Childcare on Sundays

Welcome to the Bonhomme Childcare Program. Our goal is to provide safe, loving childcare provided by caring people in a Christian environment. We hope to enable parents to participate in Growth Hour (Sunday School) and worship services, as well as other special events, and know their children are well cared for. We provide childcare for children from six months old through pre-kindergarten for Sunday services. Other events extend that age range through fifth grade.

When is Childcare Provided?

Childcare is provided on Sundays for the 8:30 am Traditional Worship Service, during Growth Hour (Sunday School) at 9:45 am and during the 11 am Traditional and Contemporary Worship Services. Other events offer childcare and this will be advertised during the promotion of the event. Should you have any questions, please contact the church office at 636.532.3486 or our Childcare Coordinator, Sue Kern. >Email

How Do I Check In My Child?

Please sign in as you bring your child to childcare. The registration book (located in the assigned room) will have you provide your cell phone number and location should we need to contact you. We use a four-part sticker. The large sticker should contain your child's name, your name, location, special instructions and boxes to check if you are a visitor or if you child has any allergies. We have a peanut-free facility. The other three stickers are to mark belongs and for parents to claim their children.

What Happens When I Drop Off or Pick Up My Child?

Caregivers will make sure children have fun things to do. We have crayons and markers, puzzles, cars and trucks and lots of books. For babies or toddlers, please do not feel discouraged if your child cries the first time they come to Bonhomme Childcare. Caregivers will be attentive and most children stop crying shortly after parents leave. We would contact you if this was not the case. Most children become familiar with the childcare workers and can't wait to come in and play. At the end of the service or your event, please pick up your child in a timely manner and don't forget to bring your sticker!

Healthy Environment

Please do not bring children to childcare if they have a fever or have had a fever or have thrown up in the last 24 hours. Runny noses with yellow or green discharge, excessive coughing, unexplained rash would all be of concern. We want to maintain a healthy environment for all

What to Bring

In your diaper bag be sure to include at least three diapers, a change of clothing, bottle or cup, and a "lovey" if needed. Peanut-free snacks are provided by the childcare team or you may bring your own peanut-free snacks. Please label all bags and possessions. Young children should find many things to do and will not need to bring toys. If they do need diapers, please label them.
