Here is a poem I found some time ago online for nursery volunteers. You might attach to a little gift or just print it out on a pretty piece of paper. Take the time to tell them how much you truly appreciate them! Again...(I do this alot!) I am sorry that I cannot give credit to the original author.
Update: This poem was written by Lois Turley. You can find the poem here at the author's website.
Mama left me in the church nursery.
She said, "You can stay here and play."
I was so very afraid, but you comforted me.
And Mama was saved that day.
At least once a month in the nursery,
You served God by caring for me
So Mama could attend church and learn to make
Our home everything it should be.
There were those who said, "I'm too busy,"
Or, "I don't want to miss church today.
I'm too young. I'm too old. I've done my part.
The nursery? Please, don't ask me to stay."
But you said, "No, I'm not too busy.
I'm just the right age I know.
I could never do enough for the King that I serve.
When you need me in the nursery I'll go."
My life might have been so different
If you had not answered God's plea
For workers to serve where the need is so great,
To care for little people like me.
Thank you for keeping the nursery.
Mama taught me to follow Christ, too.
Many people had a part, but the most special one
To me will always be you
