Early Childhood (6 weeks – PreK):
Our Early Childhood ministry 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 basic truths with your child through songs, stories, games and art each week they come to class: God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
All parents must check in their child using the computer system at the check in 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 in the room assignment.
Our classes are open every Sunday and Wednesday for regularly scheduled church services and special events as announced. Children who have turned 4 by August 31st will transition to Kidz Place on Promotion Sunday in early August. Each classroom is designated with a color and children are assigned to a room based on their date of birth and physical development for infants.
If your child is not fully potty trained, please send a diaper bag that includes two or three 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 & pacifiers.
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 them calm down after 5-10 minutes we will notify you by texting your cell phone.
Our classrooms are stocked with Cheerios, Ritz Crackers and Goldfish 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.
