Preschool Ministry

We believe that children from the youngest of age not only need to be well cared for, but also need to be and can be taught about our Great God.

Health and Wellness

For the protection of your child and the other children attending our Preschool Ministry, parents are asked not to bring a child who appears to be ill.  A child should not be brought to the Preschool if they have the following:
* Diarrhea, vomiting or fever within the past 24 hours (Most pediatricians recommend a child be free of these symptoms  for at least 24 hours before allowing them to attend a Preschool classroom.)
Thick, green, yellow or constant nasal drainage
* Croup or a persistent cough
* Strep Throat
* Drainage or redness in the eyes that could possibly be considered conjunctivitis (“pinkeye”) or other eye infection
* An unexplained rash
* Ringworm or impetigo
* Any symptom of childhood disease such as Chickenpox, Whooping Cough, Scarlet Fever, or Mumps
* Any communicable disease

During the cold and flu season (usually December to February), parents are asked to please be especially cautious about bringing a child with a runny nose or persistent cough.

For the safety of your child, Preschool teachers, paid workers, and volunteers are NOT allowed to administer any prescription or over-the-counter medications.  If a child needs medicine, a parent must return to the room to administer it.  For the safety of all our preschoolers, parents are also asked not to have prescription or non-prescription medications in their child’s diaper bag.

We also ask that parents notify the teacher or Director of Children’s Ministry of any allergies their child may have.

If your child develops a fever or other symptoms of illness, you will be paged to your child’s classroom.

If your child develops an infectious disease such as Chickenpox after being in the preschool, please contact the Children’s Director at (706)541-1086 immediately so that other parents may be notified if necessary.  You many also email the Children’s Director at

In order to ensure our Preschool is clean and safe for your child, we disinfect all toys that have been played with.  Tubs are located in each room for “Dirty Toys” and “Dirty Cups.”  Used cups and toys that have been put in the mouth should be placed in the tubs during each class.  Crib sheets are used by one child only and then placed in the dirty laundry.  Disposable gloves are used for diapering and hands are washed with soap and water after each diaper change.  Changing pad surfaces are disinfected after each diaper change.

All of our preschool rooms are vacuumed and cleaned after each use.  Preschool carpets are cleaned quarterly and all preschool rooms are regularly inspected for safety hazards and health concerns.
