The Nursery Attendant embraces principles of early childhood development and welcomes Fourth Church member families and visitors alike into an inviting space: a Sunday morning extension of the home.

The Fourth Church Nursery fosters a sense of community where new parents connect with each other and where children grow as part of the church family.  The nursery provides a safe, secure, consistent, healthful, loving environment where parents feel confident to leave their children and each unique child begins to experience his or her own faith journey.
