Education

Nursery care for infants, toddlers, & preschoolers – 10:30 am to 11:45 am each Sunday. Free nursery care is provided to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, aged 6 months to 3 years old.  All children must be picked up at 11:45 at the nursery room in the RE wing.

Registration – All children participating in RE must have a registration form signed by a parent or guardian. This is to ensure the safety of each child as well as make sure your family is notified about RE activities. There is no charge to register your child in church school; the cost of the RE program is included in the total church budget.

Age-appropriate groups (Pre-K- 1st Grade, Grades 2-5, Grades 6-11) are led by teams of volunteer teachers and leaders who are members and friends of the congregation.  Nursery and Pre-K-1st grade go to their classrooms upon arrival.  All other children/youth begin their Sunday with the rest of the congregation for opening service and a Story for All Ages.  Nursery and Pre-K-1st grade need picked-up by a parent or guardian by 11:45.  Older Children will be dismissed for coffee hour with the rest of the congregation.

New Family Welcome!
We invite families just discovering Unitarian Universalism to join us for several weeks to decide if our Church and Religious Education program is right for you. You are welcome to “sit in” on your child’s class and to talk with their teachers and the DRE at any time. Other parents are also a good resource for learning more about UU religious education.

New families are invited to meet with the Director of Religious Education (DRE) at any time during the year for a tour of our facilities and/or a get-acquainted chat, either at the church or at their home.

Newcomer orientations are offered by the minister several times a year.  A First UU Brochure is available in the lobby, as well as, several Unitarian Universalist Association publications.  A packet of information for new families is available upon request from the Director of Religious Education.

The RE Program for Children & Youth is a cooperative program that depends on the efforts of many adult volunteers. Please consider helping the RE program by serving on the RE Committee, teaching or assisting a class or workshop, donating supplies, helping maintain the play yard, keeping the supply closet organized, planning special events, or any other way that you’d like to help.
