Nursery and Preschool Children

The Cove is our environment for our nursery and preschool children. Your little one begins with us in our Lullaby Lagoon, an environment that offers a warm, caring, safe and sanitary environment. Here your little one will begin to learn about God's love through our caring and nurturing volunteers.

When your little one begins toddling, he/she will be moved to our Pelican Beach environment where he/she will begin to transition to "play with a purpose" and begin hearing simple Bible stories and concepts while they play.

As your child continues to mature and develop, we will move your child through our other toddler environments, Starfish Beach, Turtle Beach and Dolphin Beach. By the time your child turns 3 years old (following the school guidelines of promotion according to birthdays on September 1), he/she will move to Surfin' Safari, and then the next year to our pre-k environment in Island Treehouse.

All of these environments are amazing places that will captivate the hearts and imaginations of our toddlers through 5 year olds. Preschoolers will experience hands on activities, craft projects, interactive Bible stories, music and small group interaction. We want every preschooler to know:

God made them.
God loves them. 
Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

Lullaby Lagoon: Babies

We know that leaving your new baby for the first time can be overwhelming. The volunteers in our environments for babies have been chosen for this age group because of their love for babies and their ability to care for all of the needs of your infant. We hope that the following information will help you  and your baby have a great experience during your time with us.

Pelican Beach, Starfish Beach, Turtle Beach, Dolphin Beach:
Beginning Walkers and Toddlers

This is a fun and active stage in your child's life. In this environment, your child will learn that God loves them, God made them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. All activities are age-appropriate with plenty of flexibility for the normal needs of toddlers.

Surfin' Safari, Island Treehouse: Threes to Fives

We want weekends to be the best part of your child's week. Surfin' Safari and Island Treehouse begin to open your child's eyes to Jesus and prepare them for their next step of the journey.
