Children's Ministry Health & Safety Plan
Young Meadow’s Children’s Ministry will be reopening our Nursery on September 20 for both the 9am Bridge Service and 11am Traditional Service. We want to continue to provide your children with a safe, clean environment free from Covid and any communicable illnesses. There will be additional cleaning, sanitizing and safety measures put in place throughout the time. We ask that you do what is most comfortable for your family; so sending your child to the Nursery will be “at your own risk”. The Youth Room will still be available for families during both services.
-Nursery is for children ages birth through age three.
-Reservations must be made by Saturday afternoon prior to the service.
-Please bring only what your child needs and nothing extra. Label all items. Diaper bags will be left in the hall. Diapers will not be changed unless absolutely necessary since children will only be there for the hour.
-We will be utilizing a No Touch Check-In by a scanned QR code from your phone. Please update your information on the registration form. You will be both emailed and texted your families QR code.
-Masks will be required for all childcare workers and parents. Masks for children ages six and below will be left to the parent’s discretion.
-We ask that only one parent enter the hallway to pick up their child after the service.
-There will be a maximum of 6 children and 2 masked adults.
There will be a temperature check performed on every child before they enter the children’s area. Any child with a temperature above 100.4 will not be allowed to stay. If your child, or anyone in your immediate household has been exposed to a positive Covid case in the past 14 days, please do not attend or send your child.
Children attending the program should be in good health and free from communicable disease. Children should be free of fever (without fever reducing medication), diarrhea or vomiting symptoms for at least 48 hours before attending. Parents will be called and required to come pick up their child if any symptoms appear.
