Raising Lovers of Jesus on Fire for God and His Purposes on Earth!

At Antioch Waltham, our vision is to love and value every child as an important member of our community. Our time with them is an opportunity where we get to teach, model and share the love for Jesus in a safe and fun environment. We strive for them to know the great love that Jesus has for them, develop a relationship with Jesus, and grow in that relationship; to follow Jesus all the days of their lives and share His love with others.

Post COVID-19 Helpful Info - Our Classrooms

(With restrictions lifting, we are currently planning to resume our children's classes this fall and will maintain similar safety guidelines as provided by local schools.)

Babies & Toddlers (0 - 2 Years)

We are so happy to welcome our youngest church members into this classroom, which serves newborns through toddlers.

Class opens at 10:00 AM.

In this classroom, we strive to provide a clean, safe and loving environment where children can experience the love of Jesus through volunteers. Volunteers engage children by reading stories to them, singing to them, playing with them, holding them, and showing them Jesus’ love as they care for them in a fun environment. The environment allows children the opportunity to engage with other children in a safe way, and to play with age appropriate toys.  Our Babies & Toddlers classroom is divided into two areas: walkers and non-walkers, and our nursery has a sleeping babies area along with a place for mothers to nurse their babies.

Preschool (3 - 5 years)

Our preschool classroom is a great, active, fun environment for children! This classroom serves children ages 3 - 5 years old.

Class starts after worship, when children are released from the sanctuary. 

This class utilizes a developmentally-appropriate curriculum to help children learn about the bible, biblical concepts and about Jesus in a fun, simple, engaging way! We strive to provide children with a strong foundation in their faith to have a relationship with Jesus. Children also have the opportunity to play with their classmates, using fun age-appropriate toys. They are getting to know each other and learning about each other through play, which is the basic foundation toward forming long-lasting friendships and biblical community. Volunteers engage children by playing with them, listening to them, praying with them and engaging them in meaningful conversations about the bible, biblical concepts and Jesus.

Elementary (Kindergarten - 5th Grade)

Our elementary classroom is a fun, thriving environment for learning! This classroom is for Kindergarteners through fifth graders. 

Class starts after worship when children are released from the sanctuary.

This class utilizes a developmentally-appropriate curriculum to help children learn about the bible, biblical concepts, and Jesus in a fun, engaging way! Children are learning through games, engaging with the bible in fun ways, and learning about Jesus through volunteers and each other. They have opportunities to fellowship with each other and form friendships, teaching them the importance of biblical community. Children are encouraged to participate in conversations, ask questions, and play games as they are learning.
