Nursery: Our nursery offers a fun environment for our youngest children (0 - 5 years old) to make new friends and play. Older nursery children (ages 3+) can also choose the next class in our series, which is a more structured class environment for children who are ready for a story-based curriculum.
Story Time (3 - 7 year olds): Based on the Montessori method, and drawing on a “morning as worship” model, this class embraces self-directed learning and multiple learning styles. Through story, wondering, and creative response, children make meaning of the language of faith and life’s questions. This year’s stories will be drawn from a variety of religious traditions.
Trail Blazers (7-10 year olds): “Wisdom from the World's Religions” introduces faith traditions, practices, and beliefs from major world religions, and then invites participants to apply these to their own individual understanding of big questions, such as who or what is god, and what happens when we die, and what is the purpose of religious rituals.
Creativity Club (10-14 year olds): This group will draw from “Wisdom from the World's Religions” and “Building Bridges,” a world religions program to deepen youth's understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search. Participants will join high school youth in visiting neighboring houses of worship.
High School Youth (grades 9-12): The Youth Group works with adult advisors to plan programs which include personal sharing, discussion of religious and ethical issues, guest speakers from other religions and from the community, service projects, participation in district youth conferences, and worship. This year youth will explore “Neighboring Faiths.” This UU curriculum explores the history and development of different faith traditions. The youth will plan their own program by choosing which religious groups to learn about, visit and relate to their own growing faith.
Regular attendance makes a real difference in your child's experience. It helps your child establish friendships and provides a sense of continuity for students and teachers alike.
