While infants and toddlers are welcome to attend Sunday services, free childcare is available in the nursery during this time each week. The nursery has age-appropriate, fun, and wholesome toys, and is supervised by childcare coordinator Sarrah Smith and childcare staff member Katie Murphy.
The nursery is located on the church’s lower level in room L04. On Sundays with two services, the nursery is open 8:45 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. On single-service Sundays, the nursery is open 9:45 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Parents are asked to bring a diaper bag with a change of clothing and a snack for your child. We also ask that parents fill out a childcare registration form, which is available from childcare staff during Sunday nursery hours.
Childcare is also provided for children of all ages on Sundays when there is no religious education, as well as at specified First Parish events. If you would like care for your child at a First Parish event that includes childcare, please provide advance notice to the Childcare Committee so that we can staff the event appropriately.
We welcome interested First Parish youth to join the new childcare team and assist or sub on Sundays and supervise kids at First Parish events. To learn more about participating in childcare at First Parish, or with any other questions about childcare, please contact the Childcare Committee (Heather Black and Tina Nappi) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
