    1. Is your child enrolling in Preschool in the Fall for the first time at a church school? Sign them up for VBS prior to the start of the school year. This is a great way to get them in the door prior to that nervous and jittery first day of school
    2. Register EARLY! Many Vacation Bible Schools have limited registration due to limited staffing and volunteers.
    3. VOLUNTEER! VOLUNTEER! VOLUNTEER! Never in my life have I had more fun this volunteering for Vacation Bible Schools. Have younger kiddos that don’t meet the age requirements for VBS? They provide childcare for volunteers kids! A win, win situation!
