Caring for Your Infant or Toddler

All in the Spirit of God's Love

Our nursery ministry seeks to support families as they fulfill the mission of St. Mary’s.  When parents know their children are well cared for, they can fully participate in the life of the Parish.  In addition, the nursery often provides a child’s first contact with the family of God outside of the home.  St. Mary’s nursery allows our youngest members to feel God’s love through the ministry of a loving staff. 




The Infant Nursery is located in room 201.  This room is for our youngest babies, who will be cared for in this room until they are walking well.


The Toddler Nursery is located in room 202.  When a baby is walking well, she will be promoted from the Infant Nursery into this room, where she will stay until the September past her second birthday.

LITTLE LAMBS (2 Year-olds)

Little Lambs is located in room 204. This room is for children who are two before September 1 of the current school year.  Children will remain in this room until they begin Catechesis of the Good Shepherd the following September (at age 3.) Little Lambs is available on Sunday mornings during the 8:00 a.m. service and the 9:15 education hour.  Should the family of a child this age attend the 10:15 service, the child will be taken to the toddler nursery next door at 10:15.
