We are so glad that you have chosen to visit Shades. We look forward to having your children with us and teaching them about Jesus! If you are visiting us on Sunday morning for the first time, please check-in at the Welcome Desk on the first floor of the Worship Center.

Check-In and Security

The Preschool Staff at Shades cares about your child's safety. Each of our adult volunteers goes through a screening process to ensure your child's safety while at church. We strive to protect your child to the best of our ability while they are under our care. One way we care for your child is by the use of a computer check-in system.

This check-in system allows us to carefully monitor who picks up your child from his or her classroom. Each time a child checks in, a randomly generated four character code is printed on the child's name tag and must be matched with the corresponding ticket in order for the child to picked up from the classroom.

Our Programs

We offer many different activities during the week and year that we would love to have you join!
