Classes & Curriculum
Northway Preschool Curriculum
Our exciting curriculum utilizes resources from God’s Story For Me Curriculum and the Beginner’s Bible. Preschoolers will read about how the promise and presence of Jesus is at the heart of each Bible story. Then they will take what they’ve learned and share Jesus’ love with others. Our goal is to equip families with opportunities to grow together spiritually through these timeless Bible stories and activities. We use the same curriculum for all of our classes, but the lessons are appropriately adapted for each age group.
Sunday Morning Worship Schedule
We offer two distinct hours of programming in our preschool ministry during the 9am worship hour and the 10:30am worship hour. Northway encourages our members and regular attenders to participate in the worship service during one hour and plug in by serving in a ministry for the other hour. In order to allow parents to do this, we believe in offering a fully programmed morning for our children – there’s no repetition between the 9am and 10:30am preschool worship schedule, both teaching the same Bible truth but with fresh games and activities.
Our 9am preschool worship meets in age-divided classrooms. Leaders incorporate a lesson, a game, snack, memory verse practice, and other fun, hands-on activities. Teachers are trained parents, grandparents, and volunteers who have been carefully vetted and background checked.
During the 10:30am worship hour, each preschool class comes together for large group worship where they get to learn, dance, sing, and get silly with engaging videos, skits, puppets, and more. We look at the Bible story from the 9am hour in a different way and incorporate 20 minutes of arts and crafts, 20 minutes of play time often on the playground if weather permits, and 20 minutes of worship.
