The Nursery is staffed by two paid employees with occasional volunteers as needed.
In a child friendly setting, the nursery is staffed to care for children under 4 years of age during the 10:30 AM Sunday service.
Holy Cross requires that parents, guardians, or those designated by them to complete a form of contact and with specific information regarding that child. Completion of this form identifies to whom the children are to be released. Holy Cross church personnel must always respond to children and youth with respect, consideration and equal treatment, regardless of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, culture or socioeconomic status. Nursery Personnel will portray a positive role model for children and youth by maintaining an attitude of respect, patience, and maturity.
As a policy of Western North Carolina’s Episcopal Diocese, all nursery staff and unpaid youth volunteers or directors are required to have three hours of Safeguarding God's Children training before they start working with children or youth.
