Welcome to our new teachers!

Ms. Beth will be spending her Sunday mornings with our under 2 year old friends in the Dandelion Room!  In addition to spending time with us over the weekend, she is in the midst of her 18th year working at St. David’s Center in the young toddler room.  Beth has a vast amount of experience teaching in Early Childhood and such a loving presence in the classroom.  Your little ones are sure going to love on her!

Ms. Mary will be spending her Sunday mornings in our NEW Treehouse Room for our 3-4 year old friends!  We are outgrowing our single class of 3-5 year olds so we are splitting the group in two.  Some of you may recognize Ms. Mary from WCC Nursery School!  She currently teaches 3 year olds in the Butterfly Room and is also the Music & Movement Specialist.  Mary brings an amazing energy and buzz to every class she is a part of.

What a blessing to have these seasoned and talented teachers!  And another blessing that we are continuing to grow in a way that allows us to safely care for more children and give them a rich first look at the love of God through the relationships and messages they experience in our space.


December Curriculum Update – Birthday Bash!

Happy birthday, Jesus! Yes, we know that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday, but do your preschoolers know? It will be a new idea to some of them.

We  want our preschoolers to know that the reason we celebrate Jesus’ birthday is because Jesus is God’s Son. God’s Son deserves a celebration as big as Christmas and a birthday bash as big as what we’re going to give Him this month! He is that special! So, gather up all the birthday celebration you can and prepare to party all month long! It’s not just balloons and party hats. We are sharing the true story that God gave us His only Son, Jesus, and HE is worth celebrating!

Check out our December Bible verse!
What’s Coming Next?

WEEK 3 – 12/16

 

Week three we will hear about the most
amazing birth announcement EVER as the angels go and
tell shepherds nearby that Jesus has been born! You
won’t find anything to top that on Pinterest!

 

WEEK 4 – 12/19 & 12/23

Week four is party time! We will sing happy
birthday to Jesus and celebrate in such a super fun way
that our preschoolers will know:
1. It’s Jesus’ birthday
2. We celebrate Jesus because He is God’s Son and…
3. Christmas is all about JESUS’ birthday!

 

WEEK 5 – 12/30

 

Week five we will wrap up the big birthday
bash with a visit from some wise men. They follow a star
a very long way just to worship Jesus. Hey, they knew
Jesus is special!
