Infant and Toddler Nursery (up to age 3yrs.) is offered during all Sunday services and the Sunday School hour.
Parents will complete the Child Registration Form during their first visit to the nursery. You can download one here and bring it with you.
Children will be loved and cared for by our team of Volunteers. Activities include biblically based music and story, free play and age appropriate hands-on activities. Children will also learn how to make friends, take turns, and pray for their families. Simple snacks are served. Many activities will help prepare them to move out of the nursery and into our Preschool class.
As children turn three, we work with you and the Preschool teachers to make the transition to the classroom a positive experience. Children who are not potty trained or need a little more time are welcome to stay until the Nursery Coordinators and parents agree it is time for them to move.
Safety and Security
Each parent is given a pager so we can call you if your little one needs your care. This will also ensure their safety, since children are not released from the nursery without the assigned pager.
All Volunteers are carefully screened, receive an orientation and are supervised to provide the best in safety for your child. Specialized training is offered twice a year, including Infant & Child CPR and Pediatric First Aid.
Nursery Coordinators for each service, provide a consistent face in the nursery for you and your child to know and trust. They ensure that all activities are age appropriate for your child and that the nursery is well staffed to maintain safe child/staff ratios.
It’s our pleasure to give you the freedom to worship and fellowship while you are here at E-Free. We do encourage parents to serve in our nurseries once a month, but we also understand if you are unable to do so.

Sick Child Policy
Our Nursery Coordinators will strictly enforce the following guidelines in order to maintain a healthy environment for all children. Please do not ask them to make exceptions.
Please do not leave your child in the nursery if they exhibit any of these symptoms:
Fever (within 24 hrs)
Vomiting/Diarrhea (within 24 hrs)
Active Chicken Pox
Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) If your child is being treated with antibiotics, he/she should be on the medication for at least 24 hours before coming to the nursery.
You may leave your child if he/she has a continually runny nose or rash due to non-contagious allergies.
