I’ve always heard of it as Cry Room. I think if your guests are Catholic, they def. will know what you mean. Even if they are not, I dont know why they would be offended, if anything it will be a relief that they have somewhere to go if their child becomes upset/antsy during the ceremony.

you could call it a nursery. that wont seem as bad for the non catholics. just put in the program “for the little ones who get antsy there is a nursery in the back where you can watch the ceremony and your little ones can play!” or something like that.

As a non-Catholic but church going person, I would get the idea, pretty sure lots of places have rooms with that same general idea.

I’ve heard creche or cresch but the term does sort of imply that there are nannies there to help.

I would say something like, “For guests with younger children, if you need a space to play or take a break, there is a room located in the back of the church. Thank you!”

@Diz: I like what you wrote a lot. Children’s Room seems even friendlier!

Nursery/Nursing Room, Quiet Time, Silent Room…Cry Room! =)
I love having the option (even though I dont have kids)

I like “cry room.” That’s what I’ve heard most often. When I hear “nursery,” for some reason it makes me think that it is a place where you can drop your baby off and someone else will take care of him!
