Our Preschool Ministry for ages 6 weeks - Kindergarten provides a safe and fun place where your young child will be introduced to Jesus in a way that they can understand. From the very beginning our volunteers begin to share these three basic truths with your child through songs, stories, games, and art each week they come to class:
God made me! God loves me! I can love God!

CHECK-IN:

All parents must check in their child using the computer system located at the tree close to the welcome desk. Your child’s nametag will tell you which classroom they are assigned to. Please check with a staff member at the desk if you feel there is an error with the room assignment.

 

CLASSROOMS:

Our classes are open every Sunday and Wednesday for regularly scheduled church services and special events as announced. We promote children birth through 2 year olds developmentally. Once your child is promoted to a 2-year-old class, they will promote yearly on Promotion Sunday in early August. For example, to be promoted to a 3 year old class, your child should turn 3 by September 1st. Children are assigned to a room based on their date of birth and physical development for infants.

 

DIAPER BAGS:

If your child is not fully potty-trained, please send a diaper bag that includes 2 or 3 diapers, a change of clothes, and a bottle or sippy cup according to your child’s needs. Please make sure to label ALL items including bottles, cups, and pacifiers.

 

SAYING GOODBYE:

In most cases, it is best to say a quick goodbye to your child and then leave the room. Separation anxiety is very common in this age group but usually lessens with time and consistent attendance. Our teachers will do their best to help your child transition, but if they are unable to help calm them down after 5-10 minutes we will notify you by texting your cell phone.

 

SNACKS:

Our classrooms are stocked with Cheerios, Goldfish, Bugles, Honeycombs, and Froot Loops for snacks. If your child needs a special snack due to food allergies, please send one in a container labeled with the child's name.

 

NURSING MOMS AREA:

There is a nursing moms room located close to the infant room.
