Parents with children 6 weeks to 36 months can take comfort in knowing that their infants and toddlers are receiving exceptional, loving care in our nursery while they enjoy worship.
Our nursery is located in the Ministry Center and is equipped with all the necessities for little ones from toys to rocking chairs and cribs. And, with 2 teachers always present, our babies and toddlers enjoy the close attention they need.
Our preschool is for children 3 years of age to entering Kindergarten and is located in the Ministry Center.
Upon entering the preschool classroom your child is invited to participate in a variety of engaging activities. The activities are designed for the leaders to interact with the children while creating an enjoyable learning environment for each child.
In the preschool classroom children learn a Bible story and participate in a variety of hands on activities that help to reinforce the focus of the day.
The preschool classes have a snack that may consist of Ritz crackers and/or raisins and water. The classes may visit the playground, weather permitting. Please send a jacket or sweater with your child during cooler weather.
Elementary children meet in the Foundry as a large group for teaching and worship, then break into age appropriate groups for exciting activities that help them apply what they are learning.
We are currently using GO! curriculum in EP KIDS. We love GO! Each GO! lesson is an interactive experience that allows kids to become a part of the storytelling in imaginative ways. More than that, GO! allows kids to learn not only a Bible Story but it helps kids think through how to apply their faith in everyday situations.
Children's safety is of the utmost concern to us. We have taken great lengths to put the best safety practices in place and we regularly evaluate our policies to make sure that we are providing the safest environment possible for children.
All volunteers complete a volunteer application process which includes an application, nationwide background check, reference calls, and an informal interview. Our volunteer handbook explains best practices and operating standards for anyone working with our children.
Our child security system requires that every child wear a name tag with a security number and allergy alerts if necessary. Children are only released to adults with a security claim ticket matching the child's security number.
If you are a guest, a leader with a tablet will be ready to help check your children in as you enter the foyer.
We operate a well-child program. For the protection of all the children we cannot accept a child with a runny nose, fresh cold (four days or fewer), fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea or any other signs of illness.
We welcome all children in EP KIDS. If your child has allergies, or needs modifications or accommodations in order for them to access EP KIDS please contact Michelle Ross.
