Childcare

The VPC Childcare program includes the following components:

Weekday Childcare

Childcare at VPC is available for children ages one month through 11 years for some church events and activities.  Children are welcomed into the childcare ministry on a reservation basis.  Reservations are to be made as soon as possible, but at least 48 hours in advance, by contacting Valerie Clark, Early Childhood Ministry Manager, at 703-938-9050 x159, or childcare@viennapres.org.

If you are planning a church event and would like to have childcare for that event, please contact Valerie Clark (see above) at least two weeks in advance to determine if childcare can be provided for your event.

Weekday childcare offers quality care and attention to children’s physical and emotional needs.  Our professional and experienced Childcare Providers welcome, play and care for each child.

We offer the children a choice of Cheerios, graham crackers, pretzels or gluten-free rice cakes for snack.  If your child has a special diet, you are welcome to bring a preferred snack for them.  We strive to be a nut-free area, so please do not bring products containing nuts into the Childcare wing.

For more information on our childcare policies and procedures, please contact Valerie Clark (see above).

Sunday Morning Nursery


 

VPC’s nursery is available for children ages 1 month through 2 years old at both the 9:30 and 11:00 am Sunday morning worship services; the nursery is not open at the 8:00 am service (except on Easter Sunday).  If your child is older than 2 years, please see Sunday Morning Classes for other options.  Sunday morning nursery is staffed by a committed corps of volunteers who nurture and teach our smallest members.

Three classrooms are designed to meet the developmental needs of the children in their age group:

  • Lambs are newborns to early walkers
  • Bunnies are children walking well up to age 2
  • Lion Cubs are two year olds

Each room is well-equipped with appropriate, good-quality toys.  We try to ensure that each room is kept to a high standard of cleanliness.

We have a comprehensive check-in process that enables parents to leave, confident that their child is safe.  Parents are asked to provide a cell phone number and keep their cell phone close by during the service, on vibrate, so we can contact them if needed.

Volunteering in the Nursery on Sunday Morning

The nursery is often the first place new families visit when they arrive at VPC, and our care of their children may play a large role in whether they return on future occasions.  What a wonderful opportunity we have to serve children and their families!  Playing with, reading to, and singing with our children are encouraged.

If you would like to serve in the nursery during one service or more per month, please contact Valerie Clark (see above).
