HARBOR KEIKI

Keiki ministry now offered
Sundays, 8:30am service only
No reservations required
See safety guidelines below

Our keiki ministry meets every Sunday morning, for kids age 6 months to elementary. Harbor Keiki has been designed specifically to reach kids’ minds and hearts.

Each week we seek to convey the truth of God’s Word to children in a fun, relevant, kid-friendly manner! We play and learn biblical truths through age-appropriate lessons, games, songs and crafts in four different groups: nursery, preschool, early elementary, & older elementary.
While your keiki engage with God’s word, they will unlock a deeper understanding of who God is and the love he has for them as well as a deeper understanding of who God created them to be as kids.

For more information, please email Cyndi.

HARBOR KEIKI SAFETY GUIDELINES

Based on recommendations from the CDC, Hawai’i Department of Health, and state licensing agencies for childcare providers, Harbor Church will be implementing the following new safety guidelines and policies for Keiki Ministry. As state regulations are updated, these safety policies may change to reflect the new guidelines and families will be immediately notified.

Nursery

  • Masks: Our little babies/toddlers in the nursery room will not be required to wear masks.
  • Classes: The nursery room will only be allowed to accept 12 children or less per service.
  • RSVP: All babies/toddlers will need to be registered for a class prior to Sunday morning here. They will still need to check-in upon arriving at church to receive their name tag.
  • Cleaning: All toys & surfaces will be cleaned before church & in-between services. Hands of little ones will be sanitized upon entering & exiting the Nursery room. If a toy is placed in a child’s mouth, the toy will be immediately cleaned as well as their hands. If a child coughs or sneezes on a toy, it will also be immediately cleaned as well as the child’s hands.
  • Nursery Volunteers: Nursery volunteers will wear masks as much as possible. Their temperatures will be taken when they arrive at church and they may not have a temp above 100.3. They will also answer Harbor Church’s Covid-19 Health Screening Questionnaire each week. Teachers will sanitize their hands upon entering & exiting the nursery room and throughout their time in the nursery room.

Preschool

  • Masks: Preschoolers will not be required to wear masks at church nor in their preschool class.
  • Classes: Preschool classes will be kept to no more than 12 keiki. In the future, the preschool class may be divided into two class areas to accommodate more keiki should there be a need for it.
  • RSVP: All preschoolers will need to be registered for a class prior to Sunday morning above. They will still need to check-in upon arriving at church to receive their name tag.
  • Supplies: Any crayons, markers, or craft supplies used in class will be cleaned prior to use and in-between services before used again.
  • Cleaning: All tables, surfaces, & toys will be cleaned before church & in-between services. Students’ hands will be sanitized upon entering & exiting the Preschool class. If a toy is placed in a preschoolers mouth, the toy will be immediately cleaned as well as their hands. If a child coughs or sneezes on a toy, it will also be immediately cleaned as well as the child’s hands.
  • Preschool Teachers: All teachers will wear masks while keiki are in free play but will not wear masks while engaged in the teaching time. (Due to the noise level in the Keiki class area, it may be difficult for the keiki to hear their teachers if wearing a mask while teaching). Their temperatures will be taken when they arrive at church and they may not have a temp above 100.3. They will also answer Harbor Church’s Covid-19 Health Screening Questionnaire each week. Teachers will sanitize their hands upon entering & exiting the preschool class.

Elementary
