PRESCHOOL


0-5 Years

The purpose of God’s Greenhouse Preschool ministry is to provide a safe, loving, fun, and comfortable environment for both you and your children. To accomplish this mission, our nursery and preschool workers give attention to each child as they care for their needs and as they teach.

ELEMENTARY


K-3rd Grade

God’s Garden Elementary Ministry exists to provide a warm, loving environment where you and your child can have fun and learn about God. We partner with parents to offer spiritual nurturing, to build relationships, and to teach Scripture effectively in the hope that children will understand and apply spiritual truths to their lives.

TWEEN


4th-5th Grade

A Tween is someone who is not a child, but not yet a youth, and who needs a special place of their own. To meet the unique needs of our Tweens, we have a special Sunday Sunday School class and offer retreats and special events throught the year. This age group also meets on Wednesday evenings during Midweek Oasis.


FAQ’S

   Is there a check-in system?

Yes, our Children’s Ministry has an ID badge system to help ensure that the individual who brings a child to his/her classroom is the same person with whom the child leaves during pick up time. As you sign-in your child, you will receive two small pieces of paper — one to be placed on a clipboard in your child’s room and one to take with you. Please bring this portion back for the sign-out process. You’ll also sign-in your child at the classroom entrance. This will give you a chance to discuss any special instructions with the nursery or classroom workers.

What are the classrooms like?

The Preschool Ministry is made up of five classrooms: Infants, Toddlers, 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, and 4/5-year-olds. All the classrooms are located within a central area of our Children’s Ministry Building and are outfitted with age appropriate furnishings and supplies.

   Who will be taking care of my child?

Each class is staffed by a committed team of workers. The Worship team serves on a regular rotation and the Sunday School Team is committed to teaching children for an entire year, so your child can begin the morning with familiar faces each week!

   What about snacks?

Unless instructed otherwise, children will be offered a NUT-FREE snack and water during classroom time.
