Infants through 3 Years
For the youngest of children, loving nursery care is provided during both services. Babies and toddlers find many toys, books, and hugs in the nursery. Very simple activities are introduced for the older two-year-olds. Parents who wish to keep infants with them are welcome to bring babies to the service.
Pre-School and Kindergarten Spirit Play (mid-August through mid-May)
Spirit Play is a Montessori-based program that teaches children about Unitarian Universalist principles, history, and liturgy through storytelling and play. The Spirit Play classroom is a special, child centered place to be together to discover the spirit of love and mystery that some people call God. Children discover their own answers to the existential questions: Where did we come from? What are we doing here? How do we choose to live our lives? What happens when we die? Core stories of our faith are presented with special props. Following the stories, children are guided toward making meaning through wondering and art. A spiritual community that supports multiple learning styles is created.
