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. 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. Krista Allen is our Nursery Coordinator, and she is CPR/First Aid certified.
 
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.
