2015 Summer Plan - Sprouts [Age 2-5]

Summer is here!  Starting Sunday, July 5, we will be making some changes for the summer to our Sunday morning programming for preschool children and we wanted to let you know what to expect. If you have questions please contact us.

What time does Sprouts run on Sundays?
Starting July 5 we will have one church service each week at 10am.  Children will attend the service with their families and be dismissed part way through to the Orchard at roughly 1030am.

What ages are in Sprouts this summer?
Sprouts includes children who are between age 2 - 5. We are not advancing children from one program to the next until Sunday Sept. 13. That means that for the summer, children who did not attend school during the 2014-15 school year will be a part of Sprouts. 

What is the Sunday morning schedule for Sprouts?
While each week leaders may adapt the schedule slightly, here is a rough guideline:

1000am Worship Service
1030am Dismiss to Sprouts
1035am Welcome
1040am Teaching Video / Discussion Time
1120am Quiet Games / Activity Pages in Room
1130am Parents Pickup Children

What will Sprouts learn this summer?
In the summer we use video teaching material to give our regular volunteers the summer off and to allow our summer volunteers to have a low prep / great experience in Sprouts! We are excited about this summer's series! We will be showing videos from the Bible App for Kids Curriculum. These videos will match the content in the Bible App for Kids - we will send you links each week with what we have taught!

Where do I go for Sprouts?
Children must be checked into Sprouts at our registration desk outside the main church office.  After checking in at the desk, Sprouts children will enter our largest Daycare room where they will remain there for the morning. If at any time you need directions, check at our welcome center in the main church lobby.

Who leads Sprouts during the summer?
During the school year [September – June] we have a fantastic team of dedicated volunteers.  For the summer we like to give them as much time off as we are able.  This means that during the summer, our ministry is run mainly by parents [like you] and other volunteers who are willing to serve God and love our children for one morning during the summer.  We require a team of approximately 6 people every week. Please join us for a week as a volunteer this summer!  Note: All volunteers must complete a Child Abuse Register form and an RCMP / Police Criminal Records Check.
