Nursery & Childcare
Birth through age three
The nursery is open fifteen minutes prior to the start of regular church services or special events. All children must be picked up within fifteen minutes after the conclusion of the last Sunday service or the event you are attending.
Diaper Bag Suggestions
Infants: three disposable diapers per child, and/or pull-ups, a change of clothes, baby wipes and diaper rash cream. Toddlers: a bottle or sippie cup, small dish with spoon (if needed), pacifier with attachment clip (if needed), and snacks (if needed). All items should be labled with your child's first and last name.
Signing in your child is a breeze using our electronic chek-in system.
We know it can be difficult to leave your child, especially the first time in a new place, but after you've completed signing in, we suggest you give your child a quick kiss and depart. It is normal for a child to cry for a few minutes. But rest assured, our caregivers are experts in distraction. If your child is upset longer than ten minutes, we find you.
Use the same sign-in sheet to sign-out. Hand in your pager (the staff will compare numbers with the one on the sign-in sheet), and a caregiver will bring you your child. For your child's safety, only nursery staff are allowed in behind the nursery gate.
All paid staff in the nursery, infant room, and crib room have been screened through the national database required to receive training in Geneva's Child Safely Policy, and are certificated in Infant/Child CPR.
Health Policies Illness
Please refrain from bringing your child if he/she is not feeling well or has had any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours: vomiting, diarrhea, fever, rash or open sores, coughing, sneezing, running nose (anything but clear). To ensure the safety and health of other babies and workers we cannot accept any child that is ill. Our staff will have to page you to pick up your child if he/she starts showing any of the above symptoms.
Our staff is not allowed to give any medication. If a child needs medication the parent must administer it.
To make the nursery as healthy and safe as possible, non-latex gloves are used for each diaper change.
