Here's what to expect during your visit to VHC Nursery!
If it is your first time, please don't hesitate to ask for a tour. We know it is not always easy walking into a new place!
VHC KIDS CHECK-IN
As you and your child arrive at our Kids Check-In, you will be greeted by a member of our VHC Kids team! You will be asked to fill out a family registration card, and once you register, you will receive a name tag for your child and a corresponding security tag for yourself. Please alert our Check-In volunteers of any information that will help in caring for your child, such as allergies or special needs.
WHERE TO GO AFTER CHECK-IN
You and your child will be guided to the Nursery where a VHC Kids volunteer will meet you at the door to welcome your child! Please inform volunteers of any specific instructions you may have for your child. We ask that you bring as few items as necessary to the Nursery. For example, one diaper is plenty, along with a bottle if feeding will be needed during service. We will have plenty of books and toys for your little one to enjoy! Please label all personal items you plan to leave with our volunteers with your child’s first and last name before arriving.
DROP OFF & ENJOY SERVICE
After you have completed the Check-In process & taken your child to his or her room, wave a quick good-bye & head into the adult worship service! As you know, it is common for little ones to cry when a parent leaves, and if this happens our colunteers will immediately engage your child in a toy or activity and ensure your child that you will return soon. If your child cries for an extended period of time, we will text to the number you provided or have an usher come get you!
When the time comes to pick up your child, please return to the Nursery and present your security tag to the VHC Kids volunteer at the door. The tag will be matched to your child’s name tag before he/she will be released into your care. Please know that we are asking everyone except volunteers to stay outside of the Nursery door due to cleaning and safety precautions we are taking at this time due to COVID 19. Thank you for helping us with this!
