Scheduling Nursery Care for an Event

First, contact your group leader, who will complete the event reservation form and submit it to our scheduling coordinator. It is important to give the approximate ages and number of children attending as well as any special needs we should prepare to accommodate. Reservations for childcare must be made at least 72 hours in advance and cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

The fee for childcare is $20/hour which provides you with two nursery workers that can care for up to 12 children. Our Safe Sanctuary policy requires a minimum of two sitters at all times.

Should it occur that we have two or more events requiring nursery care scheduled for the same time frame, the cost will be equally shared by all groups thereby reducing the cost for everyone.

Nursery Policies

All children must have an ID card on file. This will be kept in the nursery for one year. Please inform the sitter of any changes that may occur.

There will be a sign in sheet by the door with each scheduled activity’s name. Prior to admittance, the sign in sheet must be completed with the child’s name, age, parent location, allergy alerts, and pick up time.

After signing in, both parent and child will be issued matching ID bracelets, which are required to be worn at all times. Children will only be released to the adult wearing a matching ID bracelet, or to an adult whose name is listed as authorized to pick up on the ID card on file in the nursery.

All items brought into the nursery must be labeled with the child’s name. This includes diaper bags, bottles, cups, blanket or anything else your child might need during their visit.
