Infants and Toddlers (Ages Birth - 36 Months)

Welcome to the Grace Church TOT Garden! We provide a fun, Christ-centered environment for ages: birth - 36 months in order to give parents a chance to enjoy our Sunday and Wednesday services and classes.  Our TOT Garden is open during every service on Sundays and Wednesdays.  Please visit our events calendar to check the TOT Garden availability during special events and holiday services.

Check-In Procedures

We know that getting children settled in a classroom can be overwhelming, but we want to make the process quick and stress-free!  The TOT Garden Welcome Desk is located on the main level and we have a team of volunteers at the main entrances to help you find it.  Once you arrive, our welcome team will help you check your child into the designated room and get them settled.

Upon check-in the system will print out a sticky label to put on your little one's back along with a claim ticket that you will present to the teacher to pick up your child at the end of service.   

Safety is of the utmost importance to our staff and we ask a few things of you as we work to keep your child safe and happy. 

  • We ask that all items be labeled with your child's

This helps us ensure your child is getting the items you packed for them and it also ensures we safely return your items to you.

  • Please alert the caretakers of any allergies.

List any allergies in our check in system so they will appear on your child's sticker at check in each week, but we also ask that you mention food allergies to your child's teacher when you drop him or her off.   

  • Please, no peanuts.

Due to allergies concerns, we provide grahamcrackers, animal crackers, or vanilla wafers and water for snack.  You are welcome to provide your child a different snack, but we have a strict “no peanut” policy.

TOT Garden Safety & Health

Great care is taken for safety and health procedures to ensure the well being of your child. Our child-to-worker ratio is maintained as closely as possible. A minimum of two caregivers oversee each room.
