Welcome to the Preschool Page


    Welcome! Our volunteer and staff of Bay Leaf Baptist Church Preschool Ministry would like to welcome your family.

    Our mission is to partner with parents as they disciple their children to develop a strong foundation for their faith. We strive to provide high quality programs offered in a clean, safe and loving environment.

    In each of our programs, we are laying the foundation for our children to take their first steps toward faith and salvation. Our goal at Bay Leaf is to influence our children for Christ, while instilling in them Christian values and principles. We want for them to learn and cherish God’s word in their heart. Our Lord expressed it best in Matthew 19:14 when He said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

    Security is a top priority at Bay Leaf. We have security measures in place to ensure your child will be safe while left in our care. When you arrive to your child’s class you will need to complete your contact information on the clipboard letting us know where you will be and a contact phone number. If there is an emergency we will contact you via text/phone. Please remember to have your cell phone on vibrate! You will also complete a security tag. There is a yellow or orange tag that has a specific number. One piece of the tag will go on your child and you will keep the other part. You will need to bring the claim tag with the matching number to pick up your child. If you do not have your tag, a pastor or the Preschool Director will have to approve the pick up. This is for the safety of all parties involved.

    What do I need to bring?

    If your child is in diapers or potty training, please bring an extra set of clothes in a bag for any accidents. All items must be labeled. If your child needs a bottle or Sippy cup, please provide that as well. We have a place that you can nurse your child if needed on Sunday mornings. If this is your first time dropping off your child and a special lovey is helpful, please feel free to bring that. We want this to be a positive experience for both you and your child.


    We are a PEANUT FREE preschool hall! We serve goldfish or cheerios’ and water during the 9:45 Sunday school hour. On the first Sunday of the month the older children are served doughnut holes. If your child is not able to have any of the following, please provide a snack from home that is peanut free. If your child does have an allergy, please make sure the volunteers are aware at the time of drop-off.

    Children with Special Needs

    We want you to know that every child is welcomed and loved at Bay Leaf Baptist Church. We will work with the parents to provide the level of care needed to ensure your child is cared for and loved while you are attending Church, Sunday school or a CLI Class. Please contact Keri Miller ( to discuss an individual plan for your child. In most cases we are able to allow your child to attend class with his/her peers but we will assign a shadow that will give the level of support needed. Our priority is for your child to be well cared for and shown the love of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

    We are always looking for volunteers that are willing to share the love of Jesus Christ to the little ones! We ask that members prayerfully consider serving in our ministry. Opportunities to serve are on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings (Worship Kidz Style and Choir), Wednesday night (AWANA) and VBS (in June). If God is calling you to serve, please contact Keri Miller, Preschool Ministry Director.

    All volunteers are required to complete a background check and have been faithfully attending 6 months or become a member of Bay Leaf Baptist Church.
