Thank you for helping with our youngest members of the church.  Your role is to provide safe, secure, and nurturing care to our children. 

Separation from parents and caregivers is a difficult time for some children and/or caregivers, so please be patient with their tears and fears.  We will try to comfort the child as best we can or if need be, return them to their parent or caregiver.

Assisting nursery director, Lori Sheriff, is as simple as:

         •Holding and soothing a child

                  Going to get a parent or caregiver, if needed

         •Play with the child(ren) or give guidance in directing their play

         •Assist Lori Sheriff with planned activities

         •Help with snack time and/or supervise child(ren) personal snack

                  Be aware of choking hazards

                  Help to prevent spills when possible

                  Assist in clean-up of snack area

         •Help monitor toy use and cleaning of toys

                  As the children are playing, separate any toys that have

  been put into a mouth into the cleaning bin

Keep the infant/teething toys clean and in a separate bin

         •Interactions with parent(s) or primary caregiver(s)

                  Always thank them for bringing their child(ren) as it is a

  privilege to serve them (be sure to use their names)

Always smile!!!

Nursery director, Lori Sheriff, will be responsible for the following:

         •Signing the child(ren) In and Out

         •Verifying information sheet for child(ren)

         •Changing Diapers and/or helping with bathroom usage of potty

  and non-potty-trained toddlers

 by building trust and getting to know them.
