The PUMC nursery is available for infants and toddlers up to age 4. It is a caring, nurturing environment where your child can experience God’s love. It provides parents the opportunity to worship and attend adult Sunday School classes knowing that their young children are in a safe and nurturing place.

The nursery is open on Sunday mornings from 8:50 am to 12:15 pm, and special services. No reservations are required.

We now have a crib room, a toddler room and a 3 & 4 year old Sunday School class. When you enter the 3-room nursery suite the crib room is on the right, the 3 & 4 year old Sunday School class is in the middle and the toddler room is on the left.

Signing In – On your 1st visit you are given an information card to complete for each child who attends. In case of emergencies, we will contact you at the cell phone numbers you list on the card.

What to bring – Please bring a labeled bag which includes a pacifier (if your child uses one), at least two diapers, a change of clothes and all personal items your child may need such as wipes, ointment, bottles and/or comfort blankets. All personal items should be labeled before arrival. If you forget diapers and wipes, we have some on hand.

Health guidelines – For the protection of all children and volunteers, please do not bring your child to the nusery if he or she is ill. If a child becomes ill while in the nursery, the parents will be asked to take the child home. Nursery staff cannot administer medication. Children who have experienced any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours should not come to the nursery: fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, undiagnosed rashes or sores, on-going cough, runny eyes or nose, and/or symptoms of childhood illnesses such as measles, chicken pox, mumps, influenza, strep throat or head lice.

Volunteers – Experienced caregivers serve in the nursery. There are a minimum of 4 adult volunteers in the nursery at all times. The volunteers have received Safe Sanctuary training required by PUMC. To learn more about our volunteers, or if you would like to serve in the nursery, contact Cathy Welton or Angel Ruff at nursery@pendletonumc.com.
