upTOWN Preschool

Imagine a place where children will learn that GOD is a friend who will love them forever. Come join us in upTOWN Preschool where your preschooler (age 4 years old - kindergarten) will have the best hour of their week.

This is an exciting, action-packed experience designed with your preschooler in mind. Puppets, skits, stories, activities, and songs will grab their attention and make them want to come back for more!

We do this because we care about your child both developmentally and spiritually. We are here to partner with parents to guide our children into a relevant, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

And Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and men. Luke 2:52

Open House for New 1st Graders

All upcoming 2019-20 First Graders are invited to an Open House in DOWNTOWN...
WHEN? Saturdays August 10th and 17th around 7:15PM and Sundays August 11th and 18th around 12:15PM
(You only need to come to one.)
WHAT? A chance to meet Miss Pam and explore the DOWNTOWN area with your parents with a quick scavenger hunt.
**Please wait patiently near (not on) the stage when you come down to the open house. Other parents will be picking up their children after services. Once the area clears, we will start with our Open House.

Promotion Weekend

Ready to move up! All children completing Kindergarten through 12th grade will move up to their next grade level for the 2019-2020 school year on August 24 & 25. Until that time everyone will stay in the grade they just completed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tell me about your volunteers.

All of our upTOWN volunteers and staff have been through volunteer training and have had a BCI and FBI background check.

How does promotion work?

Children in the 4 and 5 year old classes are promoted on their birthdays.  Kindergartners will be promoted to 1st grade (DOWNTOWN) at the beginning of the school year.

What is your "well child" policy?

We ask that sick children not attend upTOWN in order to ensure the health of other children and staff.

What is your security policy?

In order to provide for the ultimate security of your child while in our care, we follow a strict security policy.  This is to ensure that only the proper adult may pick up your child.  When you register your child, you and your child will be given matching security ID numbers. You should sign your children in 15 minutes prior to the service starting. When the service is over, you must present your ID number to receive  your child.  If your child needs you during the service, we will put your security ID number on the screen in our main sanctuary and venue.  (20 minutes after each service begins, the children’s area is secured and only parents with security tags are allowed to access this area.)  In the unlikely occurrence the building needs evacuated, all parents will be directed to the East driveway parking lot where you may pick up your child with the approval of their leader.
