INFANTS, TODDLERS & PRESCHOOLERS

 

We recognize the importance of laying a strong foundation for faith. Through loving, caring relationships with parents and teachers, babies and toddlers begin their faith journey. It is our desire to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our little ones to learn age-appropriate biblical truths about God, Jesus, the Bible, church, family, self, and world.

Bible Study for Preschoolers
Sundays | 9:00 a.m.

Sunday morning Bible study classes, taught at an age-appropriate level, are available for preschool-aged children and led by adults that are gifted and trained to teach children.

Worship Care
Sundays | 10:15 – 11:45 a.m.
Wednesdays | 5:30 – 8 p.m.

While parents attend worship, Babies – Preschool 3s also experience Bible truths through songs, stories, and center play.

When you arrive at our Welcome Center inside the nursery suite, a greeter will guide you through the check-in process. To insure your child’s safety, we use a sticker system that connects each child with their parent or caregiver. You may also receive a pager that vibrates should we need you during your child’s stay. Please give detailed instructions to help our nursery leaders best care for your child.

A few things you can do to help us care for your baby or toddler:
* Please label everything you bring, especially bags, bottles, cups, and pacifiers.
* During check-in, give us instructions regarding allergies, naps, feeding times, etc.
* Please bring a sufficient supply of bottles, diapers and extra clothing.

Our goal is to maintain a healthy environment where children are not exposed to illnesses. Please let your children recover at home if they are contagious, or have had any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours:
* Fever, vomiting, or diarrhea
* Greenish, thick runny nose
* Discharge from eyes
* Rash associated with viral or bacterial infection
* Sneezing, coughing, or sore throat

They participate in what God is doing by praying, giving, and serving.
