UMC Anoka Nursery

Parents, welcome to our church nursery!

For parents with babies and young children, ages infant to 3-years old, we offer a nursery at both the 8:30am and 10:00am worship services. The nursery hours are 8:00 – 11:30. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, our hours are 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. We use cell phone texts to stay in contact with parents.
 
Our nursery is on the second floor of the Sunday school wing and is staffed with paid nursery assistants. 
 
Procedures:
 
~Please fill out the sign-in sheet on the counter. If this is your first time in the nursery please complete a registration form so we can better care for your child.
~Make sure your child’s diaper bag and other personal items are labeled.
~The parent or adult who signs the child in should be the same one who picks up and signs out the child.
~Be sure to note your cell phone number next to your child’s name on the sign-in sheet so we can text you if necessary.
 
Saying goodbye with a smile  
 
While most young infants make a smooth transition into the nursery, around 6-8 months most babies experience some degree of separation anxiety. This is actually a healthy stage, a sign that the baby is beginning to understand himself/herself as separate from the parent.
A regular routine when dropping off and picking up your child will help as will regular attendance. If your child cries when you leave the nursery please rest assured he/she will likely stop in just a few minutes.
 
Note: No nursery is offered on Memorial weekend, July 4th weekend and Labor Day weekend.
