Loving arms await the littlest of our Wayzata Free Church family in our nurseries. In the Infant Room, we provide a soothing environment with quiet worship music, two crib/nursing rooms and plenty of crawl space. In the Waddlers Room, toddlers (up to age two) are surrounded by playful worship music, read Bible stories and enjoy a prayer and snack. 


Our Sunday preschool classes begin at age 2, or when kids are ready for more structure. We offer fun, Bible-based programs where kids discover God's love, using a unique curriculum called "First Look."

  • Preschool Green | 101 (kids who are at least 2 years old)
  • Preschool Red | 102 (kids who are 3 years old by December 31, 2019)
  • Preschool Yellow | 104 (kids who are beginning Kindergarten in fall 2020)


“First Look” is designed to give preschoolers their first impression of their loving heavenly Father. This program uses learning centers, activities, games, music and crafts to teach kids about God's Word. Our focus is to help a child by age 5, to believe: God made me, God loves me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever


“First Look” truly are experts in area of "take home" options for your family. About once a month we have parent cue cards for you to help you engage in what your kids are learning in their preschool classrooms on Sunday. You can also check out their Parent Cue app available at the Apple App Store or Android Market!

252 Kids is a large group/small group style program. It is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Throughout the time elementary kids spend in 252 Kids, we will cover 150 key Bible stories, focus on four faith skills and cover and review 30 themes (practical applications of God's Truth). Every lesson and resource we offer helps kids discover who Jesus is and then shows them how to put their faith into practical action. 252 Kids is dedicated to helping kids grow in wisdom, faith and friendship. 

Everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of three basic but powerful truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.

+ 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
