Here at Sarasota Baptist Church we believe that children should enjoy learning about Jesus.

Our Preschool Ministry offers care and Bible teaching for all preschoolers (birth through kindergarten} during both services. Our curriculum is constructed to meet the preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, emotionally, and socially.
Our teachers use a Biblical curriculum, games, songs, and crafts to help build a strong spiritual foundation. Preschoolers also have a praise and worship time in a large group setting every Sunday.
By the time the children move to the elementary program, they will have a strong foundation of Bible truths.


Sunday Mornings: 9:00am, 10:30am

We hope you are as excited as we are. Here are a few things to keep in mind as we resume meeting:

  • For preschoolers, there will be a max of 6 children in a room with 2 adults.
  • We will not be doing any snacks at all.
  • Our volunteers will not be wearing masks but we will practice social distancing and will encourage the children to do the same.
  • We will not promote them to the new age group and class until sometime in August.

In order to be certain that we have sufficient volunteers on hand as well as rooms ready, we will need you to register your intent to come.  Please do so by emailing Barbara or calling 941-504-5689.  Please be sure to give the child’s name and birthdate and what time or times they will be coming. Also, be sure to share with me any special requests or concerns that you may have.  We will do our best to respond to them.  

Please know that you should only come back if you and your children are ready to be in small groups again.  Please do not feel any pressure from us here at church.

Preschool Parent Information

What to bring for your preschool child – Sarasota Baptist Church asks that you please label your child personal items. The preschool has Sarasota Baptist diaper bag tags available at the Preschool check in desk. We request that you include disposable diapers. If your child is in training pants, please send extra pants and a change of clothes. Be sure these are labeled. Our Sunday curriculum and classrooms are filled with all activities and toys needed for the morning, so we ask that your child does NOT bring any personal toys to the classroom.
Illness Policy – Children with above-normal temperature, colds, persistent cough, rash or any contagious disease should not be brought to the preschool areas as infection of others may occur. Parents must be sure that their children are free from signs of illnesses for 48 hours before bringing them to the preschool. If a child becomes ill while in the preschool area, the parent/guardian will be requested to come and pick up their child. Teachers do NOT administer medications.
Drop off/ pick up procedure – All families checking in their children at Sarasota Baptist Church will receive a name-tag that has a letter and a number to be placed on the back of each individual child. Parents will receive a security tag with the same matching letter and number that will be presented at pick up to the teacher.
We ask that parents please present the tag to the teachers.
