SCA Kids provides a fun and safe, age-appropriate environment for children ages birth through 5th grade. Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights feature a fully staffed nursery, preschool classes, and school age classes. Nursery and child care may be provided for other events; see specific event announcements for details. Our goal is to partner with parents to help their children encounter Jesus and grow in a great, life-long relationship with Him!
 
Here at SCA, we know that safety and security are very important to every parent. All of our staff and volunteers must have an initial and subsequent periodic background checks that fulfill Pennsylvania state requirements and are trained according to SCA’s policies and procedures for working with minors. In addition, the doors to our children’s wing are locked during the service. Parents and others authorized can enter the wing by pressing the button at the door to summon an usher.

Nursery

Sundays: ages birth through 23 months
Wednesday nights: ages birth through 2 years

 
SCA Kids nursery provides a safe and nurturing environment where babies are loved and cared for by a dedicated staff of volunteers. Classrooms are specially equipped and staffed to meet the needs of infants, crawlers, and walkers. The nursery is available Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights and for special services and events as announced.
 
First-time Visitors: When a child comes to SCA Kids nursery for the first time, a staff member will take the child’s basic information and any special instructions that will help in caring for the child. The parent and child will each receive a security card with a matching 3-digit code. After dropping off a child, parents can relax and enjoy the service, knowing that their little one is well cared for. If a parent is needed, the 3-digit number on the security card will be displayed on the monitors on either side of the platform. The security card is used to pick up a child at the end of the service. Note that children will not be released to family members under the age of 18.

Preschool

Sundays: ages 2 through pre-K
Wednesday nights: ages 3 through pre-K

 
SCA Kids preschoolers have a fun time learning about Jesus. Children love worship time, crafts, interactive Bible stories, and playtime with our experienced and energetic staff. The main goal of Sunday morning and Wednesday night classes is to help each child begin a vibrant, life-long relationship with Jesus!
