At the Nursery Greeter Desk, you and your child will be issued a permanent ID Tag. One tag accompanies your child to the nursery and the other is for you to present to the staff when picking up your child. If you are ever needed while your child is in the nursery, you will be notified one of two ways: your child's ID number will appear on one of the monitors located in the Sanctuary (over doors closest to the ministers) or a nursery representative will locate you through the information you provided on your child's registration card. It is important that you keep this card current, consider this your emergency information sheet.
FOOD & SNACKS
Nursery staff cannot feed children meals (church policy). Infants will be fed bottles as requested - but must be prepared by the parent. Toddlers and preschoolers will be served a snack with water. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies.
Helpful Nursery Hints & Numbers
Be consistent in your church attendance. Your child will learn that church is a fun place to be if they come weekly and this will make the separation from parents easier.
Do not be discouraged - crying is normal!! Most of the time the crying does not last long. Reassure your child that you will be back. We have found that it works best if you do not come in the room with your child.
Prepare your toddler before you come to church. Remind your child how much fun they are going to have playing with toys and their friends, and learning about Jesus. "Talk-up" the setting in a positive upbeat manner.
God cares about your child. Pray about your concerns and remember, never be afraid to ask questions and make suggestions. After all you are the parent. Please feel free to call any time with you concerns.
