Infant Nursery – God’s Glorious Garden and Jesus’ Jungle
We welcome your children to experience God’s love for them through the care of our awesome nursery volunteers. We welcome children from 6 weeks through to toddlers into our nursery. Stories and playtime and rest if needed help children to feel safe and cared for. Our sign-in and release system gives parents peace of mind to leave their kids. And we can contact you while you are in worship if your child needs some extra tender care that only you can give.
PreschoolOur preschool is where children begin to explore the stories of Jesus and the ways those stories still have meaning for their lives. There are games and reading and small group attention by our Pre-school Leader and volunteers. Children begin to experience the power of a small group as they get to know Jesus and one another in a new way.
Wonderkids - JK to Grade 3
Wonderkids is the name of our JK-3 classes for children. We have found that children have an innate sense of the presence of God. We use “Godly Play” curriculum. This Montessori based program helps children to explore their faith using story-telling as the way to share biblical stories. Their spiritual experience is enhanced through wonder and play in a hands-on, creative way that gives space for their questions and insights.
Connect - Grades 4 and 5
Connect is the name of our Grade 4 & 5 class as well as the curriculum we use. The Connect curriculum connect with God's big story through videos, Bible exploration, and hands-on projects. Once a month Kids Krew (some of the Connect children) meet and plan out activities for the children’s program offered on “Big Church Sundays” (the 1st Sunday of every month when communion is served)
For kids needing assistance because of a developmental or physical challenge, we work with parents to understand each child’s needs and work to provide a “Special Friend” for their child to enjoy the lesson with one-on-one support. Our goal is to make NBUC’s Children’s Program available for all children.
