We are honored that you trust us with your youngest treasures. We make it our top priority to a provide a safe and secure environment where your child can learn the love of God through exploration, play and music.
We use Gospel Light's curriculum "Baby Beginnings" which was created specifically for nursery age children. We strive to partner with parents in helping the youngest in the Kingdom take their first steps toward God.
Safety and Security
Your child's safety is important to us at Main Street. All of our trained staff and volunteers go through a thorough application process that includes a criminal background check and verified reference check.
When you bring your preschooler to Main Street, you will be asked to register your child at our Sign-In table. We need some basic information about your sweet little one, so that we can give him/her excellent care. Your preschooler will receive a uniquely numbered sticker that is to be placed on his/her back, with a matching sticker for you. When you pick up your preschooler at the end of your worship experience, you will be asked to provide this sticker or a valid driver's license. If you are needed, we will text or call your cell phone. Your child's safety is our primary concern- children cannot learn unless they feel that they are in secure environment.

A few times a year we provide the opportunity for you to dedicate your infant during the Traditional or Contemporary Worship service. You choose a life verse for your child, which will be used to create a special scrapbook style dedication certificate. Your child will also receive a keepsake Bible with spaces for you to preserve special memories and mementos of their child's early years. Before the dedication, you will meet with the Pastor and Childrens Minister to discuss the service, and allow you to meet other families. Infant Dedication is special, because you are essentially entering into a covenant with Main Street Baptist Church. You are promising to raise your child to know Christ and committing your family to a local body of believers. We, in turn, promise to provide opportunities for faith growth for your entire family, to support you, pray for you and minister alongside you.
