Let the little children come to me
We firmly believe the first two years of life are of unparalleled importance in building character, love and a positive response within a child to Jesus Christ and the church. It is a privilege for us to partner with you in this new beginning. We promise to provide a clean, safe and high-quality learning environment every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., in order to begin the spiritual development of your child.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kelly Matthews, Sprout Coordinator ( firstname.lastname@example.org).

Frequently Asked Questions
How old does my child have to be to start coming into Sprout?
Our recommendation is that your child is at least six weeks old prior to bringing him or her to Sprout.
What security measures are followed in Sprout?
All children must be accompanied to their rooms by a parent or adult guardian and will only be released to the parent or guardian who has the Quicklink parental receipt. If a Quicklink receipt is lost, your child’s teacher will ask to see your picture ID/driver’s license before the child is released. Only adults can pick up a child from their room.
What can I do as a parent to make our child’s first time in Sprout a positive experience?
For a child’s first experience in Sprout to be happy and meaningful, the major responsibility is in the hands of his or her parents. It is best for one parent to bring the child to his room and leave him at the door. Please do not enter the room unless you have a sleeping child. As your child begins to walk, allow him to walk into his room. This builds confidence and independence.
If you forget something and must return to the hallway before services ends, please find the Sprout Coordinator rather than returning to the room. She will assist you as needed. Avoid letting your child see you because this may trigger his or her inner clock to think it’s time to go.
What will my child experience in Sprout on Sunday mornings?
While your child is in our Sprout environment, he or she will enjoy a variety of experiences. These will include Bible stories, craft time and planned activities in our center areas. Your child will enjoy books, puzzles, home living, blocks and music. Our classes are staffed with dedicated adults who are actively involved in your child’s learning. Our goal is to provide a loving, encouraging environment for your child.
