WELCOME TO THE PRESCHOOL MINISTRY PAGE!
We believe that families are the core of spiritual development. It is our job to come alongside parents and provide tools, tips and opportunities to encourage spiritual development at home.
We encourage children at a very young age to begin a life-long, joyous relationship with Jesus Christ. We teach basic biblical truths in ways their little hearts can understand within a safe and loving environment.
Nursery (birth through 1 year)
Babies grow so fast ... and we're ready to meet the needs each new stage of development brings. As babies mature, they are moved to a new room with toys and furnishings that most closely match their new abilities and needs. We strive to make your baby as comfortable as possible, ad encourage you to keep updating us with detailed care instructions such as nap and feeding preferences.
Preschool (2 year through Pre-K)
Each week, these little learners are taught a new truth about God's creation, His love and His desire for their lives. Bible lessons are taught repetitively through stories, music, crafts and activities.
What to bring
Please have your child's personal belongings clearly marked with his/her full name. Diaper bags should contain two to three diapers/pull ups, wipes, a change of clothes in case of an accident, a bottle/sippy cup of their preferred drink. Parents should also administer any medications or creams/ointments.
What to tell us
Tell us anything that will make your child feel more comfortable.
*Please notify caregivers when potty training. Even if your child is still wearing diapers, we'll be glad to help them along
*Allergies: During check-in, inform the teacher of your child's allergies so it may be noted.
Feedings and snacks
Please make sure your child has been fed his/her spoon-fed food before arriving at church. Time and number of hands do not allow us to feed children their meals. We offer animal crackers, Cheerios and Goldfish to those children who are developmentally ready to chew.
Check-in and check-out process
Upon arrival, you will be given a pager so that you may be located in case of need.
In an attempt to keep the children healthy, all changing surfaces are disinfected after each diaper change, all toys are washed and pacifiers and bottles are labeled with the owner's name to prevent "sharing."
