It is a blessing to serve you, your family, and the other ministries to which parents are involved in. It is our goal to make sure that our nursery provides a safe, happy, and secure environment for your child. We want you to know that we will always try to make your child feel comfortable, valued, and loved.
We promise to strive for two caregivers in the nursery every Sunday. We will also be teaching 3-4 year olds during the Sunday school hours (9-10am). During this time 0-2 years old are still welcome and will be attended to by the second caregiver.
The staff will be composed of qualified, trust worthy people. Each caregiver is over the age of 18 and has a complete background check. Every caregiver has a CPR certification as well. This is to ensure that any person potentially harmful to children is denied access to the church nursery.

Our nursery service is available to accept children aging from 0-5 starting at 8:00am on Sunday mornings. When you drop off your child, you will be asked to sign in your child in our log book. We would also like to put a sticker on your diaper bag for identification if one is not present already.
We also have identification cards on each child. If you have filled one out please make sure it is up to date. If you have not filled out an ID card yet please state any allergies or special instructions that may need to be brought to our attention.
We ask that only the parent who signed in for the child is to pick up the child. If this is not possible please let us know at drop off. This is for the safety of your child and ensures that no one else can remove your child from the nursery for the peace of mind of both parent and nursery worker. We also ask that you pick up your child promptly after the service is over.
- Two or more disposable diapers
- Labeled sippy cup or bottle
- Pacifier if appropriate
- Change of clothes
For the health of others, we ask that you keep your child out of the nursery if they have any of the following whether on medication or not:
- Runny nose
- Questionable rash
- Constant or raspy cough
- Vomiting in last 24 hours
Our children can become ill quickly. If your child should become ill in our care, we will contact you immediately in class or church, for you to pick up your child. If your child has a continuous runny nose or rashes due to non-contagious allergies, please let us know during the sign-in so that we can be informed. Remember we are only thinking of the health and happiness of the children. Please help keep our nursery a healthy place!
