Two nurseries are staffed with loving volunteers during each of the Sunday morning worship services (9:00 AM and 10:30 AM) to provide safe, individualized care for the youngest ACORNS at East White Oak. All nursery supervisors and volunteers have been screened and approved to care for the children. To view the Nursery Policy and Procedure Handbook, click here.
Nursery 1 (Infants)
Infants aged 4 weeks to approximately 12 months (or until the child is walking well) are cared for in Nursery 1 which is located in Room 120. There is a ratio of 1 adult to every 2 infants to help ensure that the babies have as much individualized attention and care as possible. Nursery 1 contains age appropriate toys, swings and plenty of rocking chairs to love and comfort your child! A sleep and nursing room is also located in Nursery 1.
Nursery 2 (Toddlers)
Little ones on the move need their own special place to spend time being loved and cared for by followers of Christ. Nursery 2 is for toddlers aged approximately 1 to 2 years old (ably walking children until they are of the age to move to Toddler programs). The care ratio is one adult to every 4 toddlers. Located in Room 117, lots of age appropriate toys can be found in Nursery 2 and there is a snack time during each service.
Drop off/Pick up Procedures
When you drop your child off in either nursery, you will hand him or her over the counter to a nursery supervisor. You will be asked to sign your child in on the sheet provided, recording a cell phone number where you can be reached in the event a nursery worker should need to contact you concerning your child. Finally, you will be asked to fill out an information card that will be inserted in your child’s name tag so the volunteers can provide the best care possible for your child.
