The staff of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Community’s nursery is delighted to have the opportunity to care for your young children. We strive to provide a safe and loving atmosphere for each precious child in our care.
In order to help ensure that your child has the best experience while in the care the nursery and to help us meet our safety requirements the following guidelines are provided.
Availability of Nursery
The nursery is open for Sunday masses at 8:15 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 11:45 a.m. There is a maximum of ten children at any mass time.
Please sign in your child at the interior nursery door. A flashing/vibrating pager will be issued to you at the time sign in. The pager needs to be returned when picking up your child. After your child is signed in, a caregiver will take your child inside and make him/her comfortable. All caregivers will be wearing a nametag for identification.
Please tell your child good-bye and that you will come and get him/her after church. Leave immediately, even if your child begins to cry. If your child continues to be upset, the sitters will page you as quickly as possible. We will also asked for a cell phone number, so please leave your cell phone on vibrate during mass.
Please sign your child our and return the pager. Your child will be released to at the door. This will lessen the confusion of a child wandering away unsupervised.
Please label all of your child’s personal belongings, including bottles, cups, pacifiers and diaper bags.
The nursery does not provide snacks. If you would like for your child to have a snack, you may send a dry snack (crackers, goldfish, cereal). We ask that you do not bring any snack with peanut products. There are many children who are highly allergic to peanuts, peanut snacks, peanut butter, etc.
For the health and safety of all the children in our care, no child will be accepted in the nursery if he/she exhibits any of the following symptoms:
- Fever with the last 24 hours
- Running nose with yellow or green discharge
- Sore throat
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Any unexplained rash
