Preschool & Nursery Policies


General Policies


  • Our rooms open 15 minutes prior to regularly scheduled services and Bible studies.
  • Children are to be brought to the age appropriate room by a parent and will only be released to the parent with the security sticker.
  • Parents should come for their children immediately following the Bible study or service they have attended. This helps prevent the apprehension your child feels when they are waiting for your return.
  • Please see that items belonging to your child are properly labeled, especially diaper bag, plastic bottles, pacifiers, drinking cups.
  • Children should not bring personal toys to church.
  • Parents should refrain from entering the room as a safety and health precaution for all children.

 


Healthcare Policies


Children should be excluded from the child care setting for the following:

  • Illness preventing your child from comfortably participating in program activities
  • Fever the previous 24 hours
  • Signs suggesting illness
  • Vomiting or diarrhea in the previous 24 hours
  • Unexplainable rash or rash accompanied by fever
  • Drainage or redness as possible indicators of conjunctivitis (“pink eye”)
  • Impetigo
  • Streptococcal pharyngitis (“strep throat”) until 24 hours after treatment has been initiated
  • Ringworm - covered or uncovered.

 


Food Policies


  • Children will be fed pre-measured formula, milk or juice only as provided by the parent. Each toddler will be provided with a low-sugar snack. Please provide a sippy cup for your toddler with his/her name on it.
  • If your child has any food allergies, please notify the Nursery Director
  • Our volunteers and staff cannot give medications. Please do not put any type of medication in your child's bottle or cup.

 


Clothing Hints


  • Please include a change of clothing each time your child comes to church. Spilling or soiling may occur, and the child will be much happier if he/she has familiar clothes to put on. Make sure all clothing is labeled.
  • For your child's comfort and enjoyment, it is suggested that he/she be dressed in comfortable, machine-washable clothing that will not restrict free movement.
  • Lost items will be taken to the lost and found.
