infants - kindergarten
Welcome to Early Childhood Ministries!
It is our privilege to provide a safe, fun and spiritually enriching environment for your little ones as they experience the love of Christ in our "Critter Corner". We provide care at the Saturday 5:00 pm, Sunday 9:30 am and11:00 am services.
All Children between the ages of 0 and Kindergarten register using our automated check-in system prior to going into the appropriate room. As you check in your child, please be sure to include any special instructions (feeding information, food allergies, toileting needs, etc.) you feel would be important for caregivers to know in caring for your child. Parents leaving a diaper bag need to request an additional label during the registration process so that each diaper bag is properly identified.
When you check in your child, a number will be assigned on your parent sticker. If you are attending the main service, this is the number that will flash on the small monitors under the large screens on either side of the stage when you are being paged. If you are attending a class on the main church campus or attending service at the Video Cafe or The Well at Lassen View School, please request a vibrating pager so that we may reach you if necessary.
Our caregiver ratio is 1 caregiver to 3 content infants. Three to five caregivers are scheduled to provide care during each service.
Caring for your infant:
If a baby becomes fussy while in the nursery, the following steps are takes prior to a parent being paged:
Our caregiver ratio is 1 caregiver to 4 content toddlers. Three to five caregivers are scheduled to provide care during each service.
Caring for your toddler:
Occasionally toddlers go through a stage of hitting and/or biting. If you child is prone to either, please bring this to the caregiver's attention when you drop you child off. In instances where the same child is repeating these behaviors, parents will be asked to stay with their child until this stage has passed.
Our preschool classes are staffed with one teacher and one to three helpers depending on class size.
The lesson presented each weekend is the same during each service.
