Children

Time in for Parents
Nursery

Childcare

Newborn - Age 3

Located in the Christian Education Building, families can drop children off in room 104 for childcare during the Sunday services. Children play with each other and with age appropriate toys and games. The childcare classroom is run by qualified and vetted staff.

Hours: 8am-11am (effective 9/15/19)

Sunday School

Ages 3 - 5th Grade

At Sunday School, the children’s ministry team engages kids with Bible lessons, multi-media activities and play. They learn how to apply the lessons of the Bible to their own daily lives. Children are excused from each of the 10AM services to the Sunday School classrooms in the Christian Education Building. Parents pick up children after the service from the classrooms. Sunday School teachers are vetted and supported by the church.

Baptism

Baptism is the sign and seal of our incorporation into Jesus Christ. It is God’s gift of grace and calls us to respond to that grace. It marks the new beginning of new life in Christ. It unites us with Christ and one another. Baptisms are open to children of PCW members.

Time Out for Parents (TOPS)

Time Out for Parents (TOPS) offers parents time to recharge for a few hours one to three mornings per week. Families feel secure that their children (ages six months to two years) are in a caring and safe environment where children develop basic social skills and confidence.  Similar to the Presbyterian Nursery School & Kindergarten (PNSK) program, children engage with peers in a fun, play-based learning environment. Operated by The Presbyterian Church in Westfield (PCW) since 1982, TOPS is fully licensed by the State of New Jersey.
