Nursery - Children birth to 3yrs.

“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me”
Mark 9:36-37

Nursery care, for children who are infants to 3 years old, is provided during all SunRise worship services and several church functions. Our youngest churchgoers are cared for by adult and youth paid staff members along with volunteers. We strive to make the nursery as safe and as healthy as possible.

Nursery attendants will walk, rock, read, feed and play with the children to insure that they are content. Parents are encouraged to let us know if their child has a preferred comfort technique!


Check-In and Pick-Up
If you are a first-time visitor, please fill out an information card located at our nursery check-in desk. These cards remain confidential and provide us with specific information on how to best care for your child. Please add any special instructions to the bottom or back as needed.

A nursery attendant will take your child and diaper bag to the appropriate room. Please pick up your child promptly following worship service or the function you are attending.
We display your last name in the lower right corner of the large screen in the Celebration Space (where worship takes place) if you are needed while in worship. Please report to the appropriate nursery promptly.

Diapers
Please include adequate diapering supplies in your child’s diaper bag. Diapers will be checked/changed the last 15 minutes of service and as needed. Diaper changing is done only on the diaper-changing pad located by the sink in the nursery. A three-step cleaning method is used on the pad following each diaper change.

Your Child’s Health

In the interest of maintaining a healthy environment, please do not place your child in the nursery if:

• your child has run a fever in the past 24 hours
• there is cloudy drainage coming from your child’s nose or eyes
• your child has had diarrhea or vomiting in the past 24 hours

In the event that your child comes down with a contagious disease following a visit to our nursery, please call and inform our church office so that adequate measures may be taken.
