What To Expect
From the moment you arrive their will be people to great you with smiling faces and show you the way! Your first stop will be the first-time check in station next to the information desk in the foyer. We will take the time then to get to know you and your family. This is the time we will ask about allergies, any special instructions we need to take care of your child and collect contact information.
You will then receive a set of stickers with matching codes which allows us to keep your kids safe and no one but you can pick up your kid without this sticker. If for any reason during the service we need to reach you, we have your number on file and can send you a text or our preschool pastor will personally come notify you.
After you check in you will be guided to our preschool first impressions member to answer any additional questions you may have and show you to your classes and what else to do along the way.
Preschoolers love to show adults how BIG they are..."Look at my BIG muscles! Look how BIG I can jump! Look at this BIG bite!"
We don't have to teach a preschooler to show how big they are. And, if we're all honest, there's something deep inside us that wants to do something big, too. We want to show the world that we can do things that matter -- things that really matter. Could it be that we were all made to do big things? We think so.
That is why we have planned an entire month around what being a Super Kid really looks like---doing the things God made us to do. God made us to do BIG things!

We take the safety of your child very seriously! Every adult in our classrooms has been interviewed, carefully trained, and has a current background check on file. In addition, we have trained security officers and procedures at all times. Once on the other side of the glass doors, your kids safety is our type priority and you can rest well that they are in good hands. The claim check code you receive at check-in is unique to your family and provides extra security at pickup.
we recognize from time to time that a parent will want to stay and see what a service is like for their children before leaving them for the first time and not only do we allow this, but we welcome it. We have visitor passes available at the check in station for parent’s that want to do this, and it is necessary to check in for the safety of others and so the students know who their teachers are as well as what procedures to follow.
when kids are sick and unable to attend class or just want to stay with you in service, we have Busy Boxes available for them and you to keep them preoccupied during service, so you can enjoy your time here! Check out our sick policy for more information (link)
The nursery is a place for new moms/nursing moms can go during the service for privacy and comfort.
Summit Heights does not currently have an active special needs ministry but does have special needs buddies that can be paired with your child when you wish to attend church. This is currently offered on a case by case basis and we would want to have any all information we would need to properly attend to your child. Every child matters to us and deserves to learn about Jesus and their Heavenly Father on their level and we want you to know that you are welcome here and Jesus loves you!
we have a playground for our kids 3 years old to 5th grade. Weather permitting, we allow the teachers to take their kids to the playground at the end of their lessons if time allows and at their discretion. The playground is gated and only accessible through the generations wing.
We encourage families to keep the conversation going after church is over and as the week goes on. Ask your kids if they had fun and about what they learned! Our goal is to have a positive answer to both of those questions each week and we would love to hear back on those special moments! Check out the Kid Venture Preschool Information Board in the Generations Hallway for up to date information and resources for your child.
