In addition to leading this ministry, Ms. Dana is a well respected dermatologist here in Lexington. She is married to Richard Black, and together they have two children.
On Sunday mornings, our automated registration system is located at the Preschool desk area. First time visitors are asked to complete a form to receive an authorization code and answer a few general questions (Allergies, etc.). Registration only occurs once. Upon returning the following Sunday you will simply enter the authorization code in the kiosk to sign in your child.
Upon registration a sticker is printed out that you will place on your child's back. The parent will have a matching sticker that they will turn in at the end of service to pick up the child and their possessions.
Should we need you during the service you will either be sent a text message or someone from the preschool ministry will locate you in the auditorium.
Our preschool is divided into two classes. We keep the children separated by age and ability for the safety of the children.
Once children begin Kindergarten, they are promoted to the children's ministry Sunday School.
For security and safety we require only parents and/or guardian to drop off children. Teachers are prepared to help preschoolers transition away from parents. All room are equipped with security cameras. Parents can be assured their child transitioned well to their classroom by watching on the monitor in the foyer, outside of the preschool. Our church has several CPR trained volunteers.
For security purposes we ask that only background checked volunteers be permitted into the classrooms. Upon picking up your child, please show your security tag to the registration worker to enter the preschool coridors. When you arrie at the class, knowck on the door and give your secirty tag to the teacher.
We aspire to maintain a clean and safe environment for the children. At the conclusion of each Sunday service rooms are disinfected, toys are cleaned, trash is removed, and any broken toys are removed immediately.
