Welcome to the Peace Church Nursery and Pre-K! Our nursery and pre-k rooms are places where we hope to make children feel safe and loved. On Sunday mornings children - who are not yet in Kindergarten - can be dropped off prior to the worship service. For older children, we offer our Peace Kids Elementary Program.
We know that leaving your child in the nursery for the first time can be overwhelming and we want to help make it as easy as possible for you. Below you will find any information you will need to bring your child to the nursery or pre-k rooms.
WHEN YOU BRING YOUR CHILD TO PEACE KIDS NURSERY OR PRE-K
There is an upstairs check-in station where you will first come to check your child in. Please make sure to specify any health concerns or allergies to the front desk worker.
While your child is in their room, they will learn a Bible story and how to appropriately respond to it while living on mission for Christ. It is our prayer that every child leaves knowing that they are made in God's image and that they are loved.
The check-in process begins prior to the start of service. The first time you come we will put your household information into our system. The system will print a child tag and a parent identification number that matches only your child(ren) to prevent any safety issues. Keep this parent tag safe because you will need it for pick-up. Before printing, make sure that your phone number is correct. This is how we will contact you during the service if there is an issue with your child.
PICK UP PROCESS
Protecting the children in our care is our first priority. We ask that when you return to pick your child up you bring your parent tag to verify which child is yours. Only authorized parents, guardians, or approved adults are allowed to check children out. You must have your parent tag on your person at the time of pick up.
Our nursery is staffed by many different volunteers. Each one has gone through a training class and has had a background check to ensure that they are just right for caring for your children. We do not require parents to help in the nurseries but we do encourage them to get involved in some way.
FAMILY ROOM (Rm 202) & FAMILY VENUE (Rm 100)
Located just off the Worship Center, you will also find a Family Room where parents who wish to worship with their child (but wish to remove the disruption to those around them) are able to go if they choose. This room is also equipped with a nursing station for mothers who need to nurse their child.We also have a Family Venue downstairs for families that streams the entire service. There is space for the whole family with kids toys, coloring activities, and snacks!
NEED MORE INFORMATION?
We hope this information will ease your mind and help you feel welcome to place your child in the nursery. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact Paula Averill the Peace Kids Programming Director.
