Move Up Sunday in CP Kids is just around the corner and we want to be sure you are well prepared for some changes ahead for your family. Below you will find information specific to each age group. These changes will take place on Move-Up Sunday, August 19th.
We believe it is never too early to begin sharing the love of Jesus with the littlest of His children! Our CP Kids Crew members are ready to welcome friends to the rooms listed below at the start of service.
NURSERY (6 WEEKS - 18 MONTHS)
In our nursery, your little one will be surrounded by songs about Jesus and will get to experience age-appropriate guided play activities to introduce them to our amazing God!
TODDLERS (19 MONTHS - 2 YEARS) ROOM 124
Each week in the toddler room your child will enjoy age-appropriate Bible stories, songs, crafts, and activities that point to basic Gospel truths and the amazing love of Jesus. If your child will be 3 years old by Sep 1, 2018, they will move up to our (GEN)erate 3’s class in room 126.
As your child grows, they will still experience age-appropriate Bible stories, songs, crafts, and activities, but now with the added experience of worshipping with our church family. After worship, children will be dismissed to their environments for the (GEN)erate hour. Our CP Kids Crew members are ready to welcome kids at (GEN)erate dismissal time.
3’S (ROOM 126)
If your child’s birthday falls between 9/2/2014 - 9/1/2015 they will be moving to our 3’s class in Room 126. If your child will be 4 years old by Sep 1, 2018, they will move up to our (GEN)erate 4’s class in Room 128.
4’S & PRE-K (ROOM 128)
If your child’s birthday falls between 9/2/2013 - 9/1/2014 they will be moving to our 4’s class in Room 128. If your child is attending a Pre-K class at school in the 2018-2019 school year, they will also meet in Room 128. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
ENTERING KINDERGARTEN (KIDZONE ROOM 121)
If your child is entering Kindergarten in Fall 2018, they will move to our Elementary (GEN)erate experience! This is an exciting change for your child, and here are some things to expect:
Your child will now start attending Large Group with the K-3rd graders in the KidZone, and from there will meet with a small group of Kindergarten and 1st graders in their small group classroom (Room 121). We do not allow outside toys, food, or drinks during (GEN)erate, so please prepare your child in advance.
K- 5TH GRADE
All kids currently attending K-5th (GEN)erate will advance to the next grade level for their (GEN)erate time. Large group gatherings are grouped as follows: K-3rd (KidZone), 4th & 5th (Room 130). Small Groups are as follows: K-1st grade (Room 121), 2nd - 3rd grade (Room 125), and 4th-5th grade (Room 130).
ENTERING MIDDLE SCHOOL
If your child is entering the 6th grade in Fall 2018, they will be moving on to Middle School Youth in the Youth Commons. For questions about Middle School Ministry, please email email@example.com
WHAT YOU CAN DO AS PARENTS:
Spend some time talking with your child about Move-Up to prepare them for the changes ahead.
Brainstorm with your child a creative way to say thank you to their classroom or small group leader! These volunteer leaders care deeply about your child and have been an instrumental part of the last year!
We know transitions can be hard and sometimes scary for kids. Our leaders are prepared to ease any anxiety of transitioning into a new room. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-398-6464.
