At Willowbrook, we LOVE kids! Our Preschool Ministry provides nursery and age appropriate preschool Bible classes at all service times. Sunday mornings, children ages 3-kindergarten, are taught David C. Cooks “Tru Wonder Kids” Curriculum.   On Sunday nights, along with our nursery,  we provide “Dig In” discipleship curriculum  for our 3-5 year olds.  On Wednesday nights, childcare is offered for nursery through Kindergarten.


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
You will need to register your child in the WillowbrookLife system by creating a family profile at either the preschool or GoKids desk (to the right as you enter). You will type in your names, children’s birthdates/grades, mobile number and carrier (to text you during service if needed), address, and email. Our desk volunteers will assist you and take facial photos which are used to check out your child. Once your child is registered, he/she may be checked into class each time you come to Willowbrook at one of the computer kiosk in the children’s area. You will receive 2 nametags (one is for the child to wear and the other is to give to the teacher for the class roster) from the printer as well as a security code to check out your child. The security code can be torn in half so that you and your spouse may each pick up children at the same time and is a sticker so that you can stick it on your clothes to not lose it.

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.
