Child Care

Nursery, Toddlers and Preschoolers Care 

We welcome your children to the General Assembly.  We are praying for each child that they will feel loved and have an awesome time during the Assembly.

Care will be available during the following Program sessions:

  • Saturday, July 20 from 1:15 to 4:45 pm
  • Sunday, July 21 from 1:15 to 4:45 pm
  • Monday – Tuesday 8:15 – 11:45 am, 1:15 to 4:45 pm

Because of the rules and regulations involved with food preparation, we are asking that parents provide an am and pm snack for their children each day and that they include them in their meal plans for lunch and dinner each day.

Nursery Care at the Assembly is available for infants 6 weeks of age through 12 months of age in a safe, caring environment. Parents should provide diapers, wipes, change of clothes, baby food, formula, etc. as needed (all items labeled with child’s name).

A Toddler’s Program will be available for children age 12 to 36 months. Toddlers and two year olds will be engaged in age-appropriate activities that includes free play, arts and crafts, music, and story time. A daily schedule will be provided for each group that includes snack time and rest time. We ask that parents provide a bag that includes the following items each day: diapers/pull-ups, wipes, a change of clothing, a blanket and a snack for each session that the child attends. Please label each item with the child’s name. Parents will be asked to provide breakfast prior to bringing the child in the morning.  Parents will also be asked to pick their child up during lunch and dinner breaks.

The Preschool Program is designed for children ages 3 through 5 years.

Our theme will be All of God’s Creation.  We will have fun, structured activities that will allow kids to explore God’s creation.  Activities will include reading time, games, crafts, learning activities and exploration. This age group will be going to the Science Center of Iowa Monday afternoon (1:30 – 4:30pm) and to Blank Park Zoo on Tuesdayafternoon (1:30-4:30 pm). Parents must identify which field trips their children will be going at the time of registration.

Children ages 3-5 years will need to bring a bag each day that contains a change of clothes, and extra underwear and a small blanket to be used during rest time. Please label each item with your child’s name. We are also asking that you send a snack for each session that your child attends. We ask that each child be provided breakfast prior to being dropped off in the morning.  We are also asking that parents pick up their children during lunch and dinner breaks.

Please note:

In order to provide all enrolled children with a safe, healthy and fun experience, we will not accept children into our program who are sick. Therefore, please do not bring your child/children to a session if he/she has had a fever, vomited, had diarrhea or had an infectious runny nose within the previous 24 hours of a session. If a child develops any of these symptoms during a session, we will contact parents to pick them up and they will not be allowed to rejoin the group until they have been symptom free for 24 hours.

We are excited about the General Assembly and want both you and your children to have a positive experience while you are visiting Des Moines.
