Our Early Childhood Center is called Creation Cove, and hosts classes for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in a fun and safe environment.
Our volunteer nursery staff provides loving comfort to each child in this room during the 9am and 10:30am Sunday services, as well as during Wednesday night service. Infants remain in the nursery until they are walking well, at which time they are promoted to the Toddler Nursery.
PRIVATE NURSING AREA
A private nursing room is available for mothers to use at any time. It is located inside of our Infant Nursery.
Children ages 12-24 months enjoy this developmentally appropriate area equipped with basic large motor skill equipment to meet the needs of this active group. Volunteers provide a sense of security for this age group as their parents attend service, ABFs, or serve elsewhere in the church. Toddler childcare is provided for all services.
Our four preschool classrooms are divided by age and teach basic Biblical principles to children aged 2-5 years old. During their class, preschoolers will learn three basic truths:
God Made Them
God Loves Them
Jesus Wants to be their Friend Forever.
Our curriculum is developed around these basic truths and explains the Bible in simple to understand terms designed to nurture a child’s faith in Jesus Christ. Lessons for preschoolers include a live Storyteller, teaching DVDs, verse memorization, puppet shows, music, crafts, and games, all designed to reinforce what your preschooler is learning about Jesus.
We desire for Grace to be a safe place for children to attend. Preventive steps have been taken to promote the safety of children and the volunteers who work with them. Volunteers are given classroom guidelines and each fills out a Ministry Application. Grace Cove classes are equipped with glass windows for observation from the hallways. Our volunteers are asked to live in accordance with the Scriptures and abide by our policies.
We have also implemented an electronic check-in system. Parent cards are handed out and must be presented at pickup time. We use “Nursery Pager” as our paging system that uses text messages to page parents if needed during the service.
If your child has allergy concerns or any other special needs, please feel free to contact a member of the Grace Staff. We want church to be a great experience for every child, and are happy to work with you to make that happen.
