SNACK & FOOD ALLERGIES
Cheerios are the only snack served. Please notify the staff if your child has food allergies or you do not wish your child to participate in snack. Please do not ask workers to feed food from home, except for bottles or juice.
BEHAVIOR IN THE NURSERY
Some children have a difficult time separating from parents. While it may seem best to disappear as soon as the child is distracted, we believe there should be a firm & short goodbye. While this may seem challenging at first, in the long run it is the healthiest situation.
Our primary goal in the nursery is to provide a safe & pleasant environment for the children. We ask that if a child is having a hard time adjusting that you allow our volunteers the opportunity to soothe & comfort your child in your absence. If within 5-10 minutes all efforts have been exhausted we will page you immediately. If aggressive behavior is observed we will ask that the parent either remove the child immediately or stay with the child until the behavior is no longer a problem.
Contributions are always welcome but are not mandatory.
If you plan to make a contribution please consider:
- Dixie Cups
- any size batteries
Other wonderful ideas include:
- board books
- wooden puzzles
- child size musical instruments
HEALTH & HYGIENE POLICY
Each week the nursery is cleaned & sanitized for your child's protection. After each service, any "mouthed" toys are placed in the dirty toy bin & sanitized. Used linens are placed in the laundry bin.
For the protection of ALL the children we serve, please DO NOT bring your child with:
- Any degree of fever
- Eye or ear discharge
- Yellow-ish or green nasal discharge
- Chronic or loose cough
- Vomiting or Diarrhea in last 24 hours
- Acute diseases: pinkeye, chicken pox, etc.
- Skin Infections
Nursery volunteers are not allowed to give medication of any kind.
If your child is being treated with antibiotics, he/she should be on the drug for at least 24 hours before coming into the Nursery.
Volunteers will not admit a child with any of these conditions. If your child has allergies or other non-contagious medical problems, please notify the Nursery Coordinator.
Thank you for adhering to this policy.
