Starters (for three-to-five-year olds) meets in the Pre-School room in Church House during the Sunday 10am Family Service.
The children enjoy a variety of activities – singing, games, craft and Bible stories and a drink and snack.
Parents can stay with their children to help them settle in – this usually takes very little time!
The setting of the pre-school room helps the children feel ‘at home’. We use mainly Scripture Union ‘Light’ material which tailors the sessions according to the children’s age.
Parents are expected to collect their children after the end of the service.
Starters is staffed by a dedicated team of volunteer leaders and helpers who have a lot of experience of working with children. They have all been DBS (formerly CRB) checked.
Children stay in Starters until the end of their Reception year at school. They are then invited to move up to Followers.
