Hi! My name is Lisa Kreft, and I am the Nursery Coordinator for Discover Community Church. My husband Jeremy and I have been married for 10 years, and we have 2 little girls, Vivian, and Violet. In my down time, I love to organize and decorate my home, and I do enjoy a good comedy movie. When I was younger, I realized that one of my giftings is working with children! I tried to do office work, but I was always drawn back to children. In my 22 years of child care history, I have worked as an educational assistant, a preschool teacher, a tutor, and a nanny. What’s fun about working with children here, is that I get to teach the word of Jesus! I believe that children are ground-breakers for the kingdom of Christ, and that they have an important role in this world! I’m so grateful to be able to help guide and equip them as they grow into that role. It is my goal to accept every child that finds their way into our Nursery and see each one as the precious child of God that they are.
Information On The Nursery
What to expect: We offer care in our nursery room for infants to 2-years, and in our preschool room for ages 2-4. Upon arrival, every child and parent will be assigned a number through our check-in system. The child receives a name tag, and the parent receives a sticker with the same number. If you are needed back at the nursery during service for any reason, your number will be displayed above the stage.To pick up your child, you must present the sticker to the Nursery worker. Safety is our top priority.
Diapering/Potty Training: We Supply diapers and wipes for our babies and toddlers. If your child is potty training, be sure to let us know so we can be prepared to give them reminders. A nursery worker will accompany your child to the restroom, and give help when needed. It’s also ideal for you to bring a change of clothes just in case of an accident.
