The MUMC Nursery purpose is to connect children to Jesus at an early age and to provide a safe, loving, fun church environment for your child. The nursery is staffed for children 6 years and under every Sunday from 10:45 AM – 12:15 PM in the “Education” Building . The nursery is also available for special occasions on request, with a two week notice.
Our nursery staff is highly qualified and experienced. Dedicated church members also volunteer to help staff members on a regular basis. MUMC has newly renovated nursery classrooms (to be officially dedicated August 27, 2017) with updated furniture, equipment, and toys.
Which room does my child go to?
Infants to 18 mo.s (not potty trained) go to the green room and 18 mos to 6 yrs go to the blue room. The blue room is currently divided by 18 mos – 3 yrs (front half) and 4 yrs – 6 yrs (back half).
What can I expect when I arrive?
You and your child will be greeted by one of our staff members. If this is your first visit you will be asked to fill out a registration form with important requested information that the helps the staff with your child’s needs. Each Sunday thereafter you are required to fill in the sign-in/sign-out sheet when drop-off and pick-up your child.
Can I check on my child during church?
You are welcome to check on your child during church. There is a one way viewing window in the hallway for the 18 mo – 6 yr old classroom and an window in the door (please “peek discretely” through the door windows so the children do not see you and think it’s time for pick-up) of the infant room for this purpose.
What is your health policy?
If your child is sick or has been on anti-antibiotics for less than 24 hours, please do not bring him/her to the nursery. Children who are greeted with; a runny nose, cough, vomiting, diarrhea, unknown rash, or a discharge from eyes, will not be allowed to be signed-in. If a child becomes visibly ill after being signed-in, he/she will be removed from the nursery in the care of a nursery worker, and the parents will be contacted immediately.
What will my child do while in class?
Class time is divided between age appropriate bible lessons, music, play and snack time.
