Here at the River, our nursery room is for infants from birth to 2 1/2 years. Our first priority is to love and care for the infants and toddlers, making sure all of their needs are met. Our second priority is to speak simple words and phrases that relate to truths from God's word such as "God loves you!" "God made you!" "Jesus cares about you!" "The Bible is God's true word." Singing is also an important aspect of our program. We believe singing to infants is very important. It is comforting and soothing. We also pray out loud over the children. Our goal is for the infants and toddlers to hear simple truths about God and become familiar with those words and to feel loved by the caregivers.
