Age & Capacity
We welcome the children of our community into a safe, positive, inviting, and enriching environment while encouraging each child to encounter Jesus, the Good Shepherd, in our Montessori inspired nursery.
The nursery is available for children ages 12 months through four years old. You MUST fill out a registration form for each child attending the nursery. Please stop by the nursery, parish office, or print the forms linked below.
Parents and guardians may leave a child in the nursery ONLY to attend Mass or an event at Holy Spirit Parish. You must remain on campus at one of the listed events while your child is in the nursery:
- Sunday morning 7:45am-12:15pm (for 8am Mass, 9:15am-10:45am Children and Adult Faith Formation & RCIA, and 11am Mass)
- The First Friday of the month 5:15pm-7:45pm (for First Friday Family Adoration; Begins in September)
- Other occasional events as advertised in the bulletin or requested by organizations.
The nursery is staffed with both paid employees and volunteers.
- All employees are CPR and First Aid certified, have successfully completed a required background check, and have completed Child Protection training through the Archdiocese of Mobile.
Adults are welcome to volunteer in the Nursery. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to do so as they are able. All adult volunteers must have a background check and be Child Protection trained in the Archdiocese of Mobile.
- Teens over the age of 12 are also permitted to volunteer in the nursery as a Teen Aide after undergoing training.
