Nursery & Preschool Ministry

Berean Baptist Church > Nursery & Preschool Ministry

We welcome you to the nursery webpage of Berean Baptist Church. We thank God for each child that is placed in our care, and we understand the great responsibility and trust that each parent has bestowed on the nursery.

Our nurseries strive to provide a happy, healthy, and safe environment so that parents can worship confidently, knowing their children are well cared for.

Each nursery worker faithfully attends Berean Baptist Church, fills out an application including a background check, trains with a supervisor, and is teamed up with an experienced nursery worker. Volunteers are always teamed by two or more. Each room is equipped with age-appropriate toys, cribs, and rockers along with snacks chosen specifically for every age level.

If you are interested in serving in our nursery, please email our Nursery Director at amanda.schade@bbcfnc.org

Indoor Playground

The indoor playground at Berean Baptist Church consists of a three-story activity center with a slide and a special ”
Toddler Play Area” designed for children two and under. The indoor playground is available for open play before and after services and used for BBC children’s ministries.

Mothers Room

For your convenience, a Mothers Room is available for mothers with crying and/or nursing babies.  In this room, mothers can nurse, change diapers, or allow their children to play while watching or listening to the sermon through live stream.


Safety and Security:  Keeping Our Children Safe

To ensure the safety and security within our BBC Children’s Ministry, BBC has partnered with KidCheck to bring you the best experience at check-in. Every child sixth grade and younger must be checked in by a parent or guardian.

Guests, please come to the Children’s Ministry Check-in Area, and we will be glad to help you check in your child.

For those already in our BBC family and who have created a guardian account at go.kidcheck.com, you can quickly check in your children at one of the self-service kiosks at various locations using the following process:

  1. Find a check-in station.
  2. Enter the system by simply typing your ten-digit phone number.
  3. For each child you will be checking in, select each service that the child will attend.
  4. Select “Finish” at the bottom right of the screen. A child tag and a guardian receipt will print.
  5. Place the child’s tag on his/her back to be used as a sticker ID. Keep the guardian receipt with you. This receipt will be used at pick-up to grant admission into the Kids Zone and to authorize child pick-up.
  6. Make sure your cell phone is on “Vibrate.”
