PARENT RESPONSIBILITIES

  • All parents need to remain on the grounds of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton while their child is in the Nursery.
  • Parents should respond in a timely manner to any alert they receive via Nursery provided pager.
  • Any diapering or changing is the responsibility of the parent.  Staff will page the parent if a child requires his or her diaper changed.
  • We are unable to provide assistance in the bathroom. Please be sure that your child is wearing a clean pull-up or diaper when they are dropped off in the Nursery.  It will be the parents’ responsibility to assist any child who cannot independently use the bathroom.  This includes children in the process of being potty trained.
  • Other than to assist with the above, parents are unable to stay with their child in the Nursery. This is in accordance with the Safe Environment Requirements of the Parish.

PERSONAL PROPERTY

  • The Nursery has plenty of toys and games for children.  If your child brings his or her own toys, we are not responsible if the item is misplaced or damaged.
  • Any personal items left in the Nursery will be taken to the Lost and Found area of the Church.

FOOD AND BEVERAGES

To avoid issues regarding food allergies, we ask that there be no food brought into the Nursery.  The only exception to this is baby bottles.  These bottles will be labeled when dropping off your child.

EVACUATION POLICY

  • In the event of an emergency, if you are located on the church side of the campus, please immediately come to the Nursery to pick up your child.  Any child not picked up will be taken to the Rectory.
  • If you are located on the school side of the campus and an evacuation is needed, please go to the Rectory to be reunited with your child. 
  • The Rectory is located at 10517 Unita Drive.
  • Turn into the driveway at the flagpole with the Vatican Flag.
