"Whoever welcomes a child in my name welcomes me." ~Matthew 18:5
At Talbot Park Baptist Church, we take seriously Jesus' call to welcome all children in his name. Because of that commitment, we seek to provide an atmosphere for our children that is safe, fun, and nurturing. We believe that even from the earliest ages, children are capable of learning about God and experiencing love. For that reason, our children's classes and activities are more than just babysitting time; they are opportunities for children to explore and to engage in the world in which God has placed them. We are intentional about including children in our worship services. They sing, pray, and read Scripture regularly. Every week, we provide a nursery during worship for children, infants - age 3. Every summer, we collaborate with the Episcopal Church of the Ascension to put on Vacation Bible School.
Talbot Park Baptist Preschool also meets in our facilities. Classes are available for children 6 weeks old - age 5. Preschool hours are Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Before and after care is available from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. There is a flat rate monthly fee for children under age two. For children two and older, there are part-time options available. Children may attend 2 days per week (Tues./Thurs.); 3 days per week (Mon./Wed./Fri.) or 5 days. The oldest Pre-K class is a five day class only.
