Babies Through Preschool
Each time you bring your children to their class, know that they will receive quality care. All volunteers must complete an application and undergo a background check. We also maintain a Rule of Three, meaning that there are always two volunteers in each class so no child is left alone with an adult. You can be confident that they are cared for, prayed for and instructed in the ways of God.
Our classes are a parent-cooperative program involving every parent as well as other volunteers and teachers. We ask that each parent serve once every two months to help keep our classes properly staffed and “teacher to child” ratios balanced. All volunteers must complete an application and undergo a background check. You can be confident that you are leaving your child in a nurturing environment with qualified teachers and assistants.
Our teachers offer a variety of engaging activities using our newly updated curriculum. First Look is a web based curriculum that gives children their first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for them. Learning and having fun go hand in hand at Preschool Pathway. We also have a large indoor play place that your child will enjoy climbing and sliding on!
If you are interested in sharing God’s love and working with young children, join our Preschool volunteer team! Call us at 763-754-1011 to start the application process. We are always looking for quality people to provide quality care!

Safety and Pick-Up
Our pager system also works as our security system. When you check in at one of our Kiosks, choose a pager and input the pager number into the computer. You may use the same pager for multiple children. If we need to contact you at any point during the service, you will receive a short message and your pager will vibrate. If you are paged, please come back to Preschool Pathway immediately.
Baby Land Zoo is for some of our littlest children. Walking to 2 1/2 years will be in a safe fun environment where children hear the basics about God and the Bible.
Nursing Mothers – For your convenience, we have rooms designated for nursing mothers. During 1st Service, mothers are welcome to use the Pre-School Park classroom to nurse. During our 2nd Service, the Nursing Mother’s room is available.
Diaper Changing Station – There are changing stations in both men’s and women’s restrooms, as well as Baby Land and the Nursing Mother’s room.
Toddler Town is loads of fun for our 2 1/2 and 3 year olds. There are lots of things to do and see in this room as they learn about God.
Preschool Park teachers use hands-on object lessons to teach young children about God’s Word.
Diaper Changing – Our volunteers can and will change diapers for children in Baby Land Zoo. However, men are not allowed to change any diapers. If your child is in another room and needs a diaper change, we will page you.
Bed Linens – Bed linens are washed after every use.
Equipment/Toys – Toys, walkers, tables, mats and other equipment are sanitized weekly.
Rooms – All rooms and bathrooms are thoroughly cleaned twice weekly.
Sick Children - Because our children play closely together in the rooms, we want to make sure we maintain a healthy environment for them. We cannot accept children into any of our rooms who are sick or have received medication in the last 24 hours. If the staff feels that your child is not well, you will be notified to pick up your child. If your child has a continually clear-runny nose or rash due to non-contagious allergies, please let us know.
Snacks - We are happy to feed your baby his or her bottle upon request, but we do not feed children anything other than the snack listed beside the door where your child will enter. Please notify the staff if your child should NOT have a snack or if they are allergic to anything.
