Celebration Park Preschool Information
Pre School – 9:30 and 11:00 (2 yrs - Thru PreK)
Young hearts and minds begin to lay their spiritual foundation of Biblical truths taught by our dedicated teaching team through learning centers, Bible lessons, music, crafts and free play.
It is our desire to come alongside parents to help their little ones know that: God loves them, God made them, and God wants them to love and follow His son, Jesus.
Check-In: Visitor check-in is located at the Children's Information Center near the zebra on the first level from 9:10-9:50 and 10:40-11:20. For security reasons, we request that you, the parent, not leave the campus while your child is in our care.
Bible Lesson and Worship: The same Bible lesson is taught at both the 9:30 and 11:00 hours; however, the teams for these times are different. To insure that this special time is a focused and uninterrupted experience for both the children and team members, our rooms are closed for drop-offs and pick-ups during 9:55 – 10:25 and 11:25 – 11:55. If you should need assistance during this time, a member from the Preschool Leadership Team is available in the hallway.
Snack Time: Children receive a snack of goldfish crackers and water during the 11:00 hour. If your child has an allergy to goldfish crackers, please notify the team leader. You may provide a substitute snack for your child if an allergy does exist. We do not allow any other food to be served in our classrooms in order to avoid unknown allergy problems. To avoid unintended sharing, please do not bring sippy cups.
Activity Time: Your child's class may be taken outside to our playgrounds after 10:35. Therefore, please keep this in mind when dressing your child for church and bring warmer outer clothing if the weather is chilly.
Helpful Tips: Tears are frequent for children entering a strange classroom with people they are not familiar with. Usually, these tears do not last long. Generally, a loving, but quick departure by the parents helps the child adjust more quickly. If your child continues to be upset after your departure, we will let you know. It is helpful if favorite items or toys are not brought to church so that they do not get mixed up with the room toys or create a problem should another child want that favorite item. Pacifiers should be clipped to your child’s clothing. Please label bags, sweaters, jackets, and other personal belongings.
Our Preschool Leadership Team members wear a purple smock for easy identification and can be found in the Preschool hallway every Sunday. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are thrilled you are here and we look forward to getting to know you better.
