Nursery Care

Nursery Care - Caring for Your Children

Children are an important part of life at Normandale. For our smallest ones, newborn to five years old, nursery care is provided free of charge. 

Nursery Hours
Sundays  |  8:45-11:45 am, September – May
Wednesdays  |  5:30–8:00 pm, during program year
Special events as noted

The nursery is located on the lower level, in the north wing.  

Your child’s safety is our first concern. Nursery caregivers are paid and scheduled staff of Normandale Lutheran Church who have training in First Aid, CPR, and child safety and security. 

Upon arrival, sign-in and sign-out your child with the nursery attendant. Please bring a labeled diaper, bottle, pacifier, or other comfort item with your child.

In order to keep our children healthy, please keep your child home if they have experienced the following symptoms within the past 24 hours: fever, chicken pox, pink eye (conjunctivitis), discharge from eyes, ears or nose, vomiting or diarrhea, any rash (except diaper), persistent coughing or bringing up phlegm, diagnosed with/or being treated for a communicable disease.
