Desert View Kids is a place for children, birth through 4th grade, to learn about our amazing God and how much He loves them! We provide fun, age-appropriate activities to engage kids and meet them where they are at on their journey to becoming life-long disciples of Christ. Our staff and volunteer leaders provide a safe, welcoming environment where kids experience belonging and feel known. We strive to partner with you as parents in your challenging role as the primary disciple-makers in your child’s life. Our ultimate goal is that all of our kids would grow to Live for God, Love each other, and Build God’s Kingdom!
Desert View Kids Explorers
Birth - Age 4 (& 5's not yet in Kindergarten)
Our three nursery classrooms (Babies, Toddlers, 2 Year Olds) are safe, fun environments for our little explorers to experience the love of God.
We have a classroom for potty-trained three year olds and another for our 4’s and 5’s who are not yet in Kindergarten. Both classes participate in directed free play, music, crafts, and games that reinforce the Bible story and strive to engage the sense of wonder that God has placed in our preschoolers.
Kindergarten - 4th Grade
Our elementary program is designed to not only teach our kids about God and His amazing Word, but also to engage them in a way that will create true heart change. Our curriculum takes the kids through the Bible every year, highlighting different stories over a three-year cycle.
Kids View Theater is our fun, high-energy, large group worship experience. Our Kids View Worship Team leads the kids in interactive worship and our engaging, large group leaders use their creativity to draw the kids into our Bible story every week.
Our small groups are divided by grade level and our incredible, small group leaders involve the kids in a variety of fun activities to reinforce and go deeper with the large group lesson. They also lead a time of interactive prayer to draw the kids closer to God and to each other.
Desert View Courageous Kids
Courageous Kids is our ministry to kids with special needs. We consider it an incredible privilege to minister to your child. Our goal is to provide a safe, caring environment where your child will have fun and will learn how much they are loved by our amazing God! We ask that you please contact our Director of Children’s Ministry, Dawn Hendricks, prior to bringing your child for the first time, so that we can assess how to best meet your child’s needs and provide a wonderful experience for them!
We have a variety of special events throughout the year, such as Vacation Bible School, the Fall Festival and Family Fun Nights. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our kids and families to have fun together, build community, and reach out to their neighbors.

COVID -19 Mitigation Measures
The health and safety of our kids and volunteers is a priority as we meet together during this season of COVID-19. We have the following measures in place to make Desert View Kids is as safe as possible:
1. We strongly encourage all volunteers and everyone kindergarten and older, to wear masks in the buildings. We have disposable, child and adult sized masks available if you need one.
2. We have enhanced cleaning in our buildings, classrooms, and across all surfaces. All classroom surfaces and toys are disinfected during the week.
3. We have hand sanitizer stations in our lobbies and sanitizer is available in every classroom.
4. Grade School room set-up and activities have been adjusted for social distancing.
**Nursery/Toddler/2's Parents - please put only essential items (diaper, wipes, bottle/cup, pacifier) in a labeled, ziplock bag. This will eliminate the need for volunteers to search through diaper bags for items. If you forget, we will have bags available at drop off for you to transfer items.
Safety & Security
All of our Desert View Kids’ Volunteers are background and referenced checked before they serve with our kids. We use the KidCheck Secure Check-In System to simplify the check-in and pick-up process and to ensure that no one can pick up your child without your consent. If you are visiting Desert View for the first time, please stop by our Kids’ Check-In Desk and we would love to assist you with creating an account.
