Zoo - Nursery - Birth - 18 Months

Nursery is offered during the Sunday morning worship service and Sunday school.

Although children of any age are always welcome to attend our services with their parents, our nursery provides a respite for younger children and allows the parents to give their undivided attention to the service. Our nursery is staffed by church members who volunteer on a monthly rotation with a few who serve weekly. Our nursery helps the babies and toddlers feel that church is a happy place where they are loved and secure.

Health Information

In order to ensure a healthy and safe environment for all children at Cascades Church, we ask that a child not attend when they are not feeling well and that they are free of fever and all symptoms for 24 hours before coming to church. Cascades Church is not allowed to give any medicine to any child.
