Our nursery is designed to support families as they grow in their knowledge of God. The nursery is staffed by trained employees of First Pres, as well as member volunteers. All follow our Seven Safety Practices for those working with children and youth.
All children at minimum age of 6 weeks prior to September 1
1-year-olds, under the age of 2 prior to September 1
2-year-olds, under the age of 3 prior to September 1
3-year-olds, under the age of 4 prior to September 1
We ask parents to let us know their children's personal needs (e.g., allergies, medications, etc.) so that we can address them. We also ask parents to sign in their children on each occasion when they use the Nursery so that we can provide pagers for use if the need arises. In addition, we release the children only to the parent or guardian who signed them in unless we have specific instructions to release them to another adult named by the parent or guardian.
To help member families prepare for the baptism of their children, we ask that they attend a Baptism Orientation class held during the Sunday School hour. (See First News for dates.) In addition, we provide a parent newsletter, Splash, to help families with Christian nurture during the child's first three years of life.
