Our Nursery

We welcome you and your children to our church! It is the goal of Collierville United Methodist Church to provide a safe, comfortable and nurturing environment for your child. We want you to feel secure about your child’s well-being while you attend services and activities with at CUMC. Please take the time to read the following guidelines. This short booklet will answer most of your questions and introduce you to the guidelines we have set in place to safeguard all of the children in our care. Your understanding and cooperation is deeply appreciated.

Nursery Team

Our nursery team consists of at least two adult Nursery Caregivers per classroom. All Nursery Caregivers are trained by our Nursery Director and compliant with our Safe Sanctuary policy.

Infant Nursery  | up to 18 months

This nursery is a peaceful space where infants learn to transition away from their parents in a loving, Christian environment. This includes infants who are walking before 18 months.

Toddler Nursery  |  18-36 months

This nursery is for 18-36 month olds. The toys and activities in this room are tailored for children this age, including centers such as play kitchen, reading corner, building blocks, dress up, toy animals for creative play, etc.

Preschool Nursery  |  3-5 years (these children must be Potty Trained)

Children will be taught a Bible Story with a craft to go along with what they are learning.

Your First Visit

Our Children’s Ministry Center is located in the center of the Poplar Location. When you arrive on campus we will greet you with a smile. We will meet your family, check your child into our database system, and one of our volunteers will lead you and your child to their age-appropriate room.
