Childcare for Infants & Toddlers – 9:45am – 11:30
Offered in the Nursery (downstairs)
Visiting parents may stay with your children in the nursery and listen to the service via our audio system, or complete a visitor form allowing children to stay with our professional staff while you enjoy the service and some time in community hour. Please see the Childcare brochure or staff for more information.
Children in pre-school and older start the morning in the Sanctuary with their families before exiting to the Common Room for a brief UU Kids Ingathering before classes and programs begin. Visiting children and parents are invited to join us. Parents may fill out a visitor form allowing your children to attend on their own. We ask that children in pre-school through second grade are picked up promptly at the end of their scheduled program. Older children are dismissed from classes and workshops and may join their parents in a pre-determined meeting place. For safety sake, children must accompanied in the building by their parents.
