In the ideal setup it is meant to begin outside of the consecrated church proper. That usually means in a vestibule or on the steps of the church outside. Then the child is led into the Baptistry which can be accessed without entry to the church, and then after Baptism out into the church itself.

The symbolism is that the child is before Baptism, excluded from the church, then after suitable preparation led to the font of Baptism, then sanctified and a member of the Church, can enter into the church itself.

The actual setup depends on the church building and how it is setup.
