Room 103 in the Preschool Wing of the Parish Center
Welcome to the Nursery at Christ Church!  Nursery hours are from 8:45 AM to 12:15 PM on Sunday mornings (9:45 to 11:30 AM in the summer).  We look forward to seeing you and welcoming your children. The Nursery is held in the Christ Church Episcopal Preschool's Busy Bee's room.  The room is designed for children younger than age 3.

Please provide in a labeled bag:

  • diapers, wipes
  • sippy cup if your child is not old enough to drink from a regular cup

We provide as a snack:

  • goldfish crackers
  • apple juice

If you would prefer your child is not offered goldfish crackers and apple juice, please let the child care provider know and provide an alternative snack if needed.

We do:

  • Play outside when the weather permits.  Please have appropriate outerwear available.
  • Show age-appropriate children's DVDs and videos
  • Provide a loving, safe environment for children.  We believe the Nursery is a very important ministry of Christ Church.

Please complete our registration form.  It is important that we have information about your child and contact information in case of an emergency.
