Welcome to Preschool Ministry where we pray, plan and play with a purpose! We believe that each child is created in the image of God and we want to love them and help them grow like Jesus did!
We’ve designed our preschool environment very intentionally to allow our youngest children to experience God’s love for them! Each child is assigned a room based on either their age or stage of development. Encouraging and nurturing teachers care for your children and provide fun hands-on learning experiences for them to feel loved and learn foundational biblical truths about God’s great big love for them. Our fantastic team members are passionate about each child feeling valued and loved by us, and more importantly, by Jesus. All preschool team members are screened, background checked and trained.
Please plan to arrive about 15-20 minutes early to register. Outdoor teal banners indicate preschool entrances. Stop by Wellness Station in Preschool Lobby.
We ask that you follow the basic COVID-19 prevention protocols of wearing a mask (ages 5 and up) whenever inside the building, washing your hands often, staying socially-distanced, not attending if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, have been exposed and you don't know your status, or have been diagnosed as positive within the last 14 days.
We will be performing a contactless temperature check for your preschooler. If your child has an elevated temperature, they will not be able to attend. Our team sanitizes all areas regularly and LIFEgroup rooms and the Worship Center are sanitized after each meeting time.
Please feel free to contact us at 757-461-3226 or email us with any questions.
VBS will look different this year so we can safely accommodate as many children as we can. We're working on the details and considering the current health guidelines for safety. We need your help to make VBS happen. Sign up for one week or both! There will be many roles to fill and there's one that fits you. Volunteers must be members of First Baptist Norfolk. Click the button below to sign up. If you are thinking about serving and have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Look up—way up. That’s where we’re headed. Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery. Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky. These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built. Yet they all began the same way—with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly, a solid foundation. This summer, kids will grab their hard hats and head out to the construction site to discover that skyscrapers aren’t the only things that need a rock solid foundation.
Welcome! Preschool LIFEgroups are now available at 9:00AM on Sundays. Smiling volunteers are ready to assist your family whether you are first time guests or a returning family. As you come into the preschool lobby, there is a Wellness Station where children have their temperatures taken and families confirm that their child is symptom free. Next, head over to the preschool desk to register and check in. All Birth through Kindergarten classes now meet on the first floor so be sure to get your new classroom number. Our leaders all wear masks but you can still see our happy faces and we look forward to seeing you!
