Infant Nursery: Infants through 18 month olds are cared for and loved by members of Derby Friends each week. They experience God’s love for them during this time through playtime, by being held and being read to.
Toddler Nursery: We recognize that 18 month to 3 year olds are becoming more active and need some extra space to move around. Our toddlers gather together to interact with one another, play games, share a snack and hear a story from the Bible.
Pre-K: Our 4 and 5 year olds have the opportunity to engage with God’s word through not only hearing but also by being able to incorporate crafts and activities that help the story come to life. They are reminded that Jesus loves them deeply and he wants to be their friend.
Elementary: Kindergarten through 5th grade students are encouraged to foster a love for God’s word and a desire to know him in a personal way. They learn the power of what Jesus has done for them through the gift of salvation and how that impacts their life as his follower.
