“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.”
(Psalm 127:3 NLT)
The goal of our Nursery includes the following:
- To provide a healthy, safe and nurturing environment supported by a loving, Christian staff and volunteers.
- To encourage and support you as a parent.
Things You May Want to Know
Safety Measures we take:
We have a secure check-in system to ensure the safety and security of the children. You will be given a security card at drop off. You will also be asked to provide a cell phone number. We only release children to the parent/guardian with the security card.
All adult staff and volunteers are carefully screened with Trusted Employee background checks.
Trusted Employee uses a national criminal background check as well as a national sex offender registry.
All rooms are staffed with 2 employees / volunteers.
An overseer continually monitors each room to ensure that all is well.
Each employee / volunteer is fully trained by an employee on check in procedures, care of children, and when to call a parent.
Our workers want to provide a quality and Christ centered experience for your child. Our heart is that we will be a picture of Jesus to them.
During the class time will have many activities, because we are committed to interacting with your child. We:
We provide snacks
During your child’s stay with us, we will be providing a snack of graham crackers, saltine crackers, Gold Fish crackers, or Ritz crackers. If your child has food allergies, please let the staff member know when you drop off your child.
In order to keep our nursery a happy and healthy place for all children, we ask that children are kept home when they are ill or exhibit any of these symptoms within 24 hours of nursery attendance.
*Coughing, sneezing, infected runny nose or eyes
If your child is discovered not feeling well after you arrive at church, we have a Parents with Babies with Sniffles Room on the Infant Hall prepared for you to care for your child and observe the service via a TV monitor in the room.
This room is disinfected after every service.
Our Responses and Extra Precautions because of Covid 19
We want to take extra precautions when we care for your children during this season of Covid 19. We have added these additional guidelines.
Staff will not come in if they have been exposed to Covid or are experiencing any of the symptoms.
On arrival, staff’s temperature will be checked. And the Covid questions will be asked.Staff will wear masks and face shields.
Children will not wear face masks. We are unable to have the children maintain social distancing.
Children’s temperatures will be taken, and the parents will be asked the Covid 19 questions.
Children will use hand sanitizer before entering the room.
Snacks served in Dixie cups with children sitting on the floor separated.
If a child puts a toy in their mouth we immediately take it away and out of reach of other kids.
After class, all rooms are deep cleaned. All small toys are bagged and removed from room. All large toys and flat surfaces are cleaned with a CDC approved cleaner. Each bag of toys is only used one time then removed for cleaning.
After the weekend, the toys that were removed go through a 3 part process of cleaning. They are washed with soap and hot water. They are then rinsed with clear water. And finally disinfected with the CDC recommended mix of Clorox bleach and water. They are then air dried and stored until the next service.
Our prayer is that each of your babies will experience the full love of Jesus Christ through all staff and volunteers involved in our Nursery.
