Early Childhood - Parents Page

We provide excellent Bible-centered curriculum that our staff has been trained and equipped to use to teach your child in a fun, loving, and affirming environment. Our lessons focus on two educational principles; children learn by doing, and children learn through repetition. Our goal is for your child to leave knowing God's truth and love every week.

At New Life Church Early Childhood we believe that there are three basic truths every child needs in order to have a solid biblical foundation:

    Reverence for God (and His Word).
  • Respect for God's Authorities.
  • Regard for God's People.

We also believe that there are five things every child needs:

  • A really Big God they can trust no matter what.
  • Someone else who believes what they believe.
  • Another voice that says the same things their parents say.
  • Nosey parents who make it their business to know where their kids are spiritually.
  • Uncommon sense to help them make a wiser choice.


SECURITY FOR OUR CHILDREN

New Life takes child safety seriously, each week your child will be checked in through our state-of-the-art computer security system. Each child will be given a printed nametag with the child's, name, pager number (in case we need the parent during the service), and any allergy alerts. A corresponding tag will be printed for the parent and is essential for identification when you pick your child up from Sunday school.



ABOUT OUR CURRICULUM

Our New Curriculum is Group's Hands On Bible Curriculum. The basic premise of this curriculum is "1 Thing" helping our children to grow in their relationship with Jesus. It helps children know, love, and follow Jesus.

The lessons teach like Jesus did. Starting with the Bible and using creative activities to help children experience God's word and apply it to life. When children experience a Hands On Bible lesson they don't just hear it. They DO It.

This is called the R.E.A.L. approach to learning:

R - Relational
Group's resources encourage learners to interact with each other, which makes learning more effective and helps build Christian friendships.

E - Experiential
With Group's resources, learners, don't just listen or read, they actually experience the lesson. So biblical principles stick with them up to nine times longer!

A - Applicable
Every resource incorporates life application because Christians should be both hearers and doers of the Word.

L - Learner-Based
Different children learn in different ways, so group's resources provide a variety of methods to draw children closer to Jesus. Research shows people retain about 10% of what they hear or read. But they remember up to 90% of what they experience.
