CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES
 
1. DAY NURSERY SCHOOL
 
Purpose
Our purpose is to provide a stimulating environment in which children between the ages of 18 mos. thru 4 years old can grow, play and learn together.  We recognize that each child is a unique person, with his/her own personality and pattern of development.  In a relaxed atmosphere, emphasis is placed on the individual child's natural growth and need.  It is our desire to broaden each child's cognitive, emotional, social and physical development to make a smooth transition from the home to future life experiences.  Through group exercises, the child is able not only to develop his/her ability to relate to their classmates, but also to promote respect and concern for others.  We hope to create the nurturing circumstances to enable young people to grow through Christian Living experiences.
 
History
Our Nursery School has been serving the community since its creation in 1965.  The school is endorsed by the Church Administration Board and is governed by a Nursery School Board of Directors composed of church members.
 
Professional Staff
We have a qualified and educated staff of certified Head Teachers and experienced Assistant teachers.  All teachers are certified in Infant/Child First Aid and CPR by the American Heart Association.  Our Director is a certified teacher and a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
 
Our Program
A well-rounded program designed to stimulate the child creatively, socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally is planned daily.  Children are exposed to a variety of art media, dramatic play, blocks, table toys, music, circle and story time within a center structured classroom.  We have an outdoor playground and indoor large motor areas.  We enjoy parties, cooking, science and many enrichment activities, including several walking distance field trips.  We hope you come and enjoy our FUN!
For further information, please contact our Director, Diane Mormino at (516) 293-9078.

2. WEEKLY CHURCH SCHOOL

Farmingdale United Methodist Sunday School invites your child to join us in learning about Christ.

What we do...

The Farmingdale United Methodist Sunday School offers an extensive program that involves all the children in our church and helps them to know and love Christ.

We offer six different age group classes to accommodate Pre-K through 12th grade students.  Each class is taught by two teachers with curriculum appropriate for the age level of their students.  Children attend  church  with their families and are dismissed to their classes for the remainder of the service after the opening prayer and hymn. 

Our Pre-K program is offered to children ages birth through 5 years old while their parents are in the church service.  This class, taught by two teachers and an assistant, exposes the children to God through stories, felt board activities, crafts and other child friendly and age appropriate experiences.

Our Sunday School students are engaged in many activities throughout the year. During advent the Sunday School students participate in a Christmas pagaent typically following a potluck dinner. We offer Lenten programs in the spring and a Vacation Bible School program during the summer.

Our Sunday School helps others by participating in food drives for our own Soup Group as well as the St. Killians food pantry.  We have raised money for Habitat for Humanity to build houses locally and Heifer International which provides a means for people all over the world to support themselves and feed their families.

No one is too young to learn or know God's love and grow in the love of Christ.  We are blessed to have a community of faith that is committed to growing fully devoted Christ-followers...
