Toddlers and Nursery

At Islington, we strive to create a space for everyone. Our Nursery and Toddler Room is available for our youngest church goers. Located in the basement (and easily found if you ask an usher or greeter), these rooms are spaces for children up to age 4. Each week there are volunteers and a paid staff who provide supervision in the nursery and toddler room. Our toddler room is filled with fun toys and activities as well as a paging system should your child need you during the service. We encourage parents to come and visit the program to observe, ask questions and share your ideas. If you are feeling secure, your child will too.

The Nursery space is a separate quiet room for resting, changing and nursing. Change stations can also be found in the upper unisex washroom and the lower women’s washroom near the Toddler Room.

The Nursery and Toddler Room (for babies and children up to the age of 4) open 15 minutes prior to each service.  Please  arrive in plenty of time to help settle your child. Plan to stay as long as your child needs you. It is important that your child feels happy during their early church experiences. We are equipped with a paging system, which allows our caregivers to reach parents during the service, if necessary. Please pick up a pager when dropping off your little ones.

Should you be more comfortable keeping your children with you in the Sanctuary during service, the north transept is available as a family space where children and parents can stay in the service together – there are craft supplies, storybooks, a rocking chair and comfortable seating available. At Islington United all ages are welcome in worship and every voice is valued.
