Childcare

Welcome to the Nursery at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville!  We hope that our loving care of the children will allow parents and guardians to participate in the multitude of FUUN activities our church offers.

Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable and nurturing environment for all children and feel that we accomplish this goal in two ways.

  • We strive to provide the information needed to know about our nursery program: how it is run, the policies and guidelines that we have crafted to ensure a safe environment, and contact information to have any questions answered.
  • We provide children with an environment that is safe for them to explore the room – it is properly childproofed – and is always properly staffed to ensure that there is enough individual attention paid to every child.

The Nursery begins serving children at 6 weeks of age, however guardians are always welcomed to sit in one of our rockers with their infant under that age. We are currently open for both Sunday services as well as other times for church classes and activities and for most of our special events.

On Sunday childcare is available in the Nursery for infants and Pre-K during the 9 a.m. service and for children up to 10 years old starting at 10:30 a.m.

When you join us for the first time we will ask that you register your child with us so that we have the most up to date information to be able to provide them with quality care. We will also provide you with our parent handbook that will go through our Nursery policies.

For questions please contact Aubrey McMillan, Child Care Coordinator, at childcarecoordinator@firstuunashville.org.
