Little Sprouts (3 Months-Pre K)

church toddler care


We seek to provide a safe and loving space for the youngest members of our church family by providing special care for 3 months through pre-kindergarten children.


On Sunday mornings, the nursery is open from 7:45am-12:30pm for loving care during our 8am, 9:30am and 11am worship services.

Nursery programming is based on special lessons just right for our infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Each Sunday we will guide the children in positive experiences related to 3 Simple Truths: “God made me,” “God loves me,” and “Jesus wants to be my friend forever,” using age appropriate activities, stories, crafts, and snacks.


A Wiggle Room adjoining the sanctuary is provided for the comfort of families with infants during worship.


Nursery care is available during Women’s Bible Study Groups, Circles of Friendship, MOPS, MomsNext, and Moms@Night meetings.  Click here for more info about these ministries for moms.


Nursery through preschool childcare is available during Women’s Bible Study Groups and Wednesday evening programming.


During the fall through the spring, Thursday mornings are Parents’ Day Out. This is a free opportunity for New Hope Families to have their young children in a fun and loving environment from 9am-1pm. They’ll learn more about their friend Jesus and how much He loves them. Please email Pam at to sign up.

If you are interested in joining a music ministry, rehearsals are Thursday evenings and we do provide childcare. Please email Pam at


  • To assist your child in adjusting to his/her surroundings, bring him/her to church on a regular basis.
  • Be sure to label ALL of your child’s belongings clearly and always bring a change of clothing in case of spills or accidents.
  • Please use the sign-in/sign-out sheets, pagers, and security sticker system in place to protect your children.

Please refer to the Nursery Guidelines which explain more about our policies. All children must have a registration form on file with us: you can download/print a copy to fill out and bring on your first visit! You may now also complete your nursery registration online.
