Registrations open at 8:30am where we have fun activities available for your children.
The programme starts at 9am. Please make sure your child is there, as they don't like to miss out on any fun!
You will be greeted by our friendly volunteers who will guide you through the process. On your first day, you will receive your Registration Pack. This will include your child's bar code and instructions on the sign-in and sign-out process. Our bar codes are designed to ensure safety for all our children in our care and to speed up the drop off and collection times. Your child's safety is our priority, you WILL NEED these bar codes to sign your child in and out so please look after them.
All children must be promptly collected from King's Club at 12:30pm by an authorised adult, as nominated on the registration form. Please have your barcodes ready to make this process more streamlined.
Every child will need a barcode or the adult collecting them will need to have proof of ID if the barcode has been lost.
While our sign in/out system is quick and efficient, it can get quite busy during these times. Your patience whilst our volunteer staff undertake the important task of ensuring that all children are collected by an authorised adult will be appreciated.
This is not a problem, but it requires a different process. Please report to the front office upon arrival at the church. You will be guided through our process.
If your child is to be collected by someone other than whom you've nominated, you can take a photo of your barcode with your smartphone and send it to whom you wish to give authority to collect your child. Please notify us before pick up time on 9448 7018 of this change to avoid delays in the sign out queue.
Please come in comfy casual clothes and sensible shoes. It is suggested that your child brings a jumper as some of the games are held outside and it can get a bit cold at this time of the year. Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with their name. Unless it is for a medical reason, please do not send your child to Kings Club with a water bottle or a backpack as we do not have the facilities to store these. We do ensure your child is well catered for throughout the morning. Please leave valuables at home in case they get lost or damaged.
Kings Club is a fantastic morning filled with fun, games, interactive Bible teaching, singing, dancing, arts, crafts, recreational activities and of course a tasty morning tea! Let's just say it is a busy, energy soaked and packed with great learning all morning.
We love having parents stick around at Kings Club! We work hard to ensure we recruit enough leaders and volunteers to create a safe, well-supervised environment for your child, but we welcome all parents to stay behind in our cafe to enjoy barista coffees and delicious treats while you watch your kids enjoy the program. We have staff and church volunteers available in the cafe to serve you and we'd love you to stick around for a chat! Stay as long as you like, or drop your children off and run - it's completely up to you!
Yes! At morning tea, children will be given a light snack. Sweet treats are served to parents in our café. Please note we are a nut aware environment and provide accordingly.
We do our utmost to be inclusive of all our children visiting King's Club. If your child does have food allergies that we cannot cater for we will discuss this with you.
We have a large but carefully selected team of wonderful volunteers who primarily come from our North Beach Baptist Church community. We adhere to a strict screening programme to ensure that all adults working with children have been cleared to do so. The screening process includes (where applicable) National Police Clearances, referee checks and a current Working with Children Check card.
We, at North Beach Baptist Church, understand the importance of creating a caring and safe environment for your children, thereby making it easier for you to entrust your children to us during King's Club. A trained First Aid volunteer is on duty for the duration of King's Club during the daytime programme.
You must discuss any medical conditions, asthma puffers and Epipens noted on the registration form with our First Aid volunteer before signing in your child on your child's first day at King's Club.
If your child requires an Epipen or a puffer, this isn't a problem, please contact the church office as we have strict legal requirements for these items that we have to adhere to.
There is a one off $15 administration fee per child for the week. We kindly ask you pay within 5 days of registering to secure your spot in the program.

Sea Stars Playgroup runs every Thursday morning throughout the school term, from 9:30am to 11:30am.
We welcome families with children aged 0-5 years. Sea Stars aims to provide a caring, nurturing and structured environment where children have the opportunity to interact with others and develop social skills, as well as participate in activities that will help prepare them for kindergarten. Each week children participate in singing, story time and a special craft activity, as well as plenty of free play. Mums have the opportunity to socialise and share morning tea and a cuppa.
If you would like more information about our Stars playgroup or would like to speak to someone about it click here.
A supervised crèche is available for both of our services on Sundays.
A supervised crèche operates every Sunday morning for babies up to 23 months old. Parents leaving children in the crèche need to sign in and ensure the volunteers are aware of any special requirements. If you are a regular attendee you will be asked to fill in a registration form for your child, alerting us of any medical or other important information. Parents are encouraged to put themselves on the supervision roster once a term. The crèche opens at 8:20am and 10:30am on a Sunday morning and will be supervised until the conclusion of the church service.
Since there are a lot of young families who attend our Sunday night service, there is a supervised crèche that runs during the service. For the slightly older children (up to early primariy school), one of the crèche supervisors share a Bible story, sometimes a song and a simple craft activity with them. The Sunday school lesson only runs though the school term.
Prime Time is a walking group for retirees and others in that age bracket. The group provides a social environment to connect with other and to invite our friends and neighbours along to. Walks are fortnightly on Mondays and often meet at the church building to car pool to another location. In cooler months the group meets in the mornings and in the warmer months in the evenings. Recent highlights include lunch at Walyunga, the tulips at Areluen, Matilda Bay, and the nearby ocean front and sunsets. Their prayer is for more people to join the walks and form close links with each other and the church community.
For more information about Prime Time please contact the Church Office.
