At Lakeside, we care about kids in a way that is both culturally-relevant and fun. Lakeside Kidz provides a safe environment that enables us to support families in the nurture of their children, as they are encouraged to explore a life following Jesus.
Age appropriate classes where children learn about Jesus in a fun social environment, and discover what it means to follow Him. Kids are encouraged to ask questions as they explore the Bible, develop their beliefs, and unpack what being a Christian is all about.
Because the safety of our children is so important, the morning starts with electronic check-in at our Registration Zone. We also ensure that our leaders have a current Working with Children Check.
Ages 6 months – 4 years.
Our well-equipped crèche area offers a safe and positive environment where a caring team look after our youngest children.
Kindy & Pre-Primary
Held in the Circuit Room, there are stories, arts and craft, songs, games, and a time to play. Children love joining this exciting and nurturing time where they hear Bible stories and simple Biblical truths.
Years 1 – 3
Held upstairs in the Hub, with both large group and small group activities. Kids enjoy games, engage with dynamic teaching, learn Bible verses, and have loads of fun! They also spend time praying together and encouraging one another in their journey to knowing Jesus better.
Years 4 – 6
FIRE: Foster, Inspire, Reach, Equip. Held upstairs in the Hub, kids are given regular challenges to put their knowledge of the Bible and Jesus into action with interactive games, teaching, and prayer that encourages spiritual growth.
