Preschool


A FRIENDLY REMINDER


We ask that you follow the basic COVID-19 prevention protocols of wearing a mask 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.

There are some alterations being made to traffic flow inside the building and normal operations in order for us to continue to gather safely as we welcome groups back to campus. Please read below and feel free to contact us at 757-461-3226 or email uswith any questions.


LIFEgroups 9 AM


Children LIFEgroup

We are excited to announce that Preschool LIFEgroups are back in person at 9AM on Sundays. If you are comfortable having your family return, welcome back! If you prefer to continue to lead your preschooler online, we celebrate that too! We will continue supporting those who meet with us virtually both for worship and groups. Preschool and Children’s LIFEgroup materials are made available weekly. Click here for Preschool and here for Children’s to access at home materials.

As preschoolers return a limited number of LIFEgroup classes will be available. Please be sure to register and RSVP online so that we may ensure appropriate staffing for our classes.  Moreover, all classes will now meet in the first floor.  As you come into the preschool lobby there will now be a wellness station where children have their temperature taken and parents confirm that their child is symptom free.  Parents will receive the new classroom numbers and check in their children.  Teachers will be wearing face shields so your child can see all of our happy smiles as we return to classes! We look forward to seeing you!

Drive-thru Trunk or Treat

WALK-THRU TRUNK OR TREAT

Friday, October 30, 6-7:30 PM

Get ready to spend an evening with us strolling through our walk-thru Trunk or Treat! Show off your costume as your family walks down a pathway of cars and people decorated like your favorite movies, places, and characters! Families will be socially distanced from one another and the vehicles. You will receive pre-packaged candy at several stations throughout, rather than from individual cars. Although this year will be a little different, we will have lots of fun as we see each other’s costumes and receive lots of treats! We can’t wait to see how great you look!

To make this a great event, we need your help. We are looking for vehicles and candy donations. Click here to volunteer as a trunk host or to help at the event. Please bring pre-wrapped candy and treat donations to the lobby when you are at church for worship or LIFEgroup or the receptionist's desk during the week 8AM - 5PM..

Please contact Jan Frost if you have questions: preschool@firstnorfolk.org or 757.461.3226 ext. 250

God Cares for Us! Jesus is our friend! The Bible is a special book!

Preschool ministry gives our youngest children (Birth through Kindergarten) a loving environment filled with hands on learning experiences, to learn these and other Biblical foundational truths. Children learn best through play and teaching is based on fun-filled learning centers.

UPCOMING EVENTS


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

...will be back in 2021

We've made the difficult decision to not have VBS in 2020. At this point where we are in Virginia with re-opening and the continued affect of the Coronavirus, we believe the best option is to hold Backyard Bible Clubs of small groups in neighborhoods during the month of August. Look for more details in the days ahead.
