Nursery

Welcome to the Redeemer Nursery! The nursery is a busy, joyful corner of the church open to children ages 3 months through 48 months/4 years.

Our nursery rooms are supervised by paid staff and trained volunteers from the congregation. All of our staff and volunteers have completed Redeemer's volunteer application process and have passed a background check. Redeemer's Child Protection Policies can be read here. If this is your first visit to Redeemer, you may pre-register your child for the nursery here or plan for a few extra minutes on Sunday morning to allow our nursery greeter to assist you.

We enforce a gluten-free and nut-free policy in the nursery for the safety of children with food allergies. Starting in our toddler rooms, we serve a snack that complies with this allergen policy. Please do not send food into the nursery with your child.

Inside the nursery, there is a nursing mothers' room available and equipped with rocking chairs, a changing table, and an audio feed of the service for your use as needed.

Our nursery rooms are organized by developmental stage and age:

  • Infants: Babies 3 months through early walking.
  • Cruisers: Strong walkers through younger twos.
  • * Older 2s and Younger 3s: Children ages 2.5 through 3.5
  • * Older 3s and Preschoolers: Children ages 3.5 and up. By the time children turn 4 years old, we encourage families to begin the transition into the worship service and Training in the Pews.

* In these nursery rooms, we offer a Bible lesson, singing and craft time during the 10:45 service when Christian Education is in session (late August through mid-May, with breaks in observance of school holidays).

Sickness policy

Please exercise good judgment and love for your neighbor as you evaluate whether your child is healthy enough to be in the nursery. For the well being of all our children we ask that children remain at home if they are exhibiting the following symptoms:

  • Cold symptoms such as heavy coughing, excessive sneezing, yellowish discharge from the eyes or nose.
  • A temperature of 100.5 degrees or greater in the last 24 hours.
  • Vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours.
  • Questionable rashes.
  • If an adult in the nursery observes these or other symptoms of illness, parents may be called to remove their child.

Other tips to help things go smoothly

  • Please label all belongings such as sippy cups and pacifiers.
  • Please keep your cell phone with you so that we can contact you if needed.

If you have any questions before your visit or if we can help you in any way, please reach out to Nursery Coordinator Georgianna Hildrebrand at georgianna@redeemersa.org
