Kids Small Groups



Kid Connection

At Platte Woods Church, kids are always welcome in Worship! Those who take part in Kid Connection, will check-in through a secure, computerized system prior to entering their age-appropriate room. Check-in stations for all ages (birth-5th grade) are located on the main floor. Every family is assigned a family security code that both child and parent wear.


During the 9:30 hour, kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade will check in at the Kid Connection desk in the gathering space starting at 9:15. Families will worship together until approximately 9:45, when kids will be called to an exit door to be taken to their small group rooms. Parents will pick up their kids at their rooms at the conclusion of service.


During the 11:00 hour, kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade will meet in our Kid Central room. Check-in will begin at 10:45 and parents will pick up their kids at the conclusion of service.


Babies & Toddlers

Children 2 and younger are cared for in our crib nursery or toddler rooms filled with music, story time, and interactive play. The nursery will be open for both worship services each week and check-in begins 15 minutes prior to service on the lower level.



Preschoolers are invited to explore God’s Word in an interactive and engaging way at both 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Circle time, music, crafts and games are often a part of their experience. Check-in for this group begins 15 minutes prior to each worship service, and concludes at the end of each worship service.


K-3rd Grade

In our elementary environments, we desire to connect kids to God and one another through high energy worship, engaging Bible stories and small group activities.


Grades 4 & 5

We call it “Route 45!”  Preteens in 4th and 5th grades are at a pivotal time in their spiritual life when they often begin to ask questions about faith.  We want to offer them a fun and encouraging environment and show them how to apply truths from the Bible to their lives at school, with friends, and at home with their family.
