Look What We Will Be Talking About Next Week on About the Children's Department!

For the past three weeks I've been talking about Sunday School curriculum but next week I'll be taking a look at resources for the church nursery and will focus on nursery safety! It truly matters if our nurseries are safe . . . from the toys and furnishings to the screening and training of the volunteers. If the church nursery isn't clean and safe, parents will not leave their precious child . . . as they well shouldn't. After my daughter was born, my husband and I moved . . . we visited a local church and put her in their nursery. After the service when I arrived to pick her up I saw she was in a crib/cage on one side of the nursery crying by herself, while the teen nursery workers played with the "church babies" on the other side of the nursery. We never went back to that church.

In the coming week I'll post safe nursery policies, information on resources you could use in your nursery and reviews of toys and furnishings. It will be a fun week . . . please be sure to join in the conversations!
