WCC Nursery School Open House – Join Us!
All families are invited to come to this special school event to meet teachers, tour classrooms, and get all of the information you will need to enroll your children for the 2018-19 school year! We will have open gym time with staff available, if you need a place for your children to go while you visit with teachers and nursery school staff. Tell your neighbors and friends, this is a great time for everyone to get to know our staff, see our space, and learn about all of the great programs we have at WCCNS! Hope to see you there!
If you attend, make sure to stop by the Sunshine Room to say hi to Miss Hannah!
Kids’ Night Out
The next Kids’ Night Out is FRIDAY January 19th! Children, 3 years old through 5th grade, are welcome to join us for a night of pizza, games, crafts, and a movie. Check your child in at the Gym, by the West Entrance, at 6pm. The fun concludes at 10pm. We know this is quite late for our early childhood friends so know that it is always okay to pick your child(ren) up early. Let Jodie Nyberg or Ashley Fournier know at check-in if that is something you are interested in.

This week we will be continuing our winter adventure by heating up the Community Room with more snowy themed music and movement. Winter weather is a great reminder that even though the snow will eventually melt, God’s love for us never will! See you on Wednesday from 4:30-5pm in the Community Room.
Infant Baptism Milestone: Engaging the Sacrament of Baptism
Parents of infants spend one session sharing, laughing, and growing as they learn about their baby’s physical, emotional and spiritual health…as well as their own. We share about the sacrament of Baptism and the theology behind why we practice this ancient ritual. The course finishes with your child’s baptism at Sunday worship. Parents and their infants are together for the beginning and close of the session, with nursery care provided during the rest of the session. Childcare will be provided for additional children in your family at the cost of $20 per family. Our next baptism milestone session is Thursday February 1, 2018 from 6-7:15pm in the Colonnade. Future sessions are tentatively scheduled for the following Thursdays: April 12th, and May 3rd.
4 Year Old Preschool Prayer Milestone: Building Family Prayer Tools
A child’s transition from infant to toddler to preschooler is a period of constant discovery for parent and child alike. From the child’s perspective, virtually everything he or she encounters – from the most mundane task to the most unique occurrence – is happening for the first time. In this single session course we will craft 5 prayer tools to be used in your family. We will learn together how to put these prayer tools to use in your family’s regular flow of life. An announcement with the specific date will be coming your way soon!
