Teaching Staff

Our teachers at Nazarene Preschool play a pivotal role in building a child’s success academically, socially, and emotionally. They design academic activities to meet the needs of each child in his/her classroom, while encouraging socialization and imaginary play. Many of our teachers have been on our staff for 10+ years, welcoming younger siblings and sometimes the children of former students! We are thankful for and proud of our teaching team.

Naz Kids

Naz Kids combines the light of the church and the love of the home to help children up to fifth grade know, love, and serve God.

Elementary

Naz Kids 1st-5th grade kids worship God through singing songs, hearing a story from the Bible, then dividing into age-based small groups to apply what we learn to our lives. 

Preschool

Naz Kids Age 3-Kindergarten is called “Clubhouse” and is a place for exploration where our kids hear stories from the Bible, make arts and crafts, discuss and pray, and do activities that help them know who God is. 

Toddler

Our toddlers learn what the love of God means for them, hearing simple truths and stories from the Bible, learning who God is as we explore and play together. 

Nursery

Our Nursery volunteers show each child who God is by the way they love and care, tenderly caring for each child, loving them in the same way that God has loved us. 

At Home Resources

Each month we update our app with age-specific Parent Cues to help create conversations that follow weekly themes. Here is an example of these great resources.
