    Room FeaturesWith a few modifications this room design fits ages 0-15 months. There will be two nurseries for this age range.Bible Learning:1 This modular floor plan allows teachers to give personal attention to small groups of babies within the larger group.2 Teachers can use the vinyl corral, baby swings, and teaching table to engage a few babies at a time in Bible-related play.3 Wall-mounted brackets throughout the room display sets of safe toys/ instructions for relating playful activities to Biblical concepts.4 Baby-proofed, Velcro-backed teaching pictures can adhere to the bottom 36 inches of wall covering. Baby-proofed pictures of Jesus are displayed on the walls, at every diaper-changing station, and on crib rails.5 The rest area includes a CD system for playing Christian lullabies to mask sounds of play.Efficiency:6 Cubbies are located near the entrance, rest area, and diaper-changing stations. Double deep and wide drawers allow easier storage of nursery supplies.7 Dimmers or dual light switches allow teachers to adjust levels of lighting.8 Commercial cribs are tailored with wood and Plexiglas partitions that allow cribs to be grouped in less space.9 One-way glass allows teachers to see babies sleeping in the rest area. Baby monitors add auditory monitoring.Security:10 One-way windows allow coordinators, other teachers, and parents to see all of the room without upsetting babies.11 All activities are visible at all times.12 Closed-circuit, security cameras could also be added.13 Glass or Dutch doors latch on the inside to control access to the room (pending fire codes).Health & Safety:14 All outlets, switches, cleaning supplies are positioned above babies reach.15 Kitchen-style sinks with tall faucets in the room allow teachers to clean and sanitize hands, toys, and surfaces.16 Cutouts in the counter-tops with containers below allow teachers to dispose of diapers and store dirty toys out of babies reach.17 An intercom system allows teachers to communicate with nursery leaders as needed.18 Carpet is triple padded to cushion falls.
