Event Childcare

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 is REQUIRED!  In order to provide your children our best, we may limit on the number of children accepted per event.

Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedures

Drop-Off

Childcare rooms open 15 to 20 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.

Pick-Up

Children are only released to an authorized adult, and may require a driver's license or picture ID. Children must be picked up immediately from the Youth Ed area following the scheduled event.

Food

Please feed your child and visit the restroom before coming to Youth Ed, although snacks, water and juice may be available for longer sessions but here is no guarantee we will have them!  Time and circumstances do not allow for spoon-feeding by caregivers. Please inform us of any allergies your child may have.  Please DO NOT bring any snacks or treats to share with the other kids.

Illness and Allergies

Illness

If your child shows 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 may be considered ill and 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 sick.

Allergies

If your child has allergies, please inform our caregivers at time of drop-off. Also include any allergies (especially food) if there is a reservation form for that event.

Personal Items

Please label all items belonging to your child (such as diaper bags and bottles). Personal toys, gum, candy, cell phones or money should be left at home!
