We offer play days Monday through Friday in the nursery classrooms in the Sanctuary. Your child will enjoy crafts, outdoor play, stories, and fun in a Christian environment while you get some time for yourself! Children will be divided by age group in order to provide age-appropriate activities.

Tuition is $500 for 5 days, $340 for 3 days, $260 for 2 days per month.

If your child will be two years or older by September 1, Bright Beginnings Early School offers excellent two and three day programs for ages 2 through 5. Children in play day receive preference in enrollment at Bright Beginnings, and we work very closely with Bright Beginnings for a successful transition to preschool.

Please contact Early Childhood Ministry Coordinator Christina Shelbourne at (239) 482-1250 ext. 242 or with any questions.

Infant and Child Baptism

Baptism is a divine act, a pledge and gift God gives to us. Baptism of children includes the reaffirmation of the vows of the baptismal covenant by parents, sponsors, and the congregation; but chiefly it celebrates what God is doing and will do in the life of the infant or child. If you are ready to lead your child into a life of discipleship to Jesus Christ, with the support of this church, contact the Director of Children’s Ministry.
