The desire of Central Preschool Ministry is to provide the best experience possible for your child while they are in our care. We are providing you the policies and guidelines so you can help us do that. Should you have any questions with regard to anything these policies, please contact us and we will be happy to visit with you. It is a privilege for us to minister to your child and we are thankful and blessed for the opportunity each week.
1. Childcare will be available 15 minutes before any scheduled function/service begins.
2. Parents should pick up the child immediately following services or church functions. Childcare will remain open for 15 minutes after services close.
3. Do not bring any children other than your own family which you have legal custody of to any weekday nursery for childcare. This does not include Sunday morning, evening, or Wednesday night activities. This does include Inneract Bible Studies and Central Moms.
4. All preschoolers must be signed in at the nursery counter and assigned a pager.
5. A parent or guardian must remain on Central property while your child is in our care, unless it is an event scheduled off church property (i.e. Friday Night Out).
1. Parents of any preschooler enrolled in Sunday School age 4 and under are expected to work an extended session during worship time.
2. To avoid congestion in the Preschool area, have only one parent bring and pick up your child. Children will only be released to an adult with the corresponding pager for that child.
3. Please do not leave your child in an unattended room.
4. Please do not enter the room when delivering or receiving your child. Observing this policy will relieve congestion in the room and keep children from being upset when a new person enters the room. If you must check on your child, please see the Nursery Assistant. They will check on your child for you. Parents will be called promptly if needed for any reason.
5. Label everything with permanent marker! (cups, lids, pacifiers, blankets, bottles, bags, etc.) Please do not send toys from home unless it is teething toy.
6. Please avoid long conversations with caregivers at the door because we feel your child should receive our undivided attention after he/she arrives. If you have a matter that needs attention, please see the Nursery Assistant and we can make arrangements to meet with the teacher.
7. The Preschool Facility is designed to ensure safety and a positive learning atmosphere for all children in our care. If a child misbehaves, they will be separated from the group for a short period of time. No physical punishment will ever be administered. If a child is seriously disobedient or abusive to other children or the teachers, their parents will be contacted and asked to pick up their child.
8. When your child has met a new developmental skill and has accomplished it well, together, the Nursery Director and the parent decide when to move your child to the next class.
9. Workers will not give medication of any kind to any child.
10. Conditions that would make it necessary for your child to be cared for at home:
Fever in the past 24 hours
Green or yellow runny nose
Sore throat or croup
An unexpected rash or skin infection
Pink eye or any other eye infections
Vomiting and/or diarrhea
Any symptom of usual childhood diseases
** If your child arrives with any of these conditions, we will require that you keep them with you. If any of these conditions develop after being checked in, you will be contacted and asked to pick up your child. Please feel free to ask for clarification of this policy.
1. Please advise the nursery counter of any allergies your child may have. We provide allergy stickers for the protection of your child. Also, please note allergies on the sign in sheet at your child’s room.
2. Snacks and water will be offered while your child is in our care. If special snacks are served a notice will be posted on the door of each room. Please advise the teacher and/or nursery director if you do not want your child to have the snack. We do encourage you to send a labeled sippy cup for your child.
3. Please do not bring meals or snacks from home for your child (except for children with allergies). The children are being taught how to share; thus it causes conflicts in the room when you bring food in for your child only.
4. For our younger kids, we ask that bottles be prepared, ready to serve, and fully labeled. We cannot mix your child’s bottle; however, we will heat it if you request.
5. No baby food will be fed by the childcare workers during normal nursery hours.
* These policies can be changed or amended at any time by the Director of Preschool Ministry or Central Baptist Church staff.
