Springs Kids

Hello Springs Parents!

We have some exciting things ahead for your toddlers through fifth grade starting in September.  We will be restructuring the classrooms to better fit learning levels as we introduce a new curriculum that we are so very excited about!

 

Curriculum Changes:

We are beyond thrilled to be piloting a three-year rotation of curriculum written by Watermark Community Church.

Our toddlers and preschool kiddoes will be learning “The Big Picture: A Preschool Look at the Story God is Telling.”  We will aim to build a foundation of biblical knowledge by teaching the major stories of the Bible and how these stories all fit together as God’s one big story.

Our elementary kiddoes will be learning to be fully devoted followers of Christ by looking at history, commands and encouragement in God’s word while focusing on a foundational virtue each month.  And YOU will receive all the tools you need to continue the conversation at home. Check out our new “Springs Kids” info table in September.

 

Classroom Ages and Locations:

The Springs Preschool Ministry

Nursery:  Location will stay the same in Room D.

Two’s and Three’s (Toddlers):  Location will stay the same – Room B: Use hallway entrance

Four’s and Five’s (Pre K):  Back half of Room B. Please use same entrance as 2’s and 3’s in the hallway.

(Preschool ages 2-5 will have a large group story time together and will split for age-specific activities.)

 

The Springs Kids Ministry

All elementary aged kids Kindergarten through 5th grade will dismiss from large group teaching and will be taken to their classrooms inside the museum. Class assignments will change slightly.

The three elementary aged classes will be:

  • Kinder – 1st grade
  • 2nd – 3rd grade
  • 4th-5th grade.

All elementary-aged children will be picked up in the glass Wonder shop room near the front of the museum.

We can’t wait!

Continue to pray for your child’s teacher/s as they train in August and mentor your kiddoes this fall.

 

Important dates:

August 20 OR August 27 (plan to attend one)

  • Preschool and Kids Ministry training (for all members of Teams A, B, C, and D) – Immediately following Sunday service at McKenna

 

Promotion Sunday: August 27th

  • We will be having a Rally in the gym to get pumped for School with all the kids as they move up to their new classes.
