Early Childhood at FFC
Our Early Childhood programs are defined as infant through preschool ages. We have developmentally appropriate classrooms for all ages so you can worship and enjoy our services while confident your children are well taken care of. We perform full background checks on anyone working with minors, offer trainings and resources, and maintain teacher to student ratios in our classes to ensure a productive learning environment for your children. We believe it is important to share the love of Jesus with our children from an early age. Beginning in our Walker room, they will hear the gospel presented each week with a Bible story that aligns with the elementary lesson. We also believe there is great value in play. Children are given many opportunities to interact with each other and play in a loving, fun environment.
We have an infant room, where we have caring, trained adults who take care of your little ones while you worship. We also have a quiet room available with cribs for sleeping babies as well as rocking chairs for nursing moms. Children may begin in this room as soon as parents feel comfortable leaving them. They will transition to the toddler rooms after they have turned one and are mobile.
Our toddler rooms are for our one and two year old children. In these developmentally appropriate rooms, kids have toys, games, and play equipment for their enjoyment, as well as a short Bible lesson and snack. the Bible lesson is the same as the elementary and preschool, but is presented in an age-appropriate way. Children will transition to our preschool group the Sunday following their 3rd birthday.
Finally, we have a preschool program for children ages 3 up through pre-kindergarten. Children begin in their classroom, then engage in worship and a Bible lesson, and then return to their classroom for a snack, activity and play time.
