Infants

Birth - Beginning walkers

Children are a priority at HOPE and it is our desire that both parents and children will feel at home in our nursery. 

 

Our primary purpose is to facilitate and enhance your family’s time of worship, study and service by providing a safe, sanitary, and loving environment for your child.

When your child can walk confidently and at least 12 months old, they will then move up to our Walkers room. The Ministry Leader will inform you when it is time.

Our check-in system keeps track of all children, and adheres to a strict pick-up policy using a unique tag code.

Each classroom has a 2-way radio where the teachers can communicate with the Registration Team in an emergency situation.

 

We also do not serve any peanut snacks or food processed near peanuts.
