We are all flames. 

When we gather hand in hand in our church, our community, and our home.

We inspire, we celebrate, we come together

Sharing our light of hope for our shared future.

Eliot Chapel's nursery and preschool space


Young Children's Activities (Birth through Preschool)


Supervised play and age-appropriate UU activities for nursery and preschool-age children (five and younger) are available during the 10:00 am worship service most Sundays beginning September 11, 2022. For children aged two (2) and younger on August 1, 2022, the nursery* is full of books, toys, music, and fun. Supervision and care are provided by Eliot staff members and volunteer leaders beginning at 9:30 on Sunday morning.  


Eliot’s preschool class* meets most Sundays beginning September 11, 2022 and is designed to provide an introduction to Unitarian Universalism for preschool children aged three (3) and older by August 1. Gatherings are led by staff and volunteer leaders and include free play, stories, and activities from Unitarian Universalist curricula for young children, including Chalice Children, Soul Matters, and Rainbow Connection, which provide age-appropriate introductions to UU values, principles, identity, and spirituality. When weather and staffing permit, a portion of the time may be spent on the Eliot Chapel Nursery School Playground. 


*Note: Nursery and preschool classes may be combined based on enrollment, attendance, and availability of volunteers and staff. All classes are required to have two adults present at all times.
