Please Welcome our New KidZone Director!

My name is Lenka Beckage and I feel very blessed and excited to be the new Director of the KidZone. I accept this position with a great love for Jesus who is my rock, and a big passion for children. My goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all the little ones who will be visiting the KidZone, and help enlighten the flame of love that’s dwelling in their hearts. I grew up in Slovakia as a middle child along with my two sisters. Since my childhood I had a dream to become a teacher and I fulfilled this dream in graduating from Pedagogical Academy in Bratislava, Slovakia with a preschool teaching degree.
Fast forward a couple of years—I moved to the USA where I met my husband Mike and we are blessed to raise 2 beautiful children together, Matthew (14) and Emma (11). I continued working with children, mostly of preschool age throughout most of my work career. In 2013 we moved to Windsor from Pennsylvania and joined the OLV parish. I would say it was “love at first site” right after we entered the sanctuary. We fell in love with the dynamically growing church full of passionate parishioners and a great number of youth and young families. We were “sold” and never considered joining another parish.
 
We serve families with young children from 6 weeks old to 5th grade in the KidZone.
 

All families must complete a new KidZone Agreement Form every year. Space will be limited to adhere to COVID PROTOCOL. Once you have registered your child using the online form below, Lenka will send you a confirmation email with a link to SignUp Genius. You will sign up for a time slot in the nursery the same way you sign up for Mass so your child will be supervised.

You must use signup genius each week to guarantee a slot for your child. Thank you for your cooperation!

Please be advised… Since the opening of the nursery is based upon the dependence of volunteers, families will have to be adaptable and flexible with the opening and the closing of the nursery at the last minute. There may be times where volunteers will not be accessible at a Mass or evening and I will have to close it for that session. Notice will be provided prior to closing through FlockNote as soon as we are aware. Thank you for your cooperation
 
PLEASE NOTE: The KidZone will not open unless we have reservations for at least three
children per session.
