Information for Families with Children: Services, Childcare and Youth Programming

Registration is Required

We hire our staff and shop for snacks and supplies based on registration numbers. Register now:

Minimum Age

Children must be at least 12 months of age to be left with childcare providers & teachers. Parents of younger infants are always welcome to come and stay with their children in our child care room.

If your child is not potty-trained, please provide all the diapering supplies and extra clothes they may need.

Your Children are Welcome Here

Children are a vital and vibrant part of our Har Shalom community. Children of all ages are welcome any time in the main service with their families. The voices of children are a true joy to hear during services, and attending with their parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends is a wonderful learning and spiritual experience for the entire family.

Attending Services as a Family

Need to step out? We’ve all been there. If your child becomes fussy and restless, we have a large lobby that you may utilize. You may also step outside with your child and supervise them on the playground.

Nursing Mothers

A small, quiet, private room will be set aside in the education building for nursing mothers to use.
