Child Care Center

Saint Mark’s is a Christ-centered community that welcomes all children. We encourage families to worship with their infants and toddlers at all services. At the same time, the cathedral offers many options for young children and their parents so all can have an opportunity for peaceful worship and study.

The Child Care Center is a great resource for children and parents. It is a warm and safe environment. The main childcare room is a bright space with many large and small motor development toys. The kids love having time to play and having quiet time in the comfy reading corner.

Sunday Mornings

8:30 a.m. – 12: 30 p.m. for children 3 months through age 5.

No reservations are required for Sunday mornings.

Anyone working with children at Saint Mark’s must successfully complete the Washington State Patrol background check and orientation training.

Special Event Childcare

Available for children ages 3 months through 13 by request for Wednesday evenings or special events. Please email childcare@saintmarks.org to make arrangements. Childcare may be cancelled for special events if sufficient reservations are not received 24 hours prior to the event.

Parents Night Out

Are you eager for a night out without the kids? Parents Night Out is an opportunity for your children to enjoy games, crafts and movie time with their friends at church, and for you to enjoy time alone, time together with your partner or friends!

The Childcare Center at Saint Mark’s is offering a monthly Parents Night Out Program.

Our qualified childcare workers will provide a safe and fun environment for your children age 3-10 in our well-equipped Childcare Center. Donations to support this ministry are encouraged and appreciated. Registration is required.

Parent Volunteers

We ask that regular member parents volunteer at least 6 times a year. We also encourage any adult who loves to rock babies, play an instrument or share a special gift to inquire about volunteering.

This is a way of giving back to the other parents who need a quiet moment in church. It also enables our staff to have such a low ratio of childcare provider to kids as we strive to give our full attention to each child.

The Child Care Center Teen Mentoring Program

Are you in 8-12 grade? Do you like to play with kids? Do you have school volunteer service requirements? If so, the Saint Mark’s Child Care Center is for you!

The Child Care Center Teen Mentoring Program teaches child development, safety, & lots of fun games while you earn volunteer hours for school.
