Open from 7:30am to 12:30pm* every Sunday, as well as during our monthly evensong services and other special events. To inquire about nursery care for a specific event, please contact the church office.
All Souls' is delighted to welcome infants and young children to our spacious, professionally staffed nursery. Our "smallest souls" will enjoy playing with a variety of toys for each phase of their development, and they will also likely make their very first church friends as they see the familiar faces of caregivers and other children week to week.
Although nursery time is not structured or guided by curriculum, in this setting children begin to learn about God, themselves, and community. They know that they are loved and valued and that they belong in our church family. They learn about welcoming new friends, cooperating, and taking turns. They discover new games, new skills, new jokes, and new ideas. And, we hope, they will come to understand that God's presence is always with us, whether in the church, in the nursery, or in everyday life.
We understand that leaving your child with a new caregiver or in a new setting can produce anxiety at first, especially for new parents. Please be assured that our nursery staff have completed background checks, Safeguarding God's People training, and have many years of experience with infants and young children. Although the nursery is just a quick walk across the courtyard from the church, if you would prefer to connect with our staff by text message during the service to check on your little ones, they would be happy to reassure you.
*Please note that during the school year, Sunday School and children's worship are available for preschoolers and above from 9:10 until 11:30. In order to provide the best possible care for our youngest members during these busy hours, we request that children ages 4 and above participate in our children's ministry programs during those times, whenever possible.
