Early Childhood

NH tots squareWelcome to NH Tots

We believe that with the love of Christ as a child’s foundation, there are no boundaries to their growth spiritually and in every other manner. We look forward to serving your child in a safe and welcoming environment as we learn about the love of Christ together.  NH tots serves children in three areas…

  • NH1 is the nursery. The nursery has a classroom for infants and crawlers, and a classroom for walkers.
  • NH2 is a classroom specifically for the two year old.
  • NH3-5 is for ages three through preschool (before they enter Kindergarten).


Childcare is provided in each of the above areas during all regular service times. Service times are:

  • Sunday morning at 8:00 am & 10:30 am
  • Sunday School at 9:15 am
  • Sunday at 6:00 pm
  • Wednesday at 6:30 pm
