preschool

You can be sure our babies and preschoolers are handled with tender, loving care as we seek to meet their physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional needs. 


On Sunday mornings at 9am, we use "My First Look" curriculum for babies through Kindergarten. First impressions are important. That's how our curriculum is designed to give preschool children a first impression of their loving heavenly Father. This keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God each month.


The activities tickle all senses, making mastering the concepts a blast. From crazy fun activities to crafts to large-group Bible story and worship time to small-group ible time, it's all part of the plan to help a child believe three key things by the time they are age 5:

1. God made me.

2. God loves me.

3. Jesus wants to be my friend forever.


Safety

Safety is one of our top priorities at East Side. The entrance to our preschool wing remains locked and can only be accessed by authorized teachers and staff during a class session or service. All children receive a unique ID code when they check in each week at the preschool desk. Only parents with the matching ID can pick up a child. This ensures the safety and care of your child during our times of worship so you can then freely worship knowing your child is protected.
