Blast Off Babies – Nursery Ministry
Birth – Pre-K
Blast Off Babies is our Nursery Program for babies, birth through Pre-K. The program is divided into four developmental stage categories; Infants (birth until crawling), Walkers (new walkers) and Toddlers (steady walkers through 23 months) and then classrooms designated for Pre-K. Our weekend program for Blast Off Babies is located in Building D for children birth – Pre-K and is designed to meet the spiritual and developmental needs of our babies while providing a safe and playful environment.
Each of our volunteers has completed a Blast Off Kids New Leader Orientation Class, which includes age-level training, thorough review of our safety and security policies and a background check. This detailed process ensures that we will provide your child with the best possible care in a safe and secure child-friendly environment.
At the time of check-in (building D), a loving and trained volunteer leader will greet you. You will be asked to provide us with a phone number for a cell phone that you have in your possession. In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will send you a text message. (Remember to leave your cell phone on vibrate/silence during the service.) If your child cries, our caring volunteer leaders will immediately soothe your child. If your child cries for an extended period of ten minutes, we will text you. You and your child will receive a check-in tag specifically created for your child. To ensure their security, your child will not be released without presentation of your corresponding tag.
Please label all personal items with your child’s first and last name before arriving at your child’s class. For the safety of our children, all Pre-K must be wearing shoes to enter the program.
1. Two disposable diapers or pull-ups. Please no cloth diapers.
2. Pacifier, lovey, or other comfort item.
3. A complete change of clothes, including a sweater or jacket in cool weather. We often take our Pre-K to the outdoor playground.
4. A bottle or cup of milk, formula, juice or water. (This is a good practice even for mothers who nurse.)
Our weekend program is organized into the following structure: Play Time/Learning Centers, Bible Story and Bible Verse, Sing-a-Long and Craft/Snack. Your child (except infants) may even get a buggy ride! Our Toddler program includes an exciting time of worship songs and video driven lessons.
Our Children’s Ministry Center is a peanut-free environment. Snacks are provided for your child once they graduate to the Crawler classroom. The snacks consist of “Nilla Wafers,” Gold fish, and Donuts for Walkers, Toddlers and Pre-K. Please inform the leader if your child has an allergy to either of these snacks.
