look at our protocols. Our team has been hard at work getting new new health and safety protocols in place to protect our kids and volunteers, and now that they're in place, we're so excited to be up and running again!

Weekly pre-registration is required for all Kids' events.  You can find out more info about our programs & protocols and register your kids at the buttons below.

What to Expect

SUNDAYS @ 9AM

Building safe and healthy community starts early.

Hey Moms!
We  have a dedicated space just for you. The Moms Room is located inside our nursery (just ask a volunteer to direct you). It has comfortable chairs, a changing station, a refrigerator, and audio feed from the service so you won’t miss a thing! To respect everyone’s privacy, this room is for women only. There are additional baby changing stations in our three main washrooms, both male and female.

Preschool | ages 3-SK

We have amazing parents, grandparents, teenagers, and volunteers of all ages taking turns to show love and care to our preschoolers each Sunday.  In addition to helping kids feel safe and make friends, our teams are here to support each child's faith journey by teaching weekly Bible stories and facilitating games and activities to reinforce the weekly teachings. And, of course, there's always room for free play and snacks!   Check-in begins 15 minutes before gatherings (required for all children being dropped off), and classroom doors open 15 minutes before gatherings.
