Hope Kids

Welcome to Hope Kids

Parents, the Word God says that you are the primary spiritual leaders in your kids’ lives. It’s our mission at Hope Kids to assist you in discipling your kids to know and love Jesus.

This page is here to help you see our vision, and to provide some resources that we believe will help you as you seek to lead your family at home. If you have any questions please reach out to our team at HopeKids@HopeOakville.ca. We are praying for you, we love you, and we hope to see you soon!

Hope Kids Classes

New to Hope Kids?

Please come to our Hope Kids Welcome Desk located in the church lobby and our team will be happy to help you check in your children and explain how it all works.

Who Can attend Hope Kids

  • Children from 4 weeks old to grade 5 are welcome.
  • Each school grade attends its own classroom.

Which Hope Kids Classes are Available?

  • All our classrooms from Nursery to Grade 5 are available during the 8:30 and 10:15 AM services.
  • During the 12 noon service, only our PreKindergarten to Grade 5 classrooms are open.

What Time Does Hope Kids Start?

Our teaching begins at the start of each service - 8:30 AM, 10:15 AM and 12:00 PM.  Therefore, we strongly recommend parents arrive 30 to 20 minutes prior to the start of the service so that their child is in the classroom on time and does not miss any of the worship and teaching.

Where Do I Go to Check In My Child?

If you have attended our church before and we have your child’s information in our database you are able to print off your child’s name tags and pick up tags by using the Self-Check-in stations which are available in the Hope Kids area. 

We have self-check-in stations in the mezzanine, toddler ramp area, and walkers’ classroom. Parents just need to type in their phone number and select their child’s name then click the check-in button located at the bottom right-hand corner.

Classroom Capacities

Our desire is to never turn a child away.  However, please note that each Hope Kids classroom has a child-to-worker ratio capacity set so when a classroom is full our Self-Check-in station will inform you and will not print a name tag.  Remember to come early to get your child checked in.

Birth - Age 3

Our goal in this ministry is to help children and families understand that Jesus needs to be the foundation for life from their earliest days. Children will see the love of Christ gently modeled through our Hope Kids Volunteers who care for their needs by simply sharing God’s Word through the safe, fun environment in which they play and learn.
