HGBC Nursery & Pre-school Ministry

Thank you for Visiting!!!

Preschoolers and their families are important to us at Higher Ground. First time visitors will need to report to the Nursery Desk in the Nursery area to complete an information card. Once you have completed the information card a nursery volunteer will show you to your child's classroom.  You will sign your child in on a number and take the lanyard with the coordinating number. Next you will fill out a name tag for your child to be placed on them.   If you are needed during the service, your child’s number will be displayed on the monitors located above the front exit signs in the Worship Center. 

We cordially invite you to visit with us!!!

Before you bring your child to the Nursery…

  • Pack a bag with any supplies your child needs. We ask that each toddler bring their own “sippy” cup with lid labeled with their name. Clearly label all bottles, pacifiers, blankets, & personal effects.
  • Pre-mix all formula. 
  • Write out any special instructions for the caregivers.
  • We regularly serve healthy snacks & juice. Please remember to let us know if your child has any allergies.

Nursery Policies & Procedures

We encourage parents of nursery age children to volunteer by serving on a team rotation once every 5 weeks, once your preschooler begins attending regularly. We value our volunteers and welcome you to our ministry! In accordance with the child protection policy, all parents & volunteers will be screened & your personal references are checked.

Preschool WORSHIP

This ministry is provided during morning worship for 3 & 4 year olds in the nursery. We participate in worship, story, activities & of course snack time. We would love to have your child join us for a great time of WORSHIP - preschool style!
