Mom's Morning Out at Cross Creek Church

Cross Creek MMO’s mission is to provide parents the opportunity to engage in life’s activities, appointments, or other outings while their children are cared for in a safe, loving, Christ-filled environment.

Cross Creek MMO is a ministry of Cross Creek Church. Therefore, we strive to exemplify our mission of “Glorifying God, by Inviting all into God’s Grace.”

Cross Creek MMO is a well-child nursery

Please use your best judgment and do not bring a contagious child to MMO.

Cross Creek MMO will do everything we can to keep your child safe and happy while they are with us. Please keep your phone on while you are away from your child in case we need to contact you for any particular reason.

Potty Training Policy

Due to the nature of our program and the ages we cater to, we understand that some children may enter potty training during their time with us. We cannot overly assist with potty training at MMO. Please send your training child in a pull up AT ALL TIMES to MMO. If they ask us to take them to the potty we will do that. We cannot be responsible for asking them if they need to go. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR TRAINING CHILD IN UNDERWEAR UNLESS THEY ARE 100% POTTY TRAINED AND WILL ASK US 100% OF THE TIME TO TAKE THEM TO THE POTTY.

Injury/Accident/Bite Policy

If your child is hurt in any way, we will make a decision based on the severity if we need to call and let you know. If it is not severe we will let you know upon pick up by providing an Ouch Report.

If your child is bitten or hurt by another child, we will call you and the parent of the child who was the aggressor.

If your child is the aggressor and hurts another child purposely in any way you will be notified. There will be 2 grace incidents. If there is a 3rd incident, the director will contact you concerning your child and following steps to stay in Cross Creek MMO.


Cross Creek MMO is committed to the safety of your children and the security of our building. We have a thorough security system in place which covers the entire building and all the doors.  The doors will be locked at all times and you will have to be let into the building by a staff member. We will use the side Nursery door (follow the signs). Feel free to contact me if you want more information about our security and I will provide as much information as safely possible. Part of a secure building is that the entire process is not disclosed so it keeps the security intact but I am happy to assure you if you would like to speak with me about it.
