Nursery

Welcome to our church nursery! Our nursery has two rooms: the main room is for active play and the secondary room is for quiet infant care and diaper changing. A child’s bathroom is also located within our nursery.

In Proverbs 22:6, it is written, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” In the spirit of this proverb, our nursery is staffed by loving, caring women and men who will help your child begin his or her Christian life.

 

Our Sunday Morning Schedule

9 a.m. Infant and toddler care, year-round (ages 0-3), with Sunday School from September through May

10:30 a.m. Infant through preschool age, during the school year. 

 

Keeping in Touch (for Parents) 

Our Nursery is equipped with a 24-module paging system that permits us to discreetly contact you at a moment’s notice during the worship service. Each parent bringing a child to our nursery will receive a pager. You will be paged for such reasons as:

  • Your child cries continuously for 10 minutes.
  • Your child becomes ill or hurt.
  • Your child needs to be nursed.
  • The nursery is in need of another adult.

For security purposes, no child will be released to anyone except the parent returning the pager.

Parent Responsibilities

  • The first time you bring your child to our Nursery, the Nursery Supervisor will register your child and instruct you in our check-in procedures.
  • It is your responsibility to fill out a name tag and place it on the back of your child.  Please be sure to also label all diaper bags, bottles, and sippy cups.
  • Please pick up your child promptly after the worship service. No child will be released to anyone except the parent returning the pager.
  • Please do not bring any toys from home.
  • Please do not send your child with any food.
  • Please volunteer to help in the nursery.

Nursery Maintenance

John Wesley said that “cleanliness is next to Godliness.” Care is taken in following sanitary diapering procedures and potty visits. Clean bedding is provided for children who need cribs. Toys that come in contact with a child’s mouth are washed each week, and all equipment and toys are sanitized four times a year.

Sickness/Illness policy

We ask that you keep your infant/toddler at home with any of the following symptoms and/or illnesses

  • Fever
  • Runny nose
  • Questionable rashes
  • Coughing
  • Diarrhea
  • Impetigo
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Active chicken pox
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)

If your child is being treated with antibiotics, he/she should be on the drug for at least 24 hours before coming to the nursery.

If your infant/toddler has a continually clear-runny nose or rash due to non-contagious allergies or teething, please let us know. We realize that some symptoms hang on long after the child is no longer contagious.
