Welcome to the Nursery!

We welcome you and your babies to our church nursery. The purpose of our nursery department is to provide a safe, loving, fun and comfortable environment for your child so that you can worship and serve the Lord. Everything we do here at McEachern is aimed at one goal—bringing people of every age to Christ. We believe our Nurseries play a big part in reaching that goal.

Our Caregivers

Our paid nursery staff consists of mothers, grandmothers, and others called to serve the Lord by caring for your children. Each has had a background check, is CPR and first aid certified, and trained in Safe Sanctuaries. They are trained in fire safety and where to go during inclement weather. Our staff is also encouraged to participle in Bible Studies so that they are confident & comfortable sharing God’s amazing love with young children.

Good Health Guidelines

We want to provide a healthy environment in our nursery, so we ask you to keep your baby at home when you observe any of the following: fever/vomiting/diarrhea, questionable rash, discharge around eyes, green or yellow runny nose, excessive coughing or any communicable disease. If your child becomes ill while in the nursery, you will be notified promptly. If your child is being treated with any antibiotic, he/she should have received treatment for at least 24 hours before coming to the nursery. Our caregivers must follow these same guidelines.

Diaper Bags

Please equip your diaper bag with the following LABELED items: four disposable diapers, bottles, pacifiers, special blankets, and a complete change of clothing. Please make sure that your diaper bag is also labeled.

Basic Policies & Procedures

Please check-in at desk upon arriving.  Each room has a sign-in sheet which allows you to provide information about your child (warm bottle, feed at 9:30, where you may be located in the church, etc.).  When you arrive at the nursery room, give the child and the diaper bag to the nursery staff along with any new or pertinent information. We recommend that you leave quickly. Your child will be able to adjust more quickly if you do not linger. No one is to enter the Nurseries except the workers and the children. The reasons for this are safety, sanitation, and ease of adjustment for the children. If your child should soil their underwear while in the nursery, you will be notified to come and change him/her. This is for the child’s privacy, as well as sanitary reasons. It is best not to visit your child until you are ready to leave. You will be notified immediately if an emergency should arise.

Safety

We strive to provide the utmost in safety & security!

  • Sign-in/out – Safety—We request that parents (no siblings under 16) bring children to the nursery to sign them in/out. The pick-up label must be presented when child is released. It is important for parents to be on the church campus while their children are in the nursery.  Cell Phones – Please leave a working cell phone number so we can reach you should you be needed during your time at McEachern UMC.
  • Check-In System—Please stop at the sign-in desk to make sure information is current. Here you will receive a label for your child and one for you to return and pick-up.
  • Snacks—We provide a snack (fruit loops, pretzels or Cheerios) with water. This allows us to very cautious for those who may have life-threatening food allergies. If your child should have an allergy, please place a yellow wristband on your child with what they are allergic to and if they are permitted to have our snack. Snack ingredients are posted outside each room for your approval.  If there is a serious allergy that requires an Epi-Pen, we ask that you give us detailed information at check-in.
