Kid's Day Out

Kid's Day Out Child Care Worker Opening

Contact Julie Pritchard at 634.0337, ext. 215, or jpritchard@eastminster.org with questions.

 

We are delighted to welcome your child with the love of Christ to our Kid’s Day Out program, a great place for all the little “extras.” Extra time for busy moms to rest or run needed errands without active children. Extra fun and activities for kids to thrive in a learning environment that is both energetic and nurturing. We offer quality care and teaching, with a balance of active and quiet play, crafts, recreation, stories, songs and listening times appropriate for each age level. We allow plenty of time for snacks and lunch, with quiet time following lunch. In addition, we feature a dedicated music teacher who leads an interactive music rotation filled with puppets, instruments, book and rhythm in each classroom!

What to Bring

Please send all items necessary for your child, including diapers, bottles, pacifiers and extra clothing. All items, including diapers, must be marked with your child’s name!

 

Please send a nutritious, easily prepared (and easily eaten) lunch and drink for your child. Please keep in mind that a refrigerator and microwave are available only in the nursery.

 

Please carefully read the Food Policy.

 

Food Policy

We are encountering an increasing number of children (and adults) with peanut allergies and have discovered how dangerous these allergies can be. The Children’s Ministries department of Eastminster Presbyterian Church has therefore adopted a “NO PEANUT” policy for our children’s programs. We do not serve peanut butter or anything with any peanut or nut products in it to our children while at Eastminster.

 

In support of this policy, we are asking you to refrain from sending any foods with peanuts or nuts of any kind in them in your child’s lunch. This includes most chocolate candies like M&M’s. Please carefully read ingredient lists on packages to help us keep our little ones safe.

 

We also ask that the food you send in your child’s lunch be something they can easily handle themselves. Please cut food into small, bite-size pieces.

 

Pick-Up Time

Please pick up your child promptly at 1 p.m. (1:15 p.m. beginning this fall) To ensure the well being and security of your children, we strictly enforce this policy. You will be assessed a fee of $5 for the first 15 minutes you are late and $1 for every minute thereafter. The fee will be added to your monthly charge.
