“No day can be so sacred but that the laugh of a little child
will make it holier still.”
~ Robert Ingersoll
Nursery (children 2 and under on August 1, 2012)
Nursery Hours: 9:00 am to 12:15 pm (during the 9:30 and 11:00 services)
For the youngest of children, loving nursery care is provided by qualified and screened childcare workers. Our nursery opens at 9:00 on Sunday morning and remains open until 12:15 pm. Children in the nursery will discover a fun array of books, puzzles, toys, and most importantly, hugs each and every week.
You can find Noel Burke working in the nursery. Click here to learn more about Noel.

Preschool children (2 and older by August 1) are encouraged to get involved in the opportunities each Sunday to begin discovering their self-identity, their connection with others, and the wondrous world around them. We offer age-appropriate stories and activities, led by volunteer teachers, each Sunday during the 9:30 and 11:00 services which are based on two Unitarian Universalist preschool curriculums; Celebrating Me & My World and We Are Many, We Are One. Each of these curricula features a weekly storybook and age-appropriate activities related to the message in the story.
So what are young children learning about? Below is a sampling:
Developing a positive self-image
Cooperative skills (sharing, listening, taking turns, etc.)
Nature and their connection to other living things
The church as a place of acceptance and friendship
Holidays and celebrations
We invite all preschool age children (and parents) to become involved in the program. For more information, or to register for classes, please contact Christie Lee.
