Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Our nursery provides care for children ages birth through three years old and is available during the 11:00 service. Our church strives to provide a safe learning environment staffed with responsible, trained individuals who lovingly care for your children while you enjoy quiet worship time and encouraging, relevant messages.  This information is designed to help familiarize you with how we care for your babies, infants, and toddlers. Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your family. 


The first time your child is placed in the nursery, you will be asked to fill out an information card. This will give the nursery workers some background information on your child to aid them in ministering to him or her.  This information will be kept on file in the nursery for future reference. Privacy is very important at South Bay and no information will ever be shared with anyone outside the church.


The nursery is located on the second floor of our building in the Kids’ Club area. Please see a greeter or usher for a tour of the nursery area.

Nursery staffing

Each nursery worker is required to be a member of our church and has gone through a screening process and background check to ensure your child’s safety. Every worker has experience taking care of children, and they are dedicated servants to our ministry. We want you, as a parent, to have the utmost confidence in the childcare at South Bay, so you can be involved in the service without distraction or concern.

Check in

The nursery opens 15 minutes before each service. When checking in your child, please be certain we have current information on file for the child. This is our guide in determining specific needs and/or requests. Please inform the nursery workers of any special needs, allergies, or special requests you have for that day. You will be given a security sticker to help us identify you with your child and their belongings.
