Preschool (Birth to Pre-K)

FIRST KIDS

INTRODUCTION

Preschoolers live in a world of discovery. Each day is an opportunity to grow and learn. As they grow physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually, our prayer is that they also are growing spiritually.

At The Woodlands First Baptist Church we are helping preschoolers to worship God, grow in faith, serve others, and live for Jesus. Each week, preschoolers will encounter the love of Jesus in a loving, safe, and secure environment. Our excellent staff of volunteers makes sure that each child is cared for, loved, and most importantly, has the opportunity to hear about Christ’s love. 

Your child’s safety is our top priority. That’s why we utilize safe check in and check out procedures with matching child name tags and parent pick up receipts, and every staff member and volunteer is background checked annually. Additionally, our paid staff is CPR/First Aid Certified, and we provide camera recordings throughout the building. On Sunday mornings, we also have a police officer assigned to our building. Our preschoolers enjoy saying “hi” to them each week! If you have any questions about our safety protocol, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Preschool Ministry team.

 

SUNDAY MORNINGS

On Sunday mornings, preschoolers will have the opportunity to experience two great hours of programming, so that parents may attend both worship and an adult small group. In preschool worship, kids will sing, dance, celebrate and worship as they learn about God’s great love. In small groups, preschoolers will be taught by our dedicated volunteers who focus on relationships, learning, and fun! We currently utilize the Gospel Project curriculum from Lifeway which is an engaging program that walks kids through the Bible in chronological order. You’ll be surprised how much your preschooler will learn about God and His Word!

First time guests (SOUTH CAMPUS):  Feel free to take advantage of the guest parking right in front of building D on the west side of our campus, and make your way inside to our Welcome Desk. Our friendly staff will help you check in, answer any questions you may have, and direct you to our Worship Center. Preschool Programming is available during both worship times on Sunday morning: 9:30 am (Traditional) and 10:50 am (Contemporary).

First time guests (NORTH CAMPUS):  Take advantage of the guest parking right in front of the building. You’ll enter our “Hub” greeting area, and a volunteer will be happy to help you find the preschool ministry department (located on the first floor). Our friendly staff will help you check in, answer any questions you may have, and direct you to our Worship Center. Preschool Programming is available during both worship times on Sunday morning: 9:30 am (Small Group) and 10:50 am (Worship).

 

OPPORTUNITIES

There are also plenty of programs and special events to engage preschoolers and their families. From Wednesday night preschool choir to Sunday Funday, VBS, and MOPS, The Woodlands First wants to be a place where preschoolers and families learn, worship, and develop lasting friendships. Feel free to ask anyone at our welcome desk for more information or contact Valerie Boldt (South Campus) valerie@thewoodlandsfirst.org or Jennifer Seely (North Campus) jennifer@thewoodlandsfirst.org

Make sure and check out our Save the Date tab for more information about upcoming events, or email katya@thewoodlandsfirst.org to be added to our weekly e-newsletter so that you have information on all our happenings!

Sunday Fundays:

Sunday Fundays are a chance for your child to have a monthly, thematic event while parents get an afternoon away! Each month (September-May) will feature quality care from our staff, themed events, parties, crafts, or special visitors like the mobile zoo. Registration is limited so families are encouraged to register early to secure their child’s spot. 

The MomCo 2024-2025 (Formally known as MOPS) 

Beginning this Fall, we are excited  for a name change to our MOPS and MomsNext group. Look for us under the new name The MomCo.  The new name was carefully chosen to be inclusive of all moms. MOPS International  recognized that we had outgrown our name and were unintentionally excluding moms with the term “mothers of preschoolers”. We offer belonging for all moms. We serve pregnant moms through moms of school-aged kids, but now under one name.

The MomCo is a gathering of mothers that encourages and equips moms to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders in relationship with Jesus and in partnership with our church. Join us for a meal, speakers, crafts, mission projects, and connect with other Moms! Your children  will enjoy a loving and safe environment as they follow their own curriculum, enjoy snacks, crafts, and play!

Join us at South campus on Tuesday mornings or Wednesday evenings or our North Campus on Thursday Mornings. Email jennifer@thewoodlandsfirst.org for more information or visit our website to sign up!
