Supervision

Supervised by the Director of Administration with support from the Interim Dir. of Faith Formation & Outreach and the Preschool/Children’s Committee.

Guiding Principle

Our guiding principle is that the foundations of a child’s faith are laid very early. Infants and toddlers are learning that adults will respond to them in a loving, timely manner. Having a responsive caregiver helps a child learn to trust in people who care for them, which in turn enables them to trust in a loving God later in their lives. Therefore, we ask that our Caregiver responds lovingly, quickly, and consistently to our children. We also believe that the nursery/preschool is one of the most important ministries affecting church growth. The Caregiver is the first person many new families meet in the church. We need to have reliable, inviting, caring, and welcoming people in the Preschool to make a favorable impression on these families and surround the children with loving adults. Having loving and responsive caregivers help children learn to trust.
