Sunday School welcomes all children ages 3-Kindergarten to learn about God’s love for them while singing songs and creating crafts related to the Sunday Gospel! Sunday School meets during the 10:00 a.m. Mass in the Kindergarten wing of the parish school (enter through the Pastoral Center doors). All children, including those new to St. Margaret Mary or visiting, are welcome to join us.
Does my child have to be potty trained?
No, but we need to know if they are not, and be provided with changing materials each week.
What if my child is nervous to stay? or cries?
We encourage the children to explore their independence. Though it may be hard at first (for you both) please allow the child the opportunity to stay and become comfortable with the class and new friends. If the child is upset to a degree we are not comfortable with, we will come find you in mass. If a child is having a hard time adjusting or behaving during our time, we will let you know. Your child is welcome at all times in our program, however, if behavior or separation anxiety is a consistent issue, a parent or guardian will be required to accompany that child to class.
What if my child has allergies? What type of snacks are provided?
We must be notified of possible allergies. The children have bread (nut-free, usually cinnamon or pumpkin type bread), and water for a snack.
Is my child required to attend each week?
It is our desire that your child WANTS to come each week! However, it is not a requirement. We will not take attendance, but for your child to blossom in the program regular attendance is ideal.
Am I required to volunteer?
Encouraged but not required. We would love for you to have a first-hand understanding of the program, to share this special time with your child on occasion and we could always use the help.
If I volunteer, does it count towards my stewardship?
Yes, please notify one of the leaders to make sure you are accounted for.
