What to expect
The PB&J department serves children ages 0-5. We have classrooms devoted to meet the needs of each age group in our department; Babies 0-1, toddlers 1-2, three-year olds, and 4-5 boys’ and girls’ classes. Each room is equipped with two or more teachers dedicated to serving your family each week. We teach a bible-based curriculum each week with age appropriate lessons.
Our department is equipped to meet the needs of each child group by providing facilities made specifically for small children. Each room is located near or contains a restroom made for children only. Each room also contains age appropriate toys and activities. During your child’s time in our department they will be able to play in our (square footage) indoor playground designed specifically for children aged 1-5.
Safety is one of our top priorities at Heritage. That is why each children’s worker is screened and background checked before entering our department. We always keep a rule of two; meaning two or more teachers are always present with children. We train all our teachers with appropriate safety procedures and have plans for tornado, fire, and shelter in place as well as first aid. Our church employs a uniformed officer during all service times as well as a security team that patrols the hallways. In addition to these safety procedures, we also have a paging system to alert parents if they are needed during the service.
