The Nursery Ministries of Dunwoody UMC provide loving and safe childcare for children 6 months through 5 years old. Our experienced staff care for children in an age appropriate, Christian environment while you attend worship, Sunday School, Bible study or other church related activities.

At Dunwoody UMC, we aren’t just here for you on Sundays. One of our most popular and appreciated ministries is our weekday drop-in childcare program, Playtime at DUMC. All children are welcome to attend any day you need a little extra help meeting the time demands of your daily life. Also, Playtime at DUMC offers an excellent starting point for children just leaving mom and home for the first time.

Check-in Procedure

For the smoothest check-in, click here to create your KidCheck account before arrival.

All children must be checked in at our KidCheck kiosk located in the Activities Building before going to their designated classrooms. Each child will be given a name tag with their location, activity, and any special needs noted.

The security code on the child’s tag will correspond with a separate tag given to the parent. Children must wear a tag for each activity they will be attending to ensure that volunteers know when they will be picked up. The parent is responsible for ensuring that their child is in the appropriate room with a leader at drop off.
