We’re big believers that kids are important and their program should reflect that. We run a number of different programs tailored specifically to make sure our kids lessons are engaging for all who attend and age appropriate so they can apply the teaching to their life. We also take child safety very seriously at Freedom and make sure all of our kids volunteers complete a series of required checks and training including maintaining a current Victorian Working With Children Check.
CRECHE (1-5 years)
Our creche program is for 1-5 year olds and runs for the entire duration of the service. Our creche director is a qualified child care assistant and creates weekly lessons for your child that include a range of free play activities, craft or colouring, songs and more. We ask that all parents include a snack and drink for your child.
KIDS (5-10 years)
Our primary aged program is a dynamic session which includes songs, teachings, activities and games which focus on different topics that are relevant to your child. Our kids team are passionate about seeing young people develop a solid foundation in their own personal faith journey and aim to provide your child with opportunities to discover their gifts. We believe in family worship at Freedom, so our kids program starts after the praise and worship (music) section in the main service.
ALIGHT SUNDAES (10-15 years)
We understand that the jump from kids church to big church can be a difficult transition for some young people, and is a big change in dynamics. We also understand that the pre teen and early youth years can be some of the most difficult times in a young persons life. Alight Sundaes is a fortnightly program designed to not only help your young teen adjust to a regular church service, but to also address real life issues faced by young people today. This program begins part way through the service after the praise and worship (music) section of the service.
