(6weeks – 24months)
Our nursery is staffed with caring and nurturing adults who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to your child’s physical, social and spiritual growth. As we hold the babies, we pray for them to receive all that God has for them in life. We believe that even our littlest ones can learn about the love of Christ!
At the Nursery check-in desk, you will receive a name tag for your child, an asset tag for your diaper bag, an asset tag for your diaper bag, and a corresponding security tag for yourself. We look forward to Please alert check-in personnel of any information that will help in caring for your child, such as allergies or special needs.
What You Should Know
After you have completed the check-in process and taken your child to his or her room, wave a quick good-bye and head into the worship service. As you know, it is common for little ones to cry when a parent leaves. This, typically, does not last long. Separation will become easier over time. Our leaders will immediately engage your child in a toy or activity and ensure your child that you will return soon. If your child cries for an extended period of time, we will page you using the number that corresponds to the one on your security tag. This number will be displayed in the bottom corner of the large screen inside the main auditorium and theater.
When packing a diaper bag for your child, please include the following items:
- Two or three disposable diapers
- An extra change of clothes
- A bottle of milk, formula, juice or water
Please label all personal items (including pacifiers and sippy cups) with your child’s first and last name before arriving at your child’s class. This helps know which items belong to your child.
Snacks are provided for our crawlers and walkers. The food items consist of Gerber Graduate Puffs. Again, please inform the check-in team of any allergies during the check-in process. Allergy alerts will be entered into our check-in system and displayed on your child’s name tag.
We believe that even our littlest ones can learn about the love of Christ! Regular learning experiences are planned and lessons are reinforced with songs, Bible thoughts, and supervised activities designed with the ability of your child in mind.
When the time comes to pick up your child, please return to the appropriate room and present your security tag to the nursery volunteer at the door. The tag will be matched to your child’s name tag before he/she will be released into your care. A child will not able to leave the room, with a parent, without the presentation of the security tag. In the event you lose your security tag, you will be asked to show proper identification before your child is returned to you. Please make sure that you have all of your child’s belongings with you before you leave.
