River Kidz is a jungle adventure in the natural setting of God’s beauty. In River Kidz, children have fun learning about God and His will for their lives!  Our trained and approved teachers are eager to fill your children with the word of God and a desire for a personal relationship with Him. 

NURSERY (Newborn - Preschool)

We have child care for children starting at newborn to pre-school in our nursery area. This staff is specially trained and dedicated with a passion for this age children. 

At River of Praise we believe that first impressions are important. That’s why we use the Orange Curriculum, First Look, to give preschool children a first impression of their loving heavenly Father. Through this teaching, we keep it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. It also helps children understand worship and introduces them to small group time.  Check out this video that explains "First Look."

We encourage children to talk to God any time at any place. Our activities tickle all the senses making mastering the concepts a blast. Crazy fun activities to crafts to large group Bible story and worship time to small group Bible time; it’s all part of the plan to help all the RiverKidz believe three key things by the time he or she is five years old

1st -5th

For grades kindergarten - fifth, we utilize the 252 Basics curriculum. When you see the word “basics” in the title, well, you sort of think foundational, essential, right? That’s what 252 Basics does—through this teaching the ROP RiverKidz staff equips kids from kindergarten through fifth grade with basic truths. In fact, when a student transitions into middle school, we hope that child has experienced the three basic truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52

(light bulb moment—now you know what the 252 means):  

 •I need to make the wise choice.  

•I can trust God no matter what.  

•I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
