The nursery area, located in room 10, provides the youngest church attendees with a positive, happy church experience. The dedicated staff and excellent volunteer team strive to provide each child with a warm, nurturing environment. We provide “sacred childcare” for our youngest children providing an atmosphere of warmth, acceptance, and security.
Early Childhood Sunday School
Ages 3 – 5 years
Preschool children will attend church with their families through the children’s moment. Worship bags filled with quiet activities for children are available at the front entry. After the children’s moment, the children will be dismissed to their classroom, room 5. The curriculum is Scripture based and is taught in centers. There is a Bible story each week that is reinforced through play in a sensory center, block center, craft center and a dramatic play center. Children learn through play, listening and talking.
Elementary and Middle School Sunday School
Children will attend church with their families through the children’s moment during service. Worship bags filled with quiet activities for children are available at the front entry. After the children’s moment, kindergarten through 6th grade will be dismissed for a large group worship and learning experience in Guild Hall. The children come together for a multi media presentation with worship music, a feature presentation of the Bible story and memory verse memorization.
The children in kindergarten through 3rd grade stay in small groups in Guild Hall to continue their learning with a game to reinforce the Bible story, a life application activity, a Bible Memory game and a prayer time.

Elementary and Middle School Curriculum
The Indian Hill Church kindergarten through sixth grade uses the Kid Connection curriculum on Sunday mornings.
Kid Connection features a large group/small group format that is perfect for multi-age settings. Each session begins with worship time and a Bible story presentation for the whole group in Guild Hall. Then kids gather in small groups (K-3 and 4-6) to connect with their leaders and dive deeper into the lesson.
In the summer and fall, Old Testament stories are taught. We switch to New Testament stories on the first week of Advent until the last week in May. Using Kid Connection we take students in Kindergarten to Grade 6 through a sweep of the whole Old and New Testament twice, exploring 117 key stories for kids this age.
