Does it cost money to play?

Our Kidway play area is free to use during the hours posted. 

When you arrive on Sunday morning for Kidway, you will check your children in at the Kidway Check-In Station. We use Gateway Community as our secure children’s check-in system that will allow Gateway to provide a safe, simple, and quick check-in and check-out process for our Sunday school program. See a check-in assistant at the nursery or Kidway desk when you arrive to set up your profile. Once you have checked in, a volunteer will help guide you to the class for your child’s age.

Can I bring food and drinks into the Kidway play area?

Gum, candy, food or drinks are not permitted. You are welcome to use the cafe area tables and chairs for snacks and drinks. Please clean up after yourself.

Are there restrooms and water nearby?

Restrooms and a water fountain are located down the hall you entered when you arrived. 

Are private parties available at the Kidway play area?

At this time, we are not hosting private parties.

Where is the Kidway play area located?

The Kidway Indoor play area is located at Gateway Church (9555 County Road 9, Findlay, OH). If you visit during the week, park in the back of the church and enter through the office doors. Go down that hallway and you will see the play area to the right once you get to the end of the hall.

Is there a place to eat inside the church?

We have a few tables and chairs available for you to use in our cafe area across from the play area. If you use the cafe area, please clean up after yourself before you leave. 


Come see all the resources we have available at each campus. There are books for you and your kids that you can borrow.
