Child Care at Transfiguration
We are blessed to offer childcare during several parish events and gatherings at Transfiguration including Faith Formation. It is so important to be fed spiritually, and this is especially true for all those hoping to pass on the beauty and truth of our faith to their children. To ensure the safety and well-being of both the children in our care and our wonderful nursery staff, we are conscientious in following state law, archdiocesan policy and parish rules for childcare.
We have found that it helps us all to know what those standards are so that we can work together to see that your children are safely cared for so that your spiritual needs can be met.
Childcare Available for Faith Formation Classes beginning August 15.
Childcare is offered free of charge during Faith Formation scheduled classes. (Our Great Journey, Adult Faith Formation) Nursery will be open for all Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday Faith Formation Times.
Space will be available at a first come first served basis until capacity is reached.
Did You Know?
- Our childcare is offered free of charge for parish events scheduled outside of our weekend Mass times.
- Our childcare team can care for children as young as 8 months through 4 years of age. Our room is primarily geared to preschool age and younger.
- Any individual child may be watched in our childcare up to 4 hours in any given day and up to 8 hours in any given week.
- We must have two safe environment certified adults in the room at any time while children are in our care. In addition, we must meet certain ratios for appropriate coverage based on children’s ages; we must have one nursery worker per every 6 children, unless the children aren’t yet walking, in which case we then need one worker per every 4 children. This is part of why it is important to list the ages of your children whenever you sign up for childcare.
- The maximum capacity of our nursery is 24 children.
- In order to offer childcare for any given event/class, we must have at least 3 children or two families signed up 72 hours in advance of the event/class taking place. (Signup page link is coming soon!)
- Masking is encouraged but not required. Masks are optional for vaccinated adults. Children do not have to wear a mask. (Parents may request that their child remain masked.)
