We are always delighted to have new faces in the First Church preschool area. Below are the answers to some of the questions you may have as you prepare to bring your child to our nursery.

Sign In:

Please complete the sign in/sign out log as you enter and leave your child’s room. If your child is attending for the first time, there is also an information sheet we would like you to complete. Please be sure to write your cell phone number on the sign in log as this is the way that we will contact you in case of an emergency or if we need your help comforting your child.

Diaper Bags:

Please bring the following items:


  • Diapers and wipes
  • Bottles or sippy cup (if needed)
  • Change of Clothes
  • Pacifier or other comfort item (if needed)


Please label ALL of your child’s belongings

Toys from Home:

Please do not allow your child to bring toys from home. They tend to get lost or become the source of an argument about sharing.

Toilet Training:

Please inform us if your child is being potty trained and of any process you follow in rewarding their efforts. We will do our best to compliment whatever method your child uses at home. In addition, we ask that you provide a change of clothing for your child. Please note that simple clothing without belts, buttons, etc. will also help your child be successful with potty training.

Observation Windows:

If you are not picking up your child, but would like to check on him or her, we encourage you to use the observation window in your child’s classroom. By limiting interruptions, you will help us to keep your child happy and engaged.


We provide a snack each Sunday that typically consists of apple juice and gold fish crackers. Please communicate any food allergies to your child’s teacher and know that you are welcome to bring an appropriate snack for your child.


Please keep your child at home if they have had a fever or any other contagious illness within the last 24 hours.

Nursing Moms:

We have a nursing mother’s room available in the center room of the preschool area for your convenience.
