Nursery Care

Two separate entities provide child care for siblings when a parent is working in the classroom — FUMC Nursery and Parent’s Day Out.


MONDAY and WEDNESDAY Child care is provided for younger siblings by the First United Methodist Church nursery.  The hours are from 8:45 AM-12  on Mondays and Wednesdays.  FUMC nursery is always staffed with at least two caregivers.  Caregivers are trained in CPR and First Aide as well as having complete background checks. 

  • The cost for each session is $15.00 per child, $1.00 for each additional child in the family.

  • Parents must remain at the church at all times due to state regulations for licensure-exempt child care facilities.


TUESDAY and THURSDAY Child care is provided by the Parent’s Day Out program.  This is a licensed drop-in day care program with hours from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for 1-2 year-olds and 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM for 3-6 year-olds.  The following guidelines must be met in order to use this program.


FRIDAY child care is provided by the Parent’s Day Out program for 3-6 year-olds with hours from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Same procedures and guidelines as above apply.


  • Children are registered at 9:00 AM on the day in which care is needed.  The teachers will open the doors by 9:00 AM.  Payment is made when you retrieve your child.

  • Reservations are recommended but not required and may be made one week in advance in person (after the appropriate paperwork has been completed).  Payment is due at the time reservations are made.

  • Because Parent’s Day Out is a licensed day care program, parents may leave the building.  Children may stay any length of time.  If a child will stay past noon, a sack lunch will need to be provided by the parents.  Snacks are provided by the program.

  • The program is available for children age 1 (and walking) to 6 years.

  • The cost is $8.00/hour for the first child and $7.00/hour for each additional child.  There is a 1 hour minimum for one year olds and a 2 hour minimum for 2-6 year olds.

  • Paperwork and proof of vaccination is required prior to leaving your child for the first time, and a $20 non-refundable registration fee applies.
