Redeemer Church Nursery Policy
We welcome you and your family to Redeemer Church. We consider our children a valuable part of the Redeemer community. Here we seek to respect their unique needs and cultivate their gifts by supporting parents and following the example of Jesus (Matthew 19:14) . To that end, it is our goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your children so you can feel secure about their wellbeing while you attend services and activities.
Before placing your child in the nursery, please read the following details of our nursery program: how it is run, the rules we have crafted to ensure a safe environment, and contact information for any additional questions. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated.
Age of Care
Infants to age three are accepted for care in the nursery. For safety reasons, we do not allow children above nursery age to enter the nursery rooms at any time unless they are assisting their parents. Children’s Church is available for those three years of age and potty trained through 3rd grade.
We always have a minimum of two nursery workers on duty. They will be wearing a brightly colored badge/lanyard identifying them as the volunteers. All nursery volunteers at Redeemer are required to have a background check. Nursery volunteers arrive at the nursery 15 minutes prior to the start of the service.
Parents/Guardians are required to complete an information card for their child. This card will provide the nursery workers with essential information needed to care for the child. Information provided on this card will include: parent contact numbers, diaper bag information, food allergies, special instructions, etc.
Drop Off and Pick Up
Parents/Guardians need to check-in their child’s information card to the nursery volunteer(s) when dropping off their child. Children will only be released to a parent or another pre-authorized adult. Please pick up your children as soon as the service concludes.
For the health and safety of all children, nursery staff and the peace of mind of our children’s parents, children that are currently ill or have shown symptoms of illness within the last 24 hours should not be brought to the nursery. If a child shows signs of illness while in the nursery, the parent/guardian will be notified. It is the responsibility of parents to show an abundance of caution when choosing to place a recently ill child in the nursery.
