Poll: Dedicated Children’s Church Classrooms
Thank you to Jenne for suggesting this poll topic.
When I attended a baby blessing at a friend’s LDS ward building, I was thrilled by their nursery room. The room had windows on the doors so parents could check on their children without interrupting the class; huge, built-in toy boxes and shelves; and (best of all) an adjacent restroom with a toddler-sized toilet.
In my ward building, the children’s classrooms look like all of the other rooms. The advantage to generic rooms is flexibility–any children’s classroom could be used as an adult classroom instead, if necessary. However, such generic rooms sacrifice the opportunity to include age-appropriate decor, supplies and amenities.
