The Backyard (4 to 5 Years Old)

The Backyard is our state-of-the-art preschool facility designed for children 3-5 years old (pre-kindergarten). The Backyard is open during every service. The Backyard offers exciting and innovative ways for your child to connect with God, friends, and loving volunteers.

Come check out our play area featuring a tree house with a slide and play centers filled with fun toys and games. Your child will also enjoy custom designed rooms for activities like crafts, snacks, and praise & worship. Learning time is always an adventure in the Backyard. Fun characters, hands-on illustrations, and creative storytelling engage kids in the process of growing in God's Word!

The spiritual development & safety of each child is of primary concern at First NLR!


Our General Policies:

The Backyard open 30 minutes prior to each service/event.

Children are to be brought to the check-in counter by a parent/guardian and will only be released to the parent/guardian with a Parent Pick-Up Sticker.

Parents/Guardians should come for their children immediately following the service or event they have attended.

Please see that items belonging to your child are properly and clearly labeled.

Toddlers will be provided with a snack and water/lemonade.  Time and circumstances do not allow for any other type of feeding.

We try everything in our abilities to calm an upset child for up to 15 minutes.  After that, we will call the parent/guardian. That time frame can be catered for each family until the child feels comfortable staying in the Backyard.
