Yes! It’s happening!!
I can’t believe it’s been over a year since we closed our nursery doors! We won’t even have the same kids in the nursery when we get back. In fact, I have seen some of them in the hallways and I can’t believe they are the little ones that were in the nursery when we closed down back in March of 2020. We are so ready to open our doors and invite you and your little ones in. We will be having our “Grand Opening” on Mother’s Day, May 9th for both services.
Parents, What we need from you in the next couple of weeks is to come down to the Kids Zone and go to the Bethel Kids Connect Booth, which is across from the bathrooms. Tell the person attending the booth that you will be putting your child into the nursery when it opens and you need to fill out a New Family Information Card. This card will have your new child’s information on it so we can get it into the system before we open up and you will be able to do check-in easily the morning of. Thank you so much, we can’t wait to serve you and your family!
If you are interested in joining our team and serving families with little ones, you can go here
to find out more and have someone contact you to answer any questions you may have.
If you are new to the nursery, this parts for you.
Our nursery has three different rooms that are based on developmental stages.
Infants - This room is for babies who are not mobile yet. It has toys that are appropriate for this stage; floor play gyms, sitting play stations, infant bouncers, and swings. We have rocking chairs, blankets, and toys for the servers to be able to hold the child while rocking, feeding, or playing with them.
Crawler - This room is for children who are rolling, crawling, scooting, or any other mobility other than walking. It is equipped with more interactive play, items they can pull themselves up on, and toys they can crawl after and on.
Toddler - This room is for little ones who are toddling around and walking easily. It has play stations where they can pretend, play, and learn. In this room, we begin having them sit for snacks, sing songs with actions, pray, and do a simple craft that goes with our lesson.
Our servers - Our servers love your kids! They are excited to be there to love and play with them, to teach them that they are fearfully and wonderfully made by God, and to watch them grow and learn. They are there to serve you too. They want you to be able to go to church and enjoy the service while caring for your child.
Our parents - Our parents can know that their child is getting the best care while they are in church. We want you to be able to put all your attention into being in the service without having to worry if things are okay. If your child is not happy and doing well in the nursery, we will page you with your call number immediately and you can either take them into the service with you or moms you can watch the service from the nursing room. We encourage parents to come to get their child and then try leaving them again once they have settled down. Sometimes just knowing mom or dad will come back is enough for them to adjust. We also let you come in and stay with them until they and you feel comfortable with the room and servers.
