Welcome to GTKids Downtown!
We believe children are a gift from God. At Grace Toronto, we desire to provide a safe place where kids can learn that they are both beautiful and broken — in need of the saving grace and love of Jesus. Our vision is to help children know Jesus personally and to encourage them to live gospel-centered lives at home and in the city.
We offer children’s church at the 9:30 am and 11:15 am service time. Please note that the majority of our families attend the first service. As such, we are able to offer more classroom options in the first service.
OUR CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS
NURSERY: 6-24 months
We provide a staffed nursery that is open 10 minutes before the service and remains open for the duration of the service. Children participate in a structured program of songs, Bible stories, prayer, snack time and group activities. Students are promoted to the Toddler class when they turn 2-years-old.
Nursery (1st service)
Nursery (2nd service)
TODDLER (2’s) & Preschool (3’s)
Our toddler and preschool program is designed to help children discover the joy of God’s truth and love. The room will be staffed and open 10 minutes before the service, remaining open for the duration of the service. Students are promoted to the Preschool class when they turn 3-years-old. Students entering Junior Kindergarten are asked to wait until September to be promoted with the school-age students, on the Sunday after Labour Day.
