The preschool ministry at Highland serves as a partner to parents as they raise their little ones to know and serve the Lord. We strive to provide a safe and loving environment where preschoolers know that God loves them and that His word is living and true. Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Preschoolers have the option to gather on Sunday mornings with their families for Worship Gatherings in the Life Center. Children’s activity books are provided to keep little ones focused and attentive. Highland encourages children in grades kindergarten and above to attend a worship gathering with their family each week. Some families choose to bring their preschoolers along for part or all of the worship gathering.
Preschoolers grow through Sunday school classes where our curriculum takes us through the entire Bible every 3 years. Preschoolers learn truths about God, Jesus, and the Bible through interactive lessons, songs, crafts, and activities.
Preschoolers also have the opportunity to grow on Wednesday nights through our AWANA and Honeybee programs, which run from 6:45-8:00 pm during the school year. AWANA, for ages 3 through 6th grade, is a scripture memorization program that includes Bible lessons and games. Honeybees is for 2 year-olds and teaches Bible truths through lessons, puppets, crafts, and play.
POLICY AND PROCEDURES
Keeping our preschoolers safe and secure is our highest priority and we do that in several ways. One method is our electronic check-in system used on Sunday mornings. We have 3 computer check-in stations on the preschool floor to enable parents to quickly and easily check-in. Planning Center Online assigns a unique number to each child every week, and gives our staff a way to contact parents if necessary during the gatherings. A guardian receipt generated by PCO is required upon pick-up of each child in all preschool classes.
