Hope Waukee Nursery

At Hope Waukee, quality childcare is available for children ages 3 and under during all weekend services, as well as many other activities throughout the week! Because we seek to provide the best care possible for your children, we have different rooms available to fit each child’s needs. More information on these rooms is listed below. To find out if childcare is provided during a specific class or time, please check the class information upon registration.

What to Know

Checking In
When you arrive, please print off your child/children’s name tag/s at a computer kiosk. Once completed, please place your child/children’s name tag on their back and go to the nursery for drop-off. From there, staff and volunteers will get your child situated in the appropriate room or assist you in finding the correct room.

To provide a safe and healthy environment for all children and staff, you are asked to keep your child at home or with you for the following:

  • Fever, vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
  • Runny nose with any colored discharge
  • Sore throat
  • Contagious diseases, skin rashes or infections (i.e., hand, foot and mouth; impetigo; chickenpox, etc.
  • Any infection that has not been treated with antibiotics (i.e., strep throat or pink eye)
  • Lice

If your child develops symptoms while in the nursery, you will be contacted to come pick up your child.

Meals are not offered in the nursery. The nursery does provide Goldfish Crackers for snacks. You will be asked if your child can have these snacks when you check in. If they cannot, they will not receive our snacks, but you may leave a snack for them. If providing a snack please be aware that due to a number of children within our care with food allergies, we do not allow any food items with peanut or tree nut products within the nursery. Thank you for your understanding!

You are asked to leave a bag with any personal items your child may need during their time in the nursery. Please carefully label each item with your child’s first and last name.

To help keep this ministry going, donations are always welcome! Goldfish, diapers and all kinds of toys will be happily accepted.
