Preschool

Nursery Ages

Six Weeks- 23 Months

Preschool 

Ages 2- Kindergarten

 

 

 

 

Our nursery is divided into two attached classrooms:

 

  • Babies - for infants from 6 weeks old to age one or until your child is walking.
  • Walkers - for children walking up to 23 months old.

Our nursery is staffed with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to the child's physical, social and spiritual growth. When you are confident in leaving your baby in the care of our staff, then you are able to worship with a sense of security. We have taken great care to prepare our nursery rooms to be the best environment for your baby with age appropriate toys and an opportunity to interact with others. As we hold the babies, we pray for them to receive all that God has for them in life. We believe every child we pray for will be touched by God. New Horizon considers the nursery to be an important area of ministry, both for the parent and the child.

 

WHAT TO BRING

Our serving teams are here to ensure your little ones are well taken care of. Part of making their experience enjoyable is making sure we have everything we need to keep them happy, comforted, and fresh. When packing your diaper bag/backpack, we ask that you please include the following items:

6 Weeks to 2 Years

  • Two or three disposable diapers.
  • A pacifier or other similar comforting item, should your child need it for additional security.
  • A complete change of clothes… just in case.
  • A bottle of milk, formula, juice, or water.
  • If mothers are nursing please either supply us with pumped milk or feel free to use our new moms room while enjoying the service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
     

 

Our preschool is divided into 2 classes: 

 

  • 2 & 3 year olds and
  • 4 & 5 year olds. 

During services, your child will be in the care of several trained volunteers and New Horizon staff members, all of whom meet required background standards.

 

Our goal is to encourage preschoolers in a growing, loving relationship with Jesus Christ and others in an atmosphere where they feel a sense of belonging. We present biblical learning materials with a hands-on approach to help establish in the hearts of the children an active faith toward God and His Word. We have designed age appropriate classes just for them. We teach the simplicity of the Gospel through a variety of stories, crafts, Bible action songs and other activities. Every lesson taught reinforces Bible truths. Children can be ministered to individually during this time.

 

 

 WHAT TO BRING

Our serving teams are here to ensure your little ones are well taken care of. Part of making their experience enjoyable is making sure we have everything we need to keep them happy, comforted, and fresh. When packing your diaper bag/backpack, we ask that you please include the following items:

 

2 Years – 5 Years

  • Snacks: We provide light snacks that typically consist of “Cheerios”, “Goldfish” or “Animal Crackers” and water. If you prefer your child not to have this, please let one of our leaders know when you check-in.
  • Back-ups: We know that children at this age can, and still do have accidents every now and then. Just in case, we ask that you pack a small bag with a spare change of clothes, and diapers or disposable training pants, as applicable.

*Due to allergies we ask that no additional food is brought into the classrooms. (Infants are the exception to that rule)

WHAT TO EXPECT
Check-in:  From your child’s first visit, we will collect some basic information to get to know your child, and enter them into our system. From then on, each time you check-in, both you and your child will receive a security sticker with a matching 3-digit code, valid only for that day. We ask that both you and your child wear this sticker visibly on clothing, until you leave.
Enjoy Service: After dropping your child off, relax and enjoy the service! Our leaders are here to ensure your kids have an incredible time in Kajun Kids. However, if you are needed, we will display your 3-digit code on the monitors in the upper right and left corners of the worship center screens to alert you. Please be attentive to the monitors throughout the service; and if your number is displayed, head to the Kajun Kids area to speak with a leader.
TIP: Remember to have your children visit the restroom before checking into class!
Pick-Up:  Pick-up is a breeze. Just remember to have your security sticker available so that one of our leaders can match the number on your child’s sticker with the number on your sticker.
*If you happen to misplace your security sticker during service, proper identification will be required for release in order to match you and your child in our system.
That’s it!  We hope to see you and your kids this Sunday for worship. Your kids are sure to encounter God, have fun, and feel loved!
