Preschool (Infant – Pre-K)

We’re committed to partnering with parents to lay a foundation of faith that begins in the cradle. This is done in a safe, clean and fun environment. We use Lifeway’s Gospel Project for Preschool curriculum that is designed to guide children on a chronological journey through the Bible–from Genesis to Revelation–to encounter Jesus and learn the essential doctrines of the Christian faith. Each lesson is presented in a fun, age-appropriate format with activities, games, and discussions to reinforce the message. The curriculum used during the first hour is different from the second hour, so the children that stay for both will benefit from each hour.

The preschool area is located on the first floor of the Children’s Building.

First Time Guests

First time guests can register their Infants through Pre-K children at the Children’s welcome desk. Numbered labels and name tags alert teachers to allergies and special needs and provide security in knowing that your preschooler will only be released to the proper adults. Pagers are available for parents who do not have a cell phone.

Returning Guests

Returning guests can check in at any of the computer check in stations and two security tags will be printed. One tag goes on the child and the second is your security match required for pick up.


Do you have a nursing room?
Yes. The Mother’s Room is located in the Nursery area. It is a private room with rocking chairs, a changing table, burp cloths, blankets and water for mom.

Will my child be with kids their own age?
Yes. The children are put in classrooms according to their birth date. All of the children will be within just a few months of each other.

Do you perform background checks on your teachers?
Absolutely! Each preschool volunteer has had a background check. They are checked again every year. We also require that there be at least two teachers with the children at all times.

What do you do to avoid the spread of germs?
Our classrooms, including toys and furnishings, are cleaned and sanitized after each session. We also require that children be free of fever for 24 hours before entering the preschool area. If a child appears ill, they will immediately be removed from the classroom, and parents will be notified.
