During this time when we can’t meet together in our physical spaces, we hope that these following weekly resources will provide an online option for you and your family to stay consistent. These resources are what your preschoolers experience on a weekly basis, so we are excited for you as parents to take part with your child!
We love you and are praying that God brings comfort and peace during this time. Below you will find this week’s resources. You can also find this content on our Heights App – found in the Apple App or Google Play stores.

- SAY: “Today, we learned about the beginning of creation, what God made on days one and two. Let’s make a picture of the sky and water. Where should you color the water? (Pause.) That’s right! Under this line on the bottom part of your paper is where we’ll put the water. (Pause.) Fill it all in! (Pause.) Great! Now, what is white and fluffy and floats through the sky? (Pause.) Yes! Fluffy, white clouds! Glue some cotton balls to the top of your paper for the clouds in the sky. (Pause.) Super job of making a picture of the sky and water! In the very beginning, there was nothing but God. On the very first day, God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light! God said it was good Then God separated the light from dark. He called light ‘Day’ and dark ‘Night.’ On day two, God made water down low and the sky up above. God saw what He had made and said, ‘It is good.’ God had plans for much more, and we’ll learn about that in the next weeks. Everything God made is good because God made everything. Who made everything? [Bottom Line] God made everything.”
