sunshineliz Posted January 13, 2019 Report Share Posted January 13, 2019 How big is too big for nursery? It's January and we have 17 kids on the roll and only one of those is inactive. If no one with nursery kids moves in or out or joins the church this year, we'll have 19 come April and that's it for the year. There is also an investigator that I didn't count. It feels too big to me. We have 3 leaders. But more importantly it feels too chaotic for the kids. Part of that is that we just started a new time (church is at noon) and it's naptime for most of them. Plus nursery is new for a few kids whose families just joined the church. Am I right that this is too big and we need to do something? Or should we just go as is and hope the chaos dies down? If we did anything, what could we do? Split the group into two nurseries?There's 11 that will turn 3 this year. Our room is about 2 small primary rooms together and we do have a divider but I think it'd be even harder in smaller rooms with about 10 kids each. I want the kids safe and happy, not overwhelmed and upset and I'm just trying to figure out what would be best for them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
