Nursery: Our purpose is to glorify God by sharing the love of Jesus with preschoolers and their families. By the time our kids enter Kindergarten, we want them to understand that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their best friend forever. Just as children are a rich heritage for both parents and the body of Christ, parents and members of the body play essential roles in making God’s love real to little children. It is our desire to come alongside parents in nurturing the faith of their children. Our responsibility is to prayerfully model and teach truth.
- Infant Nursery (birth to crawling): Loving care and prayer characterize this room. Infants are cuddled, played with and rocked. This nursery offers bassinets, infant swings, age-appropriate toys and safe space for exploration. Worship music is played throughout the morning and a mother’s nursing area is provided. The caregiver/infant ratio is 1:3.
- Crawler Nursery (crawling to walking): This nursery provides nap rooms, swings, age-appropriate toys and a safe place for exploration. Crawlers are sung to, played with, rocked, bottle fed and/or (with permission) given Cheerios for snack. The caregiver/crawler ratio is 1:3.
- Terrific Toddlers (walking to 2 years): Our toddler room morning begins with quiet supervised free play. This play consists of activities using such toys and activities as puzzles, blocks and reading books. A snack of crackers and water is given. Caregivers pray for and with the children. The caregiver/child ratio is 1:4.
Elementary: Our goal is to supplement the family in their efforts to lay a spiritual foundation that will lead a child into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and then to provide for them a place where they can grow in their knowledge and love for God.
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” ~ 2 Timothy 2:15
