Infant and Toddlers (Birth to 24 months)


Nursery Director: Penny Jannay

Birth to 23 months: Our Children's ministry wants every family and baby to enjoy their time of worship here at Rainbow. The Nursery is often the first impression a family has of our church. We want your baby's first church experience to be warm and meaningful. So, we provide a safe and clean enviornment. Our cribs and toys are carefully cleaned and santized every week. We have wonderful nursery volunteer leaders who are eager to receive your child, when you arrive at the classroom door. 

What to Bring:  Please bring a diaper bag which includes an extra change of clothes, at least 2 diapers, wipes, bottle or sippy cup, pacifier and any other comfort items such as blanket or stuffed animal. All personal items should be labeled before arrival.  In case you forget diapers and wipes, we have those on hand.  

Alert System and Check-In Procedure:  The first Sunday you arrive, please stop by our Registration desk in our Children's foyer. Volunteers will be glad to assist you in registratering your family and child on our kiosk system. We ask that you provide any pertinent information that the nursery volunteer leader will need to know (allergies, feeding times, etc). A pager and the number of the pager will be assigned to all children who register from Birth to Kindergarten. The kiosk will print out 2 labels. One for your child and one for your diaper bag. We ask that you put one label on the back of your child and the other on your diaper bag. You will be given the matching pager that is listed on the label. Please be careful not to misplace the pager. In order to pick up your child, you will need to give your pager to the nursery volunteer and they will verify that the pager matches the number on the label of the child/diaper bag. IF any problems occur while caring for your child during service times, your pager will vibrate. Simply come to the children's center and the Floor Director or the Nursery volunteer leader will assess the situation with you.

Illness and Diseases: For the safety of all of our little ones, we do ask that you do NOT bring your child to the nursery if he/she is sick. Some signs of illness in a child are unusual fatigue or irritability, coughing, sneezing, runny nose and eyes, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, inflammed mouth and throat, unusual drowsiness, loss of appitite or hoarseness. You may bring your child to our service and if needed you can use IC103 to watch/hear the sermon.
