Skills/traits needed: The desire to be flexible, keep children safe, and have fun!
Training required: Pass background check; complete Childcare Basics Class, offered twice a year (volunteering may begin before completing this training).
Duties and expectations: Nursery volunteers work as a team to ensure the safety of and care for the youngest members of our church family. Our volunteers greet each child and his/her parents with warmth and enthusiasm upon arrival in the nursery; make sure all personal items are labeled; assist with diaper changes and bathroom breaks, as needed; distribute snacks when appropriate; and (of course!) play with and provide comfort for the children in their care.
Time commitment: Nursery volunteers serve three or four Sundays over the course of a four-month term, 3:30-5:30pm (no outside prep).
