Infants and Pre-SchoolOpen 8:00 – 11:15
We believe that by loving and caring for these little ones, we are providing a safe environment and a place where you feel confident leaving your children, knowing they are cared for and loved. Toddlers and pre-school are where children are introduced to God’s Word and first start to learn about the Bible. As they learn the basics of faith, they begin to understand that God made them and everything else wonderful in this world. We offer a field trip every spring and fall for the toddlers and pre-schoolers.
