CP Preschool is a ministry created just for kids! It is a place filled with exciting environments designed to create a fun place for our youngest children to learn about God. Engaging teaching methods combined with awesome volunteers who care about kids make CP Preschool a place where parents can know their children are building strong spiritual foundations. Our ultimate goal is that all kids would know Three Basic Truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
Sunday Mornings in CP Preschool
We provide two age-appropriate environments for your kids:
We know that leaving your new baby or toddler for the first time can be challenging. The volunteers in our nursery, crawlers, and toddlers classes have been chosen for these rooms because of their love of babies. You can worship knowing your child is being well cared for and loved on by our very experienced team. Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers and any other items that your child needs. Make sure all items are labeled. Extra name labels can be printed at the check-in desk if you need them.
We serve a variety of crackers in both the crawlers and toddlers classes. If a new snack is served, we will post a sign at the door alerting you of the change. Be sure to communicate with your child’s teacher, as well as write any allergies or special instructions for feeding, napping, or potty-training in the check-in notebook at your child's classroom door. Allergy and Potty-Training Alert Stickers are available to put on your child.
We promote based on development in this age group. So, when the babies start crawling they will move up to crawlers, and when they start walking, we will move them up to toddlers. If you would like to know what your child is learning about this month, be sure to pick up a parent cue card at the door of your child’s classroom.
It is our desire that when a child promotes to the Children’s Ministry they would know three basic truths: God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus Wants to be my friend forever. Your child will participate in a variety of activities that reinforces a weekly Bible story and our monthly bottom line, which is built upon one of these basic truths. If you would like to know what your child is learning about this month, pick up a parent cue card located at your child's classroom door.
Sunday mornings are divided into three segments. When children come in, they will be welcomed with our Arrival activities, which are designed to engage preschoolers and prepare them to hear the weekly Bible story. Next, they will travel to their Large Group, Butterfly Island. In Butterfly Island preschoolers are encouraged to dance and sing during worship, act out their memory verse and participate in an interactive Bible story. When they return to their room, they will participate in Small Group Rotations. These rotations include creative crafts, games, reviewing the Bible story, prayer and snack.
Each Sunday, we serve a variety of crackers with water for snack. If a new snack is served, we will post a sign at the door alerting you of the change. Be sure to communicate with your child's teacher any allergies or special instructions for potty-training. Allergy and Potty-Training Alert Stickers are available to put on your child.
Please label all your child's belongings. Your child will promote to the next classroom based on the school calendar. Promotion takes place in the fall.
A Safe Place to Be
Your child's safety is just as important to us as it is to you. In CP Preschool, we go to great lengths to create safe environments so that you and your kids have a great experience. From matching parent and child security tags to every volunteer being screened with an interview and a federal background check, we make sure that all our kids are learning about God in the safest environment.
PRE-REGISTER YOUR CHILD
If you are planning a visit to Cross Pointe, you can pre-register your child for Sunday morning. You can provide important information, including allergies and special needs, that will help us prepare to care for your child. When you arrive, your information will already be in our system and it will speed your check-in experience.
Want to Join the CP Preschool Team?
Every Sunday, volunteers show up to serve in preschool. They are critical players on our team! They use their passions and gifts each week to supplement every parent's efforts in laying a spiritual foundation for their children. By doing so, together we are raising up the next generation of Christ followers. There is nothing like being part of the force that is shaping the future of Cross Pointe--and our world! We would love to talk to you about joining our team.
Well Child Policies
We're all sensitive to those who might be a little "under the weather". But illness in our Preschool Ministry we take a little more seriously, as kids can pass along germs to their friends and before you know it, the whole class is sneezing up a storm! Here are our Well Child Policies, designed to protect your children and your family, which we ask all our parents to abide by when bringing your preschoolers to church.
We ask that you not bring a child to church who appears to be ill. This is for the protection of your child as well as the other children. If your child has or has had in the last 24 hours any of the following symptoms, please do not take them into a Preschool classroom:
- Common cold, from onset through one week
- Sore throat
- Any unexplained rash
- Pink eye or other eye infection
- Any skin infection; boils, ringworm, impetigo
- Any symptom of childhood disease such as scarlet fever, German measles, mumps, chicken pox or whooping cough
If your child develops a fever or other symptoms of illness while he/she is in a Preschool class, he/she will be isolated and you will be notified.
If your child develops an infectious disease (measles, mumps, chicken pox, etc.) following a session in the CP Preschool ministry, please contact the Preschool Office immediately.
All medication must be administered by a parent.
Parents should indicate any allergies your child has at the time of arrival.
For sanitation purposes, we request that you use disposable diapers at church. This helps eliminate the spread of germs. Cloth diapers and soiled clothing are not rinsed out. They will be returned to you in a plastic bag.
