Need to know What to expect Baby Dedication K-5th >

 

The Rainforest is our preschool environment for children from birth through Pre-K. Each week, we work to teach every child three things:  God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. We do this through a variety of engaging methods, including activities during small group time and large group worship.

Ultimately, children in the Rainforest begin to understand that they can talk to God, at any time and in any place.


OUR RAINFOREST ENVIRONMENT IS OPEN DURING THE ADULT SERVICES.

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Each Sunday, staff and volunteers work hard to create a safe and meaningful experience for your children. Here are a few things you need to know to help us make their time in the Rainforest great!

• Doors open 15 minutes before the adult service begins.
• Security is a focus for us. We require all children to checkin before entering the Rainforest. Details about check-in can be easily found right near the Rainforest entrance.
• It is important to inform us of any allergies or health concerns your children have.
• To keep our environment safe and disruption-free, we re-open our environment for pick-up when the adult service concludes.
• For the protection of all our children, please do not bring your child to the Rainforest if they exhibit any of the following: fever in the last 24 hours, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours, common cold (onset through 1 week), any unexplained rash, cloudy or green runny nose, pink eye or any other communicable infection, persistent cough, or any communicable disease.

THANKS FOR MAKING OUR WELLNESS EFFORTS POSSIBLE.


WHAT TO EXPECT

INFANTS

We know that leaving your new baby for the first time can be overwhelming. The volunteers in our infant classrooms have been chosen for this age group because of their love for babies. While you are attending our adult service, your child will be receiving incredible care and a great experience, just like you will receive!

WE HOPE THAT THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WILL HELP YOU AND YOUR BABY HAVE A GREAT EXPERIENCE.

Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers, and any special blankets that will soothe your baby. Label all items that belong to your baby.

To ensure that your babies receive the best care, we adhere to a one volunteer to every two children ratio in our infant and crawler classrooms.

2-YEAR-OLDS

Our teaching plan begins in our two-year-old classrooms. Your two-year-old will participate in age-appropriate and creative activities and play.

You are the best teacher for your children, so each month we provide a Small Talk online that provides topics for discussion and activities to reinforce what they have learned that day.

3S – PRE-K

We want the Rainforest to be the best part of your child’s week. The hour is divided into several parts – a warm welcome by coaches and small group leaders who engage your child as they enter their room, with fun activities to grab their attention.

Just like our two-year-olds, each month we provide a Small Talk online. Have fun with your child using the activities to help them remember the Bible lesson from that week.

BABY DEDICATION

Baby Dedication is how we begin to help parents focus on what matters most, in the middle of all that is changing in your home, with your little one growing and changing daily. We want to partner with you as you raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT WHAT HAPPENS AT HOME IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT HAPPENS AT CHURCH.

Baby Dedication is a milestone for parents to take time at the beginning of their parental journey, to put first-things-first in your child’s life – so no matter what changes, your parental focus remains on helping your child prioritize God, just as you have.
