Nursery (Newborn - 35 Months)
We know how hard it can be to leave your brand new little one in someone else’s care. Here at Salem Evangelical we try to make that transition as painless as possible. Welcoming arms will meet you at the check in counter where you can pick up a pager and leave instructions on the care of your child. Although our pagers are primarily used in the nursery they are available to pick up at the nursery counter for children in the Weebles and Beginners classes as well. You can relax and know you are only a page away while your children are in a safe, loving environment. Our goal is to nurture your child while you nurture your soul. Our nursery staff is here to hold, rock, feed, change and love on your little one(s). We are here for you!
A private room for nursing mothers is located in our main nursery. We provide access to this room through a private door off the main hallway. There is a live feed from the sanctuary available to you so you won't miss worship or the sermon. Water as well as a changing station can be found in this special room. Nursing mothers only please!
Weebles (9 months to 12-15 months)
As your little one(s) start to grow and explore, we have the perfect environment for them as they transition. Our Weebles children range in age from from 9 months to 12-15 months. All kids not yet walking with confidence are cared for by our loving volunteers, who are here to hold, rock, feed, change and play with your baby. On your first visit, you will need to register your child at the Acorn Acres counter to inform us of any allergies your child may have and leave any other instructions that we may need.
Beginners (12 months-24 months)
What fun awaits your toddler(s) as they are now becoming more and more independent and wanting to express themselves accordingly! On your first visit to our church you will need to go to the Acorn Acres counter in the middle of the Acorn Acres hall and fill out a registration form. This will give you an opportunity to inform us of any allergies your child may have and leave any other instructions we may need. Beginner children range in age from 12 - 35 months. Children move to the preschool 2's class when their second birthday happens before the Sept. 10th of the current school year. Volunteers here love to play, read, sing, laugh and enjoy pretend play, as well as bubble blowing and other fun activities. Also included in the care of your child/children, is diaper changing, rocking, and the occasional nap time for those sleepy kiddos. Pagers, although primarily used in the nursery, are available to pick up at the nursery counter or Acorn Acres counter for children in the Weebles and Beginners classes as well. You can relax and know your child is in a safe, loving environment.
Childcare is available in the Beginner's classroom for the following services:
Sunday Mornings 9:15am & 11:00am
