The nursery is staffed by experienced childcare providers, with occasional help from church volunteers. Upon entering the nursery children are greeted by colorful surroundings, toys, books and music and spend their time exploring individually or with guidance. The class occasionally also does group projects. On good weather days (of which there are many!) children may go outside to our nursery playground. Parents may stay with their children in the nursery to help them feel more comfortable in their new surroundings and of course may drop in at any time. Parents are asked to bring a change of diapers and any special items the child may need. Parents should sign in their children on the clipboard next to the door of the nursery when dropping them off or fill out a Guest Registration Form if it is your first time to the nursery. We ask that parents leave their cell phone number on the sign in sheet and keep the cell phone on during the service, set to vibrate so that you may be reached if needed.
