For your child 0-2 years old. If your child turns 2 by September 30th, they will attend Sunday School in the preschool area during 1st service. For 2nd service, they are welcomed back in the nursery.
The nursery is located on the upper level across from the balcony. It opens at 9:00 a.m. during regular worship hours and 8:15 during the summer, where it is available only during second service.
Drop off procedure:
When you arrive in the nursery, an adult staff person will be there to greet you and your child. Please sign in your child on the bulletin board next to the door, and take a pager. We will page you if your child is distressed for 15 minutes and will not be consoled. You will also be paged if the child seems ill or feverish. The pager will vibrate to alert you that you are needed back in the nursery. Only you or your designated pick up person will be allowed to take your child out of the nursery. Once your child has been in the nursery 3 times, you will be asked to fill out a registration card. You are welcome to leave your child in the nursery for both services, so that you may participate in Worship and another ministry. It is not necessary to check on them in between services as this can make them agitated at a 2nd departure. Please let the staff know that you intend to have them stay for both services when you drop them off.
Out of respect of the other children in the nursery, we ask that you refrain from bringing your child to the nursery if they have a fever, are throwing up, have diarrhea, or any contagious rashes within the previous 24 hours.
Snacks & Supplies:
We have many extra supplies in the nursery. Please try to provide a diaper bag with your baby's own care essentials. Your child will have their own coat hook in the closet. Please label your child's diaper bag, bottles, pacifiers, and cups, and leave instructions for mixing formula etc... We provide snacks of plain cherrios and animal crackers and bottle spring water for refilling drinks. If your child has any allergies, please make sure we are aware of them.
To provide a safe, loving, nurturing environment for children from birth to two years of age, any time nursery is advertised, so that parents may participate in the ministries of the church without concern for the well-being of their children.
Our nursery is staffed with loving, wonderful people, who love to care for your baby & you. We are here to ease your discomfort of being away from your baby and your child's discomfort they may have separating from you. We will hold a low staff ratio of one to every three babies, and many times less.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the church at 603-926-3724.
There is a mother's room located to the right side of the balcony across from the nursery. This is a private area where you may go to nurse and care for your baby. There is a television located in the room so you can watch, listen to, and participate in the worship service. We would like to encourage you to bring your active baby to the nursery as this room is not sound proof.
