Infants and Toddlers
The State College Presbyterian Church welcomes families with Infants and Toddlers. When there are worship services open to all, we normally have childcare.
Our Childcare main room, 101, is open from 8:30 - 11:30 am.
Since our Stay and Play program has been running this past year, we have learned how well they cared for children, with masks, and had no cases of Covid.
We will be following the same safety practices. Only children who are feeling well should be coming to church! Most of you are aware of the policies of most childcare places and schools and we are following the same. Policies are posted in our hallways. If your child has a fever of 100.4, is vomiting or has diarrhea they should stay home. If your child has two typical cold symptoms (coughing AND a runny nose), then staying at home is best as well!
Our room has an air purifier, everyone including caregivers will be masked, and we will be leaving the main door open and using a gate for better airflow. All caregivers have been fully vaccinated.
We also offer childcare for those who volunteer for our midweek LOGOS program and for those participating in POLO (Parents of Little Ones). You can inquire about childcare at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Director of Education and Program, Deannine Shipman, hires caregivers to staff our childcare rooms on Sundays and for special programs. All volunteers and paid workers must have clearances. Volunteer and Paid applications are in our church office.
