Nursery & Preschool Parents' Guide
Thank you for the trust you are showing us by letting us serve your children in our Nursery and Preschool ministry. We take this responsibility seriously and want you to know what we are doing to make their time with us fun and safe, and how we try to point them to Jesus. If you have any questions about our Midtown Kids ministry, please feel free to ask the pastor or nursery staff.
Check in and Check out
Each child needs to be checked-in using our electronic system every Sunday. Check-in begins at 4:45 p.m. at the Nursery. Once you check in, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear his or her name tag, which bears a code matched to your security tag that is needed to pick up your child after service. Please come as soon as possible after the service to pick your child up. This will make serving much better for our volunteers.
Once they are checked in, the children will play, sing songs and hear Bible stories about the love of Jesus in a safe and caring environment. We use the Dwell curriculum, which approaches the whole Bible in a way that ignites the imagination and engages kids on a deeper level, breaking through their busy minds and producing moments of awe. Kids can learn that God's story is still going on today and that they can be a part of that story in meaningful ways. They'll learn to find their place in God's ongoing mission of renewal and redemption.
Staff and volunteers
Our Nursery Director oversees a team of volunteers from the congregation. All of our staff and volunteers have passed background checks, and our staff and leaders have had safety training through Stewards of Children.
To ensure good health to everyone, children with colds, colored runny noses, fevers, rashes, or other symptoms of illness are not permitted into the nursery. If your child has any allergies or special conditions, please explain them to the staff member or volunteer in the nursery. For allergies, make sure that a note about the allergy has been made in the child’s check-in so that it will be reflected on your child’s name tag.
