You can be rest assured that your child will receive quality care while in our Nursery and Toddler ministry at New Hope Fellowship. Our Nursery & Toddler Church program is for children ages Newborn to 4.

 

The nursery is equipped with engaging age appropriate toys, cribs, rockers, exersaucers and soft music playing. A diaper changing station is located in the nursery. Every week our special toddlers have fun working on crafts and listening to Bible stories. The toddler room is outfitted with a variety of age appropriate toys: blocks, books, cars and trucks, wooden puzzles, play houses, coloring pages and lots more for them to enjoy.

 

Any person working with children and youth, whether volunteer or paid staff, are approved workers, meaning an application process and background check is required for the safety and protection of our kids.
