Safety and Security

Because God has entrusted us with the responsibility of caring for His children, security is a priority at Peachtree Church. Our facility is monitored by video surveillance and able to be completely secured, if necessary. 

All children using The Nest must be signed in at one of our secure, computerized check-in stations in The Nest lobby. You will receive a printed name tag to be placed on the back of your child’s garment, as well as your parent security tag. Both tags include a unique alpha-numeric code that serves as your identification when picking up your child. The parent tag is designed to be torn in half so that it can be shared with a spouse or other caregiver. 

To help ensure the security of our children and the cleanliness of floors, parents are asked to remain in the hallway rather than entering the classrooms when dropping-off and picking-up their children. Teachers will receive and dismiss children at the classroom door.  

Sick Policy

While we welcome the opportunity to love on your child, we respectfully request that you do not bring your child to The Nest when he/she:

  • has an above normal temperature (over 100.4)
  • has vomited in the past 12 hours or feels nauseous
  • has had diarrhea in the past 12 hours
  • has nasal drainage that is not clear
  • is excessively coughing/hacking or sneezing
  • has shortness of breath and/or difficulty breathing
  • has muscle pains or chills
  • has a sore throat
  • has lice
  • shows irritability and pulling at ears
  • has drainage in the eyes, conjunctivitis, or pink eye
  • has an infection and has not been on an antibiotic for 24 hours
  • has an unidentified rash or skin infection
  • shows any symptom of childhood disease such as mumps, measles, chicken pox, etc.
  • needs to be administered prescription or over-the-counter medication while in our care
  • is lethargic and not feeling well, or seems to be coming down with something

If your child exhibits any of these symptoms or behaviors at drop-off, you will be politely asked to return another day when the symptoms have cleared for 24 hours. You may also be contacted to pick up your child if the Weekday Nursery Manager and Director of Early Development believe your child is sick. 


24 Hour Rule: If a child has been on antibiotics for 24 hours, without fever for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medicine), and shows no other symptoms for 24 hours, it is considered safe for them to be in a nursery setting. 


The Nest reserves the right to require a doctor’s note upon re-admittance, if necessary. In addition to a doctor’s note, your child must also comply with the 24 hour rule of symptoms listed above, before returning to The Nest. 


As always, if your child is diagnosed with a contagious illness and has possibly exposed other children in The Nest, please email Danielle Jones,Director of Early Development. The sooner we are aware, the quicker other parents are able to be notified and our staff is able take precautionary measures to effectively detail the space.
