Nursery Westwood provides a clean and safe nursery for infants and toddlers ages 3 and under during all church-wide activities. We have two professional staff for infants & toddlers, and we have a Church Nursery Paging System to provide peace of mind for parents. Sunday School Our preschoolers are divided into age-based classes on Sunday mornings. These classes are led by caring teachers and each class provides engaging activities about God and God's love. CLICK HERE for a parent information sheet: "What Parents Should Know About Preschool Classes on Sundays at Westwood." We use the Gospel Light curriculum. We encourage you to engage your child about what they are learning by using the take-home sheets that are provided. Children’s Church is a separate, age-appropriate, informal worship time for children in 1st-3rd grades held during the latter portion of Sunday morning worship. Here's our typical schedule: First Sunday: remain in worship Second, Third, and Fourth Sundays: attend Children's Church Fifth Sunday: remain in worship Children’s Church meets in the FunDay School Art Room (106). The curriculum is focused on the lectionary texts that are shared in the sanctuary each Sunday. The children will be hearing and/or learning from the same Biblical text or story that Dr. Abernathy is preaching from. This will hopefully provide an opportunity on occasion to share with your child/grandchild what the scripture/worship meant to all of you. Teams of volunteers lead Children’s Church. On the first and fifth Sundays of the month, there is no Children's Church (you can read more about that below). Children's Church takes place on the second, third, and fourth Sundays of the month. Our volunteers will not only focus on the themes found in worship, but will also help to prepare the children to remain in worship on the first (and fifth) Sunday of every month. Why no Children's Church on the first and fifth Sundays? First and fifth Sundays will be an opportunity for you and your child to share the worship experience together, and to begin preparing him/her for the time when he/she will remain in the sanctuary for worship every Sunday when he/she enters the fourth grade. An activity sheet will be provided for the children to pick up on these Sundays during the offertory that they can work on during the latter part of the service. This sheet will also share the theme of the sermon and Scripture texts for that day. Our prayer is that this approach will be meaningful for children, leaders, and for parents/grandparents as together we share a worship theme and texts that will with the leadership of the Holy Spirit, be meaningful to us all. If you have any questions or if you would like to help lead Children's Church, please contact Rebecca Larson. Together, let us worship the living God!

Tauxemont Cooperative Preschool

Tauxemont has been teaching children (ages 2 1/2 through kindergarten) a love of learning since 1942. The Tauxemont learning experience encourages... parents to participate with their children during this major step away from home. At Tauxemont, we enjoy being involved with our children both during school and at our special events. Your family involvement is what makes your child's experience at Tauxemont unique. Tauxemont lights the spark of learning that will continue for a lifetime. Newcomers and long-time area residents alike find "our little school in the woods" a center for lifelong friendships. Tauxemont Preschool believes that formal education is best begun in the first grade and that our primary purpose is to provide an environment for a child to grow emotionally, developmentally, physically, socially, and intellectually. In order to provide experiences of this nature, our preschool: provides a wide variety of activities geared to the proper age and skill level of the children; emphasizes personal standards and pride of achievement rather than simple conformity to group standards and encourages the child to recognize that the process is as important as the product; encourages creative arts in addition to crafts, and dramatic and creative play in addition to organized games and activities; considers individual needs and different rates of development in children along with the aims of group activity and socialization recognizes that the most desirable discipline is self-discipline, and that encouragement and consistent standards are more effective than punishment in the development of self-discipline offers a developmentally appropriate program with out the use of formal devices, drills, competitive learning, or rigid routines.
