In our preschool and kindergarten classrooms, we want to see preschoolers have lots of fun and develop friendships while they learn one new big idea about God each week.
What to Expect
Our preschool and kindergarten classes use a curriculum called The Gospel Project for Kids. This curriculum take kids chronologically through the Bible, connecting the dots to reveal the overarching narrative of Scripture while showing how every story in the Bible points to Jesus.
Our preschoolers start off with games and activities that introduce the theme for each week’s lesson, they transition to a large group, which includes exciting praise, worship, and the Bible lesson. After large group, each age group returns to its classroom for small group activities that reinforce the main point in tangible and practical ways.
Basic snacks and water are served weekly, usually consisting of Goldfish, Nilla Wafers, or Cheez-its. We have a gluten-free option in each classroom as well. If yourchildhas an allergy, or if you prefer yourchildnot be served a snack, please communicate that with the teacher when dropping off thechild.
Bathrooms and Potty Training
We ask that parents take their children to the restroom prior to dropping them off in the classroom. However, for children that need to go during the service, an adult volunteer will accompany them to the bathroom. We will provide basic assistance as needed for 3 year olds, but children age 4 and older will need to be able to take care of any necessary wiping or cleaning on their own (except in the case of an accident).
We are considerate of the fact that some younger children may still be in the process of potty training, and so we will help with that as much as we can. If yourchildis potty training, please bring a change of clothes in case of an accident. If yourchildis still in diapers or pull-ups, please bring extras of those as well, and if needed we can change him or her in the 2 year old classroom.
What NOT to Bring
We request that preschoolers not bring any personal toys into the classroom, as this can sometimes lead to conflict in sharing with other children.
In our preschool classrooms, children are promoted by age on their birthdays. Kindergartners remain in the kindergarten class until the transition at the end of the school year.
