NURSERY

We are very fortunate to have Shiloh Scott, our dedicated nursery coordinator, who makes sure that our nursery has capable, trained volunteers every Sunday. They provide supervision as well as Bible stories and activities for the children in a loving environment.
 
Nursery is available during worship on Sunday mornings.
Children may be dropped off and left with our staff while parents attend worship.
 
Health and Safety requirements for use of the Nursery:
  • Children and volunteers will have their temperature screened prior to entering the nursery. A child or volunteer with a temperature over 100.4 will not be allowed to enter.
  • If you notice symptoms of illness before coming to church, please do not bring your child to nursery.
  • Parents are asked to drop children off without entering the nursery.
  • All adults are required to wear a mask and physically distance while in the nursery.
  • Children over the age of two will be required to wear a mask while in the nursery.
  • We will do our best to keep children physically distanced from each other.
Our Statement of Covenant
As a Christian community of faith committed to ministry to and with children, we pledge to conduct all our activities and ministries in such a way that assures the safety and spiritual growth of all children and youth entrusted to us. We will follow reasonable safety measures in the selection and recruitment of workers and we will be responsible in overseeing our programs and events and in training our staff, so that they are able and equipped to minister to children in Jesus’ name. We will report and respond to all suspected incidents of abuse as is required by state law and our moral conscience and we will be prepared to minister to the families of both the abused and the perpetrator or be prepared to make referrals if it exceeds our in-house expertise.
 
Policy for the protection of Children
  • Two Adult Rule: there will be two adults in each classroom. If this is not possible, there will be a roaming adult who moves amid the classrooms/areas during the program period.
  • Each room will have an unobstructed window or the door will be left open at all times.
  • Teachers and volunteers will receive training yearly on policy for the protection of children and how to recognize signs of abuse. Anyone who has not completed training will not be allowed to work with children or youth.
  • Volunteers and staff will complete a participation covenant statement and application, and may be subject to a criminal background check.
