A well-staffed, modern nursery is available for infants and toddlers. The safety and well being of your children is our number one priority. We faithfully adhere to the guidelines of our church’s Child Protection Policy. No child is to be left behind if parents leave the church premises. Baylake’s nursery provides staff and volunteers for all worship services and most church-related activities. All children are welcome in worship services.

On Sunday morning, the nursery is available for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Children 3 years old and above are invited to Sunday school upstairs during the Sunday school hour, 10:10 – 10:55 am. Preschoolers meet in room 206. If your child has special needs, please speak with the Director of Nursery Ministries, Pam Thatcher (757-464-2423) or pthatcher@baylakeumc.org.
