All Souls Community Church supports parents as they sow the seeds of God’s truth in the hearts of their children.
We help our families grow with the confidence of knowing Christ and His love, so they can serve him together with the body of believers.
Nursery (babies to age 2)
We want our babies to grow up knowing their place in the family of Christ and to trust His love for them.
Our Nursery Supervisor, Jeannette Javier, is a CPR-certified, professional childcare provider and mother. She is present at all services to create a stable, predictable experience for our lambs.
A small Quiet Room is located in the chapel under the sanctuary for women who need to nurse or babies who are not ready for the nursery.
In order to provide an allergy-friendly nursery, only plain Cheerios and water will be provided to toddlers (if indicated as acceptable to parents at sign-in).
Diapers will be changed by our Nursery Supervisor or parent ONLY (as indicated at sign-in).
Preschool (ages 3/4/5)
Young children learn by doing, not by sitting. Play is their work. We create opportunities to connect children with the redemptive love of God through a mix of story and activity.
Our Preschool Supervisor, Ashley Javier, is present at all services to keep the procedures and routines stable for Teachers and the children.
Parents sign their child into class at the mid-service coffee break. Teachers will return children to the sanctuary before Lord’s Supper.
All Souls Kids (gr. K-5) Classes
These children rotate between two distinct learning environments.
In the Green Storytime room, they hear their Bible lesson told in a variety of interactive styles. They may be included in a small play or puppet show. The story might be told using visuals on flannelgraph or story posters. It might even be shown on DVD or through a digital slideshow. After the story, they play a game designed to probe deeper and improve comprehension of the lesson’s key concepts.
In the Blue Worship Response Stations room, the children are given options. In this free-choice time, children visit a variety of interactive centers designed to help them learn basic responses to God’s Love:
Because all children have different needs, Teachers will lovingly and prayerfully encourage them to follow these classroom rules.
