Nursery (1-4 years)

Childcare at St. Anthony of Padua


The Little Ones of the Little Way Ministry is a nursery program for children ages 1 year to 4 years old. Our mission is to provide love, care, and formation to our children under the patronage of St. Therese of Lisieux and her ‘Little Way’ of doing small things with great love.

The nursery is open during:

  • Saturdays 8am – 11am for Confession and Daily Mass (for children 9 months to 5 years old)
  • Sunday 9am and 11am Masses (for children 1 year to 4 years old)

We are so excited to welcome your Little Ones to the Nursery! Each week we will be learning about one of the readings you will hear in Mass. We will be praying, singing, coloring and/or crafting and having some play time too.


We will also be using a reservation system each week to be able to anticipate how many staff members we will need to serve the needs of our parish families. This reservation will guarantee your child a spot.


Should you have any questions please reach out. We look forward to serving your family! Thank you.

Childcare for Events/Meetings


Childcare during Adult Faith Formation programs is provided by our Little Ones of the Little Way Nursery staff. Registration for childcare during adult events is by individual event date and time. This allows the nursery to be properly staffed to handle the quantity and ages of children registered, and ensures a safe environment for our children.


When available, you will find the childcare reservation and payment as an option in the adult program sign-up. The ministry or program leader is responsible for making childcare an option during their scheduled events.  If you desire childcare and do not see it listed on the adult program, contact the ministry leader to inquire if it can be made available.
