When you’re caring for a baby, you’re setting the stage for the relationship the parents and child will have with LifeKids for the next 11-12 years! That may sound a little overwhelming, but there are simple ways you can lay the foundation that LifeKids is a safe, nurturing environment where kids are known and loved. Watch this video and read below for tips!

Be intentional.
Don’t just let drop off and pick up happen. Look for ways you can take charge to put parents at ease and comfort kids. Here are some ways to get started.

When you attend to all of those details, you’re letting kids know LifeKids isn’t just babysitting. We are leading kids with love, consistency, and excellence so they can grow to know and trust in the love of Jesus as they grow.
