There are several things out there but I would start with three. 1. Is the Kidology Cookbook that walks you through how to set up a Children's Church from start to finish. Second just make the Bible exciting and fun when teaching it. Last no dead time. This means transitions from singing to speaking, game time or whatever you're doing no wasted time or you lose control of the kids. I started off using a DVD player several years ago then moved to media shout on computer but now we use propresenter across the board for preschool children youth and adults. This allows for easy set up and smooth transitions between you segments of worship. that's where I'd begin. Check in and checkout can be done w bracelets, stickers or computer check in. One of the better check in systems is KidCheck. For my experience this works for crowds ranging from 20-150 children. You can run with less volunteers than this but you should always at least have two volunteers and then close to one volunteer for every 10 kids. I hope this helps! Praying for you!
