At Oasis Church, our children environments take church to an all-new level, making it fun and creative so they can enjoy every moment learning about Jesus. Weekly, kids get involved in a wide range of exciting, and age-appropriate activities. Music, drama, videos and storytelling capture the imagination in our large group setting – Discovery Land.
Around here we strive to make the greatest impact on the spiritual life of every child. We do this by intentionally establishing a partnership with parents. The church is represented by the color yellow and the home by the color red. When combined, they create a more vibrant color… Orange. Orange connects parents and leaders with the same strategy and same end goal!
Wonderland INCITES WONDER in the heart of a preschooler
Our curriculum is designed so that each preschooler will grow up believing 3 basic truths:
"God made me"
"God loves me"
"Jesus wants to be my friend forever"
Discoveryland is a fun, safe and age-appropriate environment. Music, drama, videos and storytelling capture the imagination in a large group setting,
while creative small group activities – games, special projects, arts and crafts – give them time to share their individual thoughts and questions with a devoted leader.
In partnership with parents, we lay a spiritual foundation that each child can build on throughout their life through these 3 basic truths:
"I need to make the wise choice." (Wisdom)
"I can trust God no matter what." (Faith)
"I should treat others the way I want to be treated." (Friendship)

Do you have programs for Children or just child care?
We have special programs that are designed for age appropriate activities for your children.
What age do you accept Children?
We have classes from birth to 5th grade during all services.
Do you have Special Needs Classes?
We don’t have specific classes but if you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we will be glad to see how we can serve you.
What will my child be doing while they are in an Oasis Kids experience?
Your child will have a time of worship, games, skits, teaching time, and small groups.
What security procedures do you have in place?
We have a detailed check-In/check out process where each parent is left with a unique pick up tag. Should anything arise, your family number will appear on the big screen in Auditorium.
What happens if I go to pick up my child and I have lost my pick up tag?
The teacher will call for the Children’s Director who will check your identification and release your child to you.
Are your volunteers background checked?
Yes, all volunteers fill out an application and complete a background check. Also, all volunteers have to shadow in a classroom for three weeks before serving as a teacher, assistant or substitute teacher.
Do you feed the children snacks?
We serve goldfish, cheese balls, animal cookies for our toddlers, preschool and Kindergarten classes. Please let us know if you child has any food restrictions.
What is your policy on discipline?
Our policy states that teachers provide constant supervision of all children in their care and that no child will be permitted to exhibit behavior, which could endanger himself or herself or another child. This will be accomplished by preventative measures taken by the volunteers and by separating children from the group when necessary. Other methods to control behavior that may be employed by the teachers include: a discussion with the child concerning the appropriate behavior, providing an alternative activity for the child, or contacting the parent when a behavioral issue can’t be resolved. The emphasis will be on appropriate behavior, which the child should exhibit. If a child is separated from the group he/she should not be removed for any longer than 1 minute per year of child's life (ex: 2 year old = 2 minutes)
What age does a volunteer have to be to work in a room?
Teachers must be at least 18 years or older. Classroom assistants must be at least 12 years old (6th grade) or older. Infant teachers must be at least 21.
Can the teacher give my child medication?
Unfortunately we cannot administer any medication under any circumstances.
