Nursery & Preschool
We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our children to experience and grow in relationship with God in the life of the church. We have created a Child Protection Policy and will be reviewing and implementing it in the coming months. Our top three safety practices are:
Two Adult Practice
At least two unrelated adults present in each room or with each group of children or youth.
Open Door Practice
Volunteers avoid situations where they could be out of sight of others by keeping doors open or using rooms with windows in the doors.
Required Reporting Practice
Volunteers immediately report any sign of injury or possible abuse to staff supervisor.
“JESUS SAID, ‘LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME’
…AND HE TOOK THE CHILDREN IN HIS ARMS, PUT HIS HANDS ON THEM AND BLESSED THEM.”
MARK 10:14, 16
The nursery at Westminster encourages the physical, emotional, and spiritual growth of our youngest congregants. Each Sunday, nursery care for infants and children thru K4 is available during worship and Sunday School. Each room is equipped with a parent paging system. Nurseries are staffed with professional caregivers, assisted by parent volunteers and Sunday Sitters.
