We also provide nursery care as often as possible for special events (i.e. holiday services, special church-wide meeting, etc.) If nursery care will be provided, it will be noted in the bulletin.

  • Safety policies

    General Guidelines:

    * Our nursery has been thoroughly "baby-proofed" and all the toys are checked for potential hazards.

    * Double doors are used to prevent "escapees" from exiting the nursery.


    Diaper Changing/Bathroom Use:

    * Our diaper changing areas ar both in high-visibility locations, and Nursery Moms are the only caregivers authorized to change diapers.

    * Caregivers may assist a child to the restroom and either wait outside or assist the child as needed with the door left open.


    First Aid:

    * In the case of minor injury the parent will be notified upon their return to the nursery.


    Fire: 

    * Caregivers will exit the children out of the nursery.
