What is the Purpose of the Childcare Room?

The purpose of our Childcare Room is to provide a safe, healthy, loving, fun and comfortable environment for both you and your child. We believe your child is a gift from God - so we want to provide the best love and care possible. We also believe that it is never too early to teach a child about God's love. We want your child to feel comfortable in our nursery and to feel loved. We believe that we represent Christ to each little one in our care, and want to lay a foundation for your child not only to trust us, but to trust in God.

  4. Check the sign in sheet when you drop off your child to make sure all information is correct.

  6. Label bottles & pacifiers (they all start to look alike after a while...especially pacifiers! Sharpie markers work great.)

  9. Please be prompt when picking up your child. Your sensitivity to start and finish times of Childcare is appreciated!!
