Preschool and Kindergarten

We are excited to partner with families in teaching their preschool-aged children about God and His Word.  It is our hope that your children will grow to have a love for God, a love for the Bible, and a love for people so that they have a strong spiritual foundation as they head into school. 

Our Vision is to be a community where children can:

  • Know God in a place where the child feels God's love and value.
  • Grow in their relationship with God with age-appropriate curriculum and take-home pages to reinforce Bible lessons at home.
  • Show God by encouraging Christian virtues of sharing, praying, kindness, etc.

 

Check-In Procedures

We know that getting children settled in a classroom can be overwhelming, but we want to make the process quick and stress-free!  The TOT Garden Welcome Desk is located on themain level and we have a team of volunteers at the main entrances to help you find it.  Once you arrive, our welcome team will help you check your child into the designated room and get them settled.

Upon check-in the system will print out a sticky label to put on your little one's back along with a claim ticket that you will present to the teacher to pick up your child at the end of service.   

Safety is of the utmost importance to our staff and we ask a few things of you as we work to keep your child safe and happy. 

  • We ask that all items be labeled with your child's

This helps us ensure your child is getting the items you packed for them and it also ensures we safely return your items to you.

  • Please alert the caretakers of any allergies.

List any allergies in our check in system so they will appear on your child's sticker at check in each week, but we also ask that you mention food allergies to your child's teacher when you drop him or her off.   

  • Please, no peanuts.

Due to allergies concerns, we provide grahamcrackers, animal crackers, or vanilla wafers and water for snack.  You are welcome to provide your child a different snack, but we have a strict “no peanut” policy.
