Childcare (All Day Preschool/Care)
This program is available to children of parents who are employed outside the home, five days a week, for at least six hours each working day. Two snacks, a lunch, and a preschool curriculum will be provided. (Three and four-year-olds must be potty trained.)
Chapel will be held in the sanctuary on Wednesday mornings. All students ages 2-4 will attend. Children under 2 will be invited on special occasions. Chapel time will include pledges to the American and Christian flags and the Bible, Bible stories, songs, special guests, and prayers.
We believe that a child forms his early concept of God from the people and experiences that are a part of his environment. God, Christ, and the things God has made are emphasized in our curriculum through appropriate activities. Bible stories and songs are included in the curriculum that the children may grow in the knowledge of God and His love. However, no formal religious doctrine or beliefs are taught.
