Nursery on Wednesdays

Infants – 23 Months

What to Expect

We understand that leaving your child in an unfamiliar place can be overwhelming. To help with this transition, we want you to know a few things to bring you peace of mind.

We have separate infant (0-12 mo.) and toddler (up to 23 mo.) age appropriate rooms. Our goal is to ensure your child is safe, nurtured, and cared for. At our check-in station, your child will receive a security badge with their name and necessary information. You will hold onto the other portion of the security badge until pick up. We will text the cell number that you provide if we should need you for any reason.

We know there is a lot of transition during this time and we are here to accommodate the specific needs of each child. Whether it is feeding, how long to let cry, or special items to help them sooth; know that we value your trust in knowing that they will be given the best care possible. 

What to Bring

Please bring diapers, bottles, pacifiers, and any special blankets that will soothe your baby throughout their time with us.


Teachable 2’s

What to Expect

Once a child turns 2 they are promoted to our Teachable 2’s class. The kids participate in an interactive bible story, worship time, craft time and snack time. We serve gold fish and animal crackers for snack. If there are any allergies we have special stickers and make sure the staff are aware of them.

Just 3’s

What to Expect

Just 3's is a preschool class designed for those who are not yet independently potty trained. They have a snack and participate in songs, crafts, play and story time.

What to Bring

We will change your child into their pajamas if you desire. If your child has any allergies, please bring an appropriate snack from home. We also ask that you bring his or her own sippy cup so your child will have something to drink at snack time. We strongly encourage that no toys from home are brought to church. 


Midweek Nursery Hours

Our nursery is open at 6:45 PM on Wednesday evenings to allow moms and dads who are attending 7:00 PM activities ample time to drop off their little one. For parents attending 6:00 PM workshops, you may drop off your child as early as 5:45 PM. If you are not attending a 6:00 PM workshop or activity, we kindly ask you to keep your child with you until the regular 6:45 PM check in time, as we are not fully staffed until then.


Safety & Security

Safety and security are very important to us here at Portland Kids. We use a state of the art security system throughout our children's classes so we can ensure the safety of each and every child and that a parent can be located when their child needs them. Whoever picks up a child from the nursery must have the security badge number that is printed at check-in.
