In addition to our Sunday morning nursery and pre-K care, Unity of Naples may offer child care for certain special events, depending on requests. Please contact Youth and Family Ministries Director Elizabeth Smith for special situations. A reservation form is REQUIRED! In order to provide your children our best, we have a limit on the number of children accepted per event. Each event has a reservation form and payment button for your convenience.
Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedures
Childcare rooms open 20 to 30 minutes prior to an event.
Children must be brought to the room by a parent, adult or legal guardian and signed in. Cell phone numbers must always be left with childcare staff. Parents are requested to leave their cell phones ON in the silent/vibrate setting.
Children will only be released to an authorized adult, and requires a driver's license or picture ID. Children must be picked up immediately from the Youth Ed area following the scheduled event.
Please feed your child and visit the restroom before coming to Youth Ed, although snacks, water and juice may be available for longer sessions.Time and circumstances do not allow for spoon-feeding by caregivers. Please inform us of any allergies your child may have.
Illnesses and Allergies
If your child exhibits any signs of illness within 24 hours before class, please do not bring him or her that day. Signs of illness include a cough, cold, upset stomach, diarrhea, rash, fever, sore throat, ear ache, or vomiting. If your child often has a runny nose due to allergies or non-infectious sinus drainage, please inform us. Otherwise, your child will be diagnosed as ill and will not be allowed to stay. For the safety of all and the comfort of your child, caregivers reserve the right to turn away a child appearing ill.
If your child has allergies, please inform our caregivers at time of drop-off. Also include any allergies (especially food) on the reservation form.
Labeling Personal Items
Please label all items belonging to your child (such as diaper bags and bottles). Personal toys, gum, candy or coins should be left at home!
For the safety of the children all caregivers have completed an application process, which includes interviews, federal background check, and internal training.
