We are so excited to care for your child by providing a loving, safe, and clean environment for those entrusted to us. We have a nurse on call at all times if non-emergency medical attention is needed. Our volunteers are all screened with a third-party background check, trained, and ready to serve you and your child.
Registration and Check-In
As you register and check-in your child at the nursery window, you will receive a name tag and bar code for your child. We will also provide a pager in case we need to reach you.
As you prepare for your child to be with us in the PBC Nursery, please help us with the following:
– Label everything in your child’s bag with their name
– Leave your child’s personal toys at home
– Bring a bottle or cup labeled with your child’s name
– Inform us of all food allergies
– Bring adequate diapers or pull-ups for changing and let us know if you would like for us to change them or be notified for you to change them.
– Bring an extra change of clothing
All parents and guardians are welcomed to visit the nursery to help their child get comfortable, but must be registered and checked-in with a name tag just like volunteers. If the visit becomes extended, we will require a driver’s license and background screening.
Hygiene and Cleanliness
For the safety of our children and volunteers, all linens and aprons are washed, all toys are disinfected, and table surfaces are sanitized after each use. Volunteers wear non-latex gloves when changing diapers or helping with toilet training. Handwashing is practiced by both volunteers and children while in the nursery.
Please let us know about all food allergies for your child at check-in. We provide gold fish, animal crackers, toasted oats, and apple juice.
Diaper Changing and Toilet Training
For diaper changing and toilet training, please let us know at check-in if you would like to be notified via pager when your child’s diaper needs to be changed for you to come do that yourself or come help with toilet training. Otherwise, we would be glad to change diapers and help with toilet training for you. Privacy will be considered, but no volunteer will be alone with any child with the door closed.
Health and Safety
In order to insure the safety and health of other children and volunteers, please do not bring your child if they have had any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours: Cold Symptoms, Nasal Discharge, Fever, Vomiting, Diarrhea, Sore Throat, Skin Rash, Cold Sores, Measles, Chicken Pox, Impetigo, Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye). In addition, children experiencing severe allergy symptoms (runny nose, coughing, sneezing). should stay at home as it is difficult to differentiate between allergies and a cold in early stages.
When you are ready to pick up your child from the nursery, you (or your spouse or grandparent) must have the pager and bar code that corresponds to your child or they will not be released. Thank you, again, for entrusting your gift from God to us to care for them while you experience a life changing, ever growing relationship with Jesus through the ministries of PBC.
Please contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or specific requests.
