Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Libertyville. Our goal is to give you and your child a positive experience every time you use the Infant and Toddler Care Rooms. The Infant and Toddler program is part of the Children’s Ministries.
The Infant Care Room takes children from newborn until they are confidently walking. The caregivers will assist your child when it is time to transition into the Toddler Room.
At times when the number of children is minimal they will be combined in the Toddler Room.
Most children tend to cry the most when they first arrive. It may be difficult, but a quick goodbye and confident transition is usually best.
Some infants have difficulty adjusting to the Infant Care Room, especially if they are new or are experiencing separation anxiety. We believe this is a normal developmental phase that almost all children experience at some point. If you are concerned that your child may have extreme difficulty, please consult the caregivers.
Please leave any instructions for diapers or feeding, etc., on the sign-in forms.
Please provide a bag that includes diaper changing items as well as items to calm your child: a special blanket or stuffed animal, bottle, snack, or pacifier.
Please label your bag and the items inside.
The Toddler Care Room takes children when they are confidently walking. The children have two rooms of toys, books and puzzles available to them. Sometimes graham crackers or other snacks are provided. If your child has any allergies please indicate on the sign-in sheet.

Both rooms are staffed every Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. for the 9:45 & 10 a.m. Worship Services and 11:00 a.m. Adult Education classes. The adult childcare providers are background checked and trained in child protection.
