PRESCHOOL MINISTRY

The desire for our Preschool Ministry is that every time kids GATHER at OBC they are hearing about Jesus.  We want to guide them as they GROW in their knowledge of spiritual things. From the smallest babies to our Pre-K kiddos their minds are sponges soaking up all that they can and we want that to be Jesus.  We strive to not only teach our littles about how to SERVE others but to also offer opportunities for service.  Our goal is to partner with parents to begin to SPEAK the Gospel into their lives and teach them how to begin speaking the Gospel to others as well.  We incorporate missions into our Sunday and Wednesday gatherings.

CREATIVE LEARNING PROGRAM (CLP)


THE BASICS OF CLP

  • The Creative Learning Program is a Christ-centered program, a ministry of our church, for children ages 2- 5 years old. 
  • We are in session from mid-August through May on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00am - 2:00pm. 
  • We have the same schedule as the Hamilton County School System, so when the public school has breaks or delays/cancellations due to inclement weather, we will be out as well. 
  • We also follow Hamilton County for the placement of our children.  Whatever age your child is on August 15th will determine the class that your child will be placed in here. 
  • Our fees include a once per year registration fee of $50, a supply fee due in August of $70, tuition for August is $85, and tuition September through May is $155 per month.  
  • You do provide your child's lunch each day and we ask that you not send anything that needs to be kept cold or microwaved.
  • We have music on Tuesdays and Chapel on Thursdays; we also have a couple of music programs for family and friends.
  • We currently use an in-house curriculum.  We begin in 2's teaching colors, letters, and numbers in fun ways to introduce them to the little ones.  Each year we build on that foundation until they are Kindergarten ready.  We teach bible stories each day and focus activities around the children.  Our main lesson is that Jesus loves them and that they are special and unique creations of God.
  • Each month has a theme for the entire school.  Examples: February (Community Helpers Month - We have an ambulance, fire truck, a librarian, etc. come visit our school.)  March (Animal Month - We have a veterinarian visit as well as a service animal.)
  • We encourage celebrations and parent involvement.
  • We strive to provide a safe and loving environment where the children can grow and flourish both academically and spiritually.


The goal of the Creative program is to enable children to:
  • grow in understanding and love for themselves, their families, and others
  • become aware of God's love and His world
  • feel that Jesus is a special friend
  • develop language skills and the ability to solve problems
  • enjoy creative expression in art, music, and imaginative play


Registration for the 2019/2020 school year will begin on April 15th.  You can come to the gym on that day from 9:00-12:00 and fill out registration paperwork and pay the $50 registration fee.  Tours will also be available on this day.
