Know Nativity's Childcare
We make it convenient for parents to attend worship services at Nativity -- children are welcome in the "big room" while services are going on -- but, sometimes it's nice for children to have "their time" in a comfortable setting while parents attend worship. Here's information on Nativity's childcare procedures so that you feel good about the decision to entrust your children to our care and supervision. We also want to provide resources to assist you in raising your children. You are always welcome to visit the church and tour our child-care room.
For your planning convenience, Nativity will begin receiving children fifteen minutes before the start of our service. We request that you pick up your children promptly after each program.
Please send your child with a change of clothes and a sufficient supply of diapers or pull-ups for their stay. Diaper bags, bottles, cups, and all personal belongings should be labeled with your child’s first and last name. Since we supply toys and play materials for the children, it is not necessary to bring toys from home.
Toys and equipment are sanitized after each use. We are committed to keeping your children healthy.
We will gladly give your baby his or her bottle, per your instructions. However, we cannot spoon-feed your child or administer any medications. We also provide a place for mothers to nurse their babies.
We at Nativity take the issue of your child's allergies very seriously. To ensure the safety of your child inform the childcare attendant of any food allergies your child might have. Our procedure is to eliminate the food source that might cause the allergy.
We want to provide a healthy environment in the nursery and preschool area, so we ask you to keep your child home when you observe any of the following within the last 24 hours:
Fever Green or Yellow Runny Nose
Vomiting Discharge in or around the Eyes
Any Communicable Diseases
Any Unidentified Rashes
– If your child becomes ill while in the nursery, you will be notified promptly.
– If your child is treated with an antibiotic, he or she should have received treatment for at least 24 hours before coming to the nursery.
– No medication will be given under any circumstances. Parents may return and give medication if necessary.
– For your child’s protection, we ask our caregivers to follow these guidelines.
