Nursery Coordinator: Therese  Brooks

Hello, my name is Therese Brooks. I have been the Nursery Coordinator/attendant since the spring of 2005. I am married to Robert Brooks and together we have 4 children; Danielle: age 21, and Triplets Chris, Corey and Cody: age 19. I have always had a great love for children, especially little children and babies. I have no professional schooling, but babysat since I was 11 and then raised my own family. In First Presbyterian Church Nursery, babies and little ones through age 3, receive loving compassionate care, but also I try to keep my care along the Christian guidelines of loving, sharing, and caring for one another. We read stories and sometimes sing songs. There are many toys which teach pretending and also many fun developmental toys. I personally greet each child and parent and try to keep the experience as upbeat and fun as possible. I always encourage parents to stay with their child or children as long as it takes the little ones to become comfortable.
