Entering kindergarten may not sound like a BIG deal to most, but to parents it’s a really big deal. You want to help your kid know that everything will be okay in their new environment, in their new room, with their new teacher and with their new friends. You want to see that your kid is happy and navigates well through all the “new” without losing the special bond you have nurtured through the preschool years. Your child is changing and entering a new phase of life – and as scary as that may seem – it’s a good thing. It’s all part of God’s plan.

Westwood’s nursery is BIG on caring! Staffed by loving, trained Westwood adult volunteers, our nursery offers parents a warm, secure, and nurturing environment for their little ones. We provide separate rooms for each age. Parents can feel comfortable attending services knowing that their little ones are well cared for.
Ages 3 – 5 (Preschool)
What could be more exciting or important than learning about God’s love for us? Nothing! That is why our classes focus on how important it is to give God thanks for all He has done. Through Bible stories and related activities, children learn how to show God’s love to others, that they can trust God, that He will answer them when they pray, and that God deserves thanks for His help and love.
Grades K – 4
Uptown KidCity (Grades K-4) meets at 9am and 10:30am on most Sundays during the school year. Our kick-off is Sun, Sept 16. Check in upstairs at the Blue Room.
Uptown KidCity offers exciting, drama-filled Bible lessons, paired with meaningful small group activities and games! Your child will bring home:
- FridgeDoor notes – weekly updates for parents letting them know what their child has learned in class.
- GodTime cards – weekly devotionals for kids that help them focus on reading the Bible and talking with God at home.
Special Needs Ministry
(Infants – Grade 4)
The purpose of KidCity’s special needs ministry is to facilitate inclusion inside the church body for children (infants-Grade 4) with additional needs and for their family through:
- Creating an accepting church environment.
- Developing an appropriate plan and/or supports (ie: assigning a Junior Buddy, etc).
If this is something you’d like to learn more about, stop by our Downtown KidCity area to visit our Sensory Room and talk with our Special Needs Ministry Leaders. We’d love to chat with you and your family.
We offer our Special Needs Ministry on most Sundays at our 10:30am service.
