Nursery

It is our sincere desire to help you participate more fully in our Worship Services by providing a safe environment and plenty of “tender loving care” for your little ones in our nursery facilities. Here you can be assured that your child’s needs will be lovingly met.
During the 11:00 Sunday Worship Service, nursery will be offered for infants 5 months old through 4 YO/Pre-K.

Please use Sign-Up Genius to register child to stay in the nursery.

Nursery families enter the building at the Locke Commons for check in. A staff person will take temperatures. If a child has a fever over 99° and/or nasal drainage for any reason, they will not be allowed to go to the nursery.

If a family answers “Yes” to any of the COVID-19 test questions, the child will not be permitted in the nursery. Example: “Has your child or anyone in your immediate family tested positive or been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19?

By signing up to come to nursery, parents agree to the following statement:
If someone in my household tests positive or is exposed to someone who tests positive to COVID-19, we will immediately notify Ann Knight, Director of Children’s Ministries. She will contact the local health department and follow their recommendations for the facility.

The staff person will provide a label for the children and an index card for the parents to use for pick-up. INdex cards will be a different color each week. Parents will be issued a pager. One parent will be allowed to take their child to the lower level via the stairway. Both parents will be allowed to take more than one child. A nursery staff person will meet them on the nursery side of the glass doors.

Staff will not be required to wear masks. This policy is based on the Governor’s mandate #63.
Tubs will be provided in each classroom so that toys that need to be cleaned can be easily identified and taken to the kitchen to be sanitized.
Older children will be provided a set of crayons in labeled cups. The cups will be stored on the shelf in the Orange room.

Pick-up following service:
The same parent who took the child to the nursery must pick up the child following the service. The staff person at the table will collect the index card and the pagers. She will use the two-way radio to call for nursery staff to bring that child to the table.
