At Willowbrook, we LOVE kids! Our Preschool Ministry provides nursery and age appropriate preschool Bible classes at all service times. We also provide David C. Cook’s “Tru Wonder Kid’s Church” on Sunday mornings at 9:30am and 11:00 am for kindergarten. On Sunday nights, along with our nursery, we provide “Lil’K” discipleship for 3-5 year olds. During the first full week of June we have Vacation Bible School for ages 4-6th grade at the Huntsville Campus.


PRESCHOOL INFORMATION

Birth through 2 years

Noah's Nursery facilitates care for ages birth through two years old. Your little ones are precious to us and great care is taken to maintain a clean and secure environment for them in the following ways:

Cleanliness
All staff wear clean smocks and shoe covers and change for each shift. Frequent handwashing is stressed and waterless hand sanitizers are supplied in each room. When a baby occupies a bed, sheets are changed and the bed is cleaned before another child can occupy the crib. All "touch surfaces" and all toys in the younger preschool area are disinfected. Health policies posted outside each door are strictly enforced. Anyone who is ill, appears ill, or has been ill in the last 24 hours should not serve in the nursery. Any child who is sick or has fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or any contagious illness will not be accepted into a preschool room.

Safety
A national background check is run on each volunteer after they fill out their volunteer application. A video security system is installed in every preschool room, allowing parents to view their child without the child seeing them. Parents may check the monitors at any time.

Checking In/Out
Safe Check-In is used for checking children in and out of class. You will need to register your child in the system only once by completing a visitor information form at either the preschool or GoKids desk (to the right as you enter). Once your child is registered, you will receive 2 labels. One has your child’s name and class name for them to wear. The other is for you to keep to check your child out at their classroom. Please make sure that you provided on the form a cell phone # that you keep near you during the time your child is in class so that we can reach you if needed. After your first visit, you will receive a family pin # at either desk to check your child in at either kiosk each Sunday located on the wall near the desks where he/she will receive their label with name. You will check your child out using the same pin # at their classroom.

Diapering
All babies' diapers are changed during each service hour or more often if needed. Every baby is changed on clean, disposable paper on the changing table. All diaper-changing facilities are located in full view for security. All nursery staff wear gloves when changing diapers and wash their hands and use hand sanitizers before changing another baby.

Preschool Sunday School
The Preschool Ministry serves children from age 3 through kindergarten. Sunday school classes are offered at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Children are taught the love of Jesus through Bible stories, songs, and learning activities. Our kindergarten class uses the Tru curriculum, which is a fun and interactive digital curriculum with audio and video clips, slides and videos throughout the lesson and lots of hands on learning.

Lil' K
Lil' K is an interactive multimedia-based curriculum for preschool children offered on Sunday nights from 4:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m. Lil'K is our chosen curriculum for Sunday night Sunday School for 3-4 and 5 year olds

Wednesdays in Preschool
Our Preschool Choir (coming Fall 2017) and Mission Friends classes will rotate on a semester schedule. Music will be offered on Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the fall, and Mission Friends is offered at the same time in the spring.

Summer Fun Day Camp
Your preschooler can enjoy one full week of fun and activities for preschoolers in July at the Huntsville campus. Look for dates, information and registration on-line in May.
