What is KidCheck?
KidCheck is Christ Church’s kids and youth check-in system. KidCheck’s advanced features equip us to keep your family safe and connected in our multi-venue church. Watch the tutorial videos and read on to learn more, or click the blue button below to dive right in.
We use KidCheck for many reasons, including:
- The ability to text you when your child needs you - whether you’re in worship, a Group, or serving somewhere.
- Assurance that no one picks up your child without your consent.
- The chance for you to add notes at check-in when your child doesn’t sleep well or loses a pet.
- Clear visual cues to help volunteers/staff identify allergies, medical information, alerts, and birthdays.
- The option to request more than one name tag for diaper bags and other belongings.
- The ability to access a copy of your pickup tag in the app to simplify pickup with multiple children or adults.
- Easily create and update a list of who can (and cannot) pick up your child(ren)
- Upload optional photos of children and guardians for added security
- Provide medical and allergy information and alerts
- No one sees you or your child’s information until you check-in to Christ Church
- KidCheck uses the same secure data technology as banks to keep your information safe
- KidCheck never asks for personal identification such as Social Security numbers, credit cards or banking information, and we never sell the information we do gather
- Speedy check-in - simply input your 10 digit phone number
- KidCheck is web-based, so you can create and access your account from anywhere
- Text message notifications when your child is checked in and out, or in case of emergency
