Complimentary Sunday Childcare
Childcare for ages 2-5 is provided during the 11:25 Service in Legacy Suite of Unity Oaks. Parents with children younger than age 2 are welcome to use the nursery (room 136) as needed.
Childcare for Events
For on-campus events and clases outside of our regular Sunday morning schedule, Unity Church of the Hills provides childcare by registration only for children ages 18 months to 10 years.
- Registration is required a minimum of 3 days prior to the event.
- Childcare requests can be added when you register for an event. Cost is indicated with registration.
- Childcare is provided for certain church events and will be promoted when it is available. Childcare “on demand” is not currently being offered.
- Volunteers in service to the church may register for complimentary childcare.
- Childcare request may be cancelled without penalty at least 24 hours prior to the start of the event. Cancellations within 24 hours will not be refunded.
Help! I did not register 3 days in advance, but I need childcare! What can I do?
If you find yourself in a bind, you can always call our Church office at 512-335-4449. They can tell you if childcare has already been arranged for your event. If so, you are welcome to register your child at that time.
My child is younger than 18 months. What can I do?
Requests for children under 18 months will be decided on a caseby-case basis. If we are adequately staffed and we feel able to provide quality care for your infant, we may be able to accommodate you. For these requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you know you have a need; the more advance time we get, the more likely it is that we can help you.
I’m volunteering at the church. Do I qualify for complimentary childcare?
We offer complimentary childcare while our volunteers are in service to the Church. Examples of this include the childcare provided for volunteer trainings and certain Church events. If you are receiving entry to an event in exchange for your time volunteering, we will require payment for childcare. Still fuzzy on if you qualify? Email us at email@example.com, and we can help you figure it out.
What if I stay for 2 ½ hours? Do I still need to pay for the full additional hour?
Yes. Any part of an hour will be counted as a full hour and will be charged as such.
Why do I need to pay even if I don’t come?
This applies only to parents/ guardians who do not notify us 24 hours in advance of their cancellation. Unity Church of the Hills uses paid staff for childcare. Our providers are trained in CPR and First Aid, and often have received special training above and beyond in order to provide quality care for your child(ren). The Church pays the staff for their time even when there are no children, and we ask parents/guardians to share that responsibility. With advance notice, we can reschedule our staff, so there is no charge for advance cancellations.
How are Sundays different? Do I need to register?
Our Youth and Family Ministry lovingly provides Sunday school classes for your children during Services. Childcare is also offered at no charge for those who need a little extra time before or after Services. Childcare staff are in Room 135 beginning at 8:45 am, and childcare ends at 1:15 pm. You can sign your child into childcare at a check-in station.
What do I need to bring for my child?
We ask that parents/guardians provide any diapering supplies needed, as well as food if their child has a special diet, or if childcare is during a meal time. We will provide snacks, activities, crafts, and love.
