FAQ for Training Ground Fall 2020

We take the health and safety of your child in Training Ground very seriously. In light of COVID-19, we wanted to share the changes we are making so you can make an educated decision about your child’s return to kid’s ministry. We are committed to taking all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while shepherding your child’s heart during their time with us. We can’t wait until everyone is able to join us again during mid-week ministries, but we realize there are many factors that play into your family’s decision to return. Here are the current answers to questions you might have.

Will volunteers be screened before serving in a classroom with children?

Yes, all volunteers will go through a mandatory health screening before entering the kid’s area, including temperature checks. They will also be required to wash their hands with soap and water before entering their classroom.

Will my child’s teacher wear a mask?
  • Given the continued spread of COVID in our community, and our desire to do all we can to protect the health of our teachers and kids, we are now requiring all of our teachers to wear a face covering when serving.
  • However, we know that there will be times when teachers will need to remove their face coverings in order to best care for and communicate with the young children in our classrooms. We trust our volunteers to be safe while keeping ministry to the hearts of the kids their top priority.
  • Reading stories and giving instructions are some examples of when teachers might remove their face coverings, so that the children can clearly understand what is being said.
Will there be any changes to the kiosk check-in process?

Our kiosks will be spaced and stocked with hand sanitizer to allow families to check themselves in as normal.

Can our whole family go together to drop off or pick up our children from their classes?

We are asking that only one person attend the child to reduce crowding in our hallways.

Will children be screened before entering classrooms?
  • Parents will be asked two screening questions about their family’s health as part of the check-in process. We will not be doing temperature checks on children.
  • Each child will have their hands sanitized as they enter the classroom.
Will the class ratios and capacities be the same?

We are reducing both ratios and capacities in each classroom until further notice.

Will my child be interacting with other children in multiple classrooms while they are in kid’s ministry?

We are limiting movement of the classes as much as possible. We are asking that parents take their children to the restroom prior to check-in, but children will still be taken to the restroom during the service if needed.

Will my child be eating snacks during their time in kid’s ministry?

With the exception of our infants that need to drink a bottle during their time with us, we will not be providing goldfish or having special snacks. Please make sure your child has eaten before dropping them off in their classroom.

Do I need to register my child(ren) for Training Ground?

Yes, please. In order to be well prepared, we are asking that you register any children that you intend to drop off in Training Ground. We close our registrations 48 hours prior to the event.

What can I do to help?
  • Thank you for asking! If any member of your household has been ill within 48 hours prior to attending Training Ground (including vomiting, diarrhea, discolored mucus, cough, or a temperature greater than 99.9), please keep your child at home. This also applies if anyone in your household has been exposed to COVID-19 in the past two weeks. Also, make sure they eat prior (no snacks), take them to the bathroom before drop off, use a pull-up if they are potty training, and wash their hands before dropping them off.
  • Be patient with us. Check-in will take a little longer as we assess the health of each child before entering the classroom.
  • You can join our Training Ground Team! For more information, please email trainingground@plano.watermark.org.
