Here's a list of answers to your most frequent questions about your child's experience in our Nursery.
To ensure your baby receives the best care, we adhere to a one volunteer per two children in our infant rooms, one volunteer per four children in our early walkers room and one volunteer for every six children in our toddler rooms ages two and up.
Your toddlers participate in many age-appropriate biblical teaching approaches with a focus on music and experiential learning.
We usually serve Goldfish and/or Cheerios. If we are serving something else, a sign will be outside of your child’s classroom informing you of the new food item.
If your child has any allergies or special dietary needs and cannot eat what we have provided, please inform our volunteers and bring appropriate snacks for them. We provide allergy stickers. Please use them if your child may not participate in snack time!
If your child is potty training, please be sure to communicate that information to the volunteers and bring an extra change of clothes. We ask that your child wear a pull-up to the classroom. We provide stickers that announce that your child is potty training so volunteers can remind your child to go to the restroom.
When your child starts walking, he/she will move up to an early walkers room.
When he/she turns two, we will move him/her to a toddler room.
Once potty trained, your child will be promoted to the Preschool.
Our volunteers or Director of Nursery will communicate with you before this change is made.
Periodically, we will offer parent classes to all parents. We'll communicate these classes via reminder stickers on diaper bags, bulletins, newsletters, and text notifications. These classes are appropriate for anyone who influences the lives of kids and teenagers. The curriculum is based on Playing For Keeps/Losing Your Marbles by Reggie Joyner and Kristin Ivy.
Baby dedication ceremonies honor parents who have attended the parent class. These ceremonies occur twice per year by RSVP and are fully communicated to those that attend the parenting classes.
