Kid City Nursery

Our purpose, in Nursery and Children's Ministries, is to partner with your family and assist in the faith development of your child. Our goal is to provide a worshipful and educational environment as we love and care for the children and families of Newark Naz. Your child will learn about the love of Jesus through songs, story time, snack time, and play time during his or her time with us.

Snack Policy
Infant Nursery:
The nursery provides Cheerios in the infant class for snack each week.If you bring a bottle or sippy cup for your child, the drinks (sippy cups or bottles) need to be labeled with the child's name.

Toddler Nursery:

These three snacks are offered to the Toddler Nursery:

  • Goldfish Baked Snack Crackers (Pepperidge Farm)
  • Honey Maid Grahams Honey Sticks/Bees
  • Malt-O-Meal Scooters/Cheerios (Toasted Whole Grain Oat Cereal)
If your child is unable to have the snack provided due to allergies, please let your child's teacher know. Water is offered to the Toddlers during snack time.If you bring a sippy cup for your child, make sure the cup is labeled with your child's name.


There is a form to complete in the check-in room so that we can better know how to care for your child's allergies.Your child will be given a bracelet to wear that informs your child's teacher of his or her allergy.

Wellness Policy

If your infant or toddler is exhibiting any of the following symptoms or has any of the following diseases, please DO NOT bring him or her to the nursery:

  • Fever of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater
  • Runny nose if associated with illness
  • Vomiting in the last 24 hours
  • Diarrhea in the last 24 hours
  • Impetigo
  • Chicken Pox
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
If your child is being treated with antibiotics, he or she must be on the drug for at least 24 hours before coming into the nursery.

Cry Policy

We understand that it is difficult for some children to make the transition to the classroom. Therefore, we allow the child a 5 minute cry time before we alert the parents. Your child's number will be shown if you are needed to comfort your child.

Graduation Policy

In order to graduate (or move from the toddler room to the preschool ministry), your child must be at least 3 years old and fully potty trained (no pull-ups). Due to the limitations of our facility, the children's area is a long way from the restrooms. This means that our children must be fully prepared before moving downstairs.The first Sunday of each month will be Move-up Sunday. This will help us accomplish two things:

1. It will allow our nursery volunteers to say goodbye to children with whom they've bonded.

2. It will give our preschool volunteers time to prepare for the arrival of new children.
