Thank you for trusting us to care for your child!
Braeside Kids runs Sunday mornings (Sept – June) during our regular church service, 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., for children ages 3 to Grade 5. Our fun, hands-on classes are designed to engage each child in meaningful, age-appropriate worship as we hear, tell and live God’s story together!
Nursery (six months to age 3)
We provide a large nursery area where parents/caregivers may spend time with their children. It includes age-appropriate toys, books, table and chairs, and a child-size washroom and change table.
Preschool (Age 3 – Kindergarten)
Our smallest Braesiders have a lot of energy! This fun, hands-on class helps them use all of their senses to learn about Jesus through Bible stories, songs, crafts and activities.
Elementary (Grade 1 – Grade 5)
These kids ask tons of questions and are full of wonder about the world around them. Experiential learning helps them get started on their life-long journey of knowing, loving and following Jesus!
