CVVC Nursery Mission Statement
We love the sweet babies, toddlers and their families! We fully believe that these kiddos are the right now generation; that they too can and do experience the presence of God. Our goal is to provide a fun and interactive program tailored just for nursery aged kids to help them know Jesus and grow spiritually through the love, prayer and care of our volunteers.

What to expect while in the Nursery
We start our check in time 15 minutes before our services start. We encourage you to come get your family checked in and then enjoy the start of our services with worship for families to engage in together.
Nursery services end at the same time that adult services end so we ask that you pick up your children in a timely manner, no more than 10 minutes after service ends to honor the volunteers time with their families.
If your child needs you
Upon check in each child receives a printed tag with a series of letters and numbers on them. When a child needs you that number/letter will show up on the screen in the main auditorium.
What to bring for Birth - 3yr olds
We ask that you bring a diaper bag with the following items, applicable to your child.
2-3 disposable diapers or pullups as needed.
Extra set of clothes for restroom accidents
Pacifier or any other items that your child may need for comfort.
Bottles with formula (prepped bottles are ok-we have a refrigerator).
What about snacks and allergies?
We provide snacks for kids 1 -3 years old unless otherwise directed by parents. These snacks consist of cracker and cookie type snacks. We ensure that there are no peanut products in our snacks. However we do sometimes have a snack that was in a factory that also has peanut products made there. Parents are always welcome to provide their child their own snack and we also have the original packages for parents to review. Please ensure that your child has their allergy listed on their name tag (our check in team is happy to assist you with this) and please tell their classroom teacher.
Moving up to the 3yr old room, what does that look like?
We want our 3 year old's to have a smooth transition as they grow from Nursery to Children’s Ministry. We also want your child to be ready and confident in that transition. To move up, we ask that our 3 year old's are confident in using the bathroom independently as well as be ready to start joining in family worship periodically. Please come talk to us when you feel your child is ready to move up.
We see a woman named Hannah in 1 Samuel 1:27-28, who prayed for many years for God to give her a child. God heard her prayers and she gave birth to a son, Samuel. After Samuel’s birth, Hannah prayed to God “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
We believe that child dedications are a special time for parents, just like Hannah, to commit that they are raising and leading their family God’s way. We love celebrating this moment as a church family so that we can love and support you as you begin this journey!
We invite families with children ages 0 - 4 years to participate in our dedications.

We need you!
At Canyon View we want to partner with parents and disciplers to bring a rich understanding of Jesus and his Gospel to our kids. To that end we are always looking for passionate, invested volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering in either the Nursery or Children's Ministry, fill out the Volunteer Application and mandatory background check to start the process. Because we feel very strongly about the safety and well-being of the children under our care, the form is a bit extensive.
If you have questions before filling out the form, please contact Rayna Tonini. We can’t wait to have you join our team as we invest in these future world changers!
