Child care during the 11h and 13h30 worship services

Infants and toddlers up to age 3: The Nursery (infants-23 months) and Toddler Room (2-3 year olds) are located on the courtyard level (basement level) of the church house. Parents: please introduce your child to the nursery or toddler room before worship.

To keep the ACP nursery and toddler rooms safe and hygienic places to play and rest, children who are sick will not be admitted to the nursery and toddler rooms. This is to protect all our children from communicable illnesses. We also assume that a child who is unwell will prefer to be at home with their parent(s) or caregiver(s) rather than at Sunday nursery.
