A nursery is available for children eligible to participate in Three Year Old Kindergarten and younger each Sunday morning. We have four rooms available and each room is staffed with two employees at all times. This assures compliance with The Safe Sanctuary Policy that our church implemented years ago. All of our nursery workers have also completed all necessary CPR and infant CPR training. More Information on this policy is available upon request.
Infant room – This room is for newborn children until they are walking with little assistance and are steady on their feet. These children will move to the Toddler room when they are walking well
current year. These are children that would be eligible to participate
in 2 year old Kindergarten (K2)
of the current year. These are children that would be eligible
to participate in 3 year old Kindergarten (K3)
At this time the children will move up to the next nursery room.
This will be announced and nursery personnel will be available to
guide you. This does not apply for the transition from the
Infant Room to the Toddler Room. Parents and nursery personnel
will make this decision together based on the walking ability of the child.
Safe sanctuary rules are always in effect. These nurseries are usually
in the Toddler Room. Toddlers and Infants are usually separated with
older children viewing a movie in our movie room. If the weather permits
the children may be taken outside to play on the age appropriate playground
or to the gymnasium. The entrance for the weekend and weeknight nursery
is the glass door in the back alley in front of the Spirit Center.
If this door is locked please ring the door bell and a nursery worker will let
you in. When possible we keep this door locked for safety reasons.
Please note: We can not lock doors on Sundays.
fill out our sign in sheet. This will give us important information about your
child and will enable us to locate you should the need arise. We have pagers
available on request. Please make us aware of any allergies that your child
may have each and every time that you drop your child off. Your child’s
safety and comfort is very important to us. For children without allergies that
are in the Toddler, 2 yr room and 3 yr room, we provide diluted apple juice
and animal crackers. In the infant room we provide Cheerios and
Gerber Fruit/Vegetable Puffs if your child is on solid foods. You may bring
snacksfor your child if you prefer. Please make sure your child’s name
is on all containers that you bring and on their diaper bag. If you are leaving
the premises, for example, during a Date Night Bible Study, a telephone
number is required.
A Permission/Emergency Medical Form must be completed and on file for
each child that participates in our nursery program.
These forms are available in the Infant nursery room, the Church Office.
