The Grove (Birth to 3 Years Old)

The Grove is our state-of-the-art nursery where we provide a warm, caring environment for each child. The Grove is open during every service. It is staffed by both paid and volunteer workers. Each nursery class includes a wide variety of playtime activities for each age group, as well as Bible lessons that correspond with the message in the Main Services.

You may register your child at one of the nursery welcome counters. Children under 2 years old will register at "The Pond", while children 2 and 3 years old will register at "The Meadow".

The spiritual development & safety of each child is of primary concern at First NLR!

Our General Policies:

The Grove opens 30 minutes prior to each service/event.

Children are to be brought to the age-appropriate check-in counter by a parent/guardian and will only be released to the parent/guardian with a Parent Pick-Up Sticker.

Parents/Guardians should come for their children immediately following the service or event they have attended.

Please see that items belonging to your child are properly and clearly labeled. This should include: diaper bag, diapers, plastic bottles/cups, pacifiers, drinking cups, and blankets.

Babies will be fed pre-measured formula, milk, or juice as provided only by the parent/guardian. Toddlers will be provided with a snack and water. Time and circumstances do not allow for any other type of feeding (including spoon-feeding infants).

We try everything in our abilities to calm an upset child for up to 15 minutes. After that, we will call the parent/guardian. That time frame can be catered for each family until the child feels comfortable staying in the Grove.
