I have recently taken on the position of nursery coordinator in a church which has let this area of ministry "run itself" for a number of years. We needed to esablish a new set of nursery policies and procedures.This book provides useful advice for organizing (or re-organizing) your church nursery, including tips on recruiting nursery caregivers, health and safety considerations, room equipment and supplies, and programs for the kids.It includes many reproducible forms and notices which could be used directly from the book, or adapted for your church's needs.Additional items are available for purchase, including a poster set, CDs, cassettes, picture cards, and activities.This book has ideas and suggestions for a nursery that cares for babies 0-24 months. Some options for preschoolers is provided, but it is not nearly as extensive for that age group.
As the newly appointed director of the nursery department at my church, I was interested in updating our nursery policies and procedures as well as improving how parents perceive our facilities and program. This book was very helpful to me in developing new procedures that would be up-to-date (i.e. taking into account HIV possibilities when diaper changing, etc.)One problem with the book is that it leads you to believe that it contains 24 months worth of nursery curriculum. However, upon closer inspection you discover that the curriculum requires you to have other Gospel Light curriculum materials that must be purchased separately such as a music CD, visual aids, and a flip chart book.Overall, the book is still a good purchase for any nursery director looking to update their church nursery.
Great for church nursery directors--full of helpful hints, clip art and newsletter pages to copy.
this book was extremely helpful in giving me ideas when i took over our church nursery. just to be clear, it is not a book for ideas on actual classroom material, although there is a section on creating a parent newsletter to incorporate your parents into what the kids are learning. so many forms & brochures you are allowed to copy, and ideas for what should be in your nursery concerning toys, workers, supplies, etc. the section on encouraging your nursery workers waas extremely helpful as well. i highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for some fresh ideas in addition to how to pull them off. even if you don't wind up using any of the ideas, reading the book the entire way through will give you, if nothing else, a new perspective and something to think about.
