Nurseries are open on Sundays from 8:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Whether you are a new parent, a new member or returning to our nurseries, we are excited about having you and your little one! Central views its nursery system as a primary and necessary first step in your child's life. We see this as an opportunity to plant a seed of spiritual learning in a safe, loving and caring environment. Your child will become familiar with the values of home as well as his church. By means of prayer, song, Bible stories and crafts, our teachers will aid in establishing this very first pillar of spiritual growth.
All paid Nursery Staff have undergone a criminal background check and have been certified in Child and Infant CPR as well as First Aid.
