Our goal is to equip parents to lead in the home and to teach kids to live radically passionate lives for Christ.
At Cloverdale Baptist Church kids are very important! We are committed to meeting their needs for love, security, understanding and acceptance in a world that is unstable, competitive and, too often, violent.
Our programs are kid-oriented, our volunteers are carefully chosen and screened, and our curriculum is Biblically sound. It is our privilege to care for your children here. Together, as a team, we are growing tomorrow’s leaders. Let’s give them the best. Let’s give them Jesus! After all, they are HIS kids!
Our clean and bright Nursery is staffed with qualified, screened and loving attendants and is set up for babies from infant to 24 months. It is our aim to provide a safe and happy environment. The nursery is divided into 2 age-specific areas:
The crawlers’ area for those children who are not yet walking.
The toddler area with equipment and space for those children who are sturdy on their feet.
The nursery is open during Discipleship Class at 9:00am and our worship services.
OUR NURSERY FEATURES:
- Secure check-in system at the Nursery desk (see Check-In/Check-Out for details)
- Safe volunteer/child ratios at all times
- Separate areas for crawlers and walkers
- Weekly disinfecting of toys
- Evacuation cribs in case of emergency
- Carefully screened volunteers who are excited to love on and care for your children
- A Mother’s Room is available in the Children’s Ministry area
Please note that our staff no longer diaper any babies, so if your child is needing a change, you will be contacted. Diaper change tables are available in each washroom.
All children ages 2 – 5 are invited to come experience our preschool ministries. Your children will love learning Bible stories from the Gospel Project curriculum taught by creative Bible teachers. The Pre-School Ministry is available each Sunday during the service. Kids spend the first few minutes in the Sanctuary and then are released at the beginning of offering time to head off to their classrooms (see below).
Loving, compassionate teachers build meaningful relationships through prayer, activities and interactive Bible learning. Your child will learn each week who God is and just how much he loves them! It is our goal that our families are equipped to partner with us to build the foundation towards a life-long relationship with Him.
Ages 2 – Room 112 (main floor)
Ages 3/4 – Room 242 (upstairs)
Ages 5 – Room 246 (upstairs)
Please see Check-In/Check-Out for details on our secure child check-in system.
Kids Connection is a fun and welcoming environment for kids from grades 1 through 6. This program is offered during the 10:30am Sunday Morning Service.

Kids spend the first few minutes in the Sanctuary, and then are released at the beginning of offering time. They will head to the gym for Open Session all together, before breaking off in their age-appropriate classrooms with their small group teachers to learn the lesson for the week in a small-group setting.

Child Dedication / Parent Commissioning
Our aim is to partner with each family as they provide spiritual direction for the children the Lord has blessed them with, and child dedication is part of the journey. Child Dedication / Parent Commissioning is a parents’ affirmation before the gathered church of their intent to lead and spiritually nurture their child to grow, in wisdom, stature, and love of our great God!
Next Class: To be announced.
