Nursery and Preschool
Sundays from 9:30 until shortly after the service, we have childcare in the Nursery (look for the room with the Dr. Seuss mural on the wall at the bottom of the stairs) for babies through two-year-olds. Children move up to the Preschool room after their third birthday. Parents are required to sign their children in and out. Please see our Nursery Handbook for details about what to expect and what to bring.
Nursery Staff: Lead–Susan Betke; Assistants–Lily Bolton, Crystal Dorothy, Allyson Welbourne and Ted Blevins
Each Sunday from 9:30 until shortly after the service, the preschool group meets downstairs in the purple-walled classroom. Chalice Children is a program developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association that delves deep into our faith for this age group. It also provides experiences around the strength of community, the wonder and awe that transcend everyday understanding, and life issues we all share. Early childhood (the years between ages 2 and 5) is filled with curiosity and wonder. In a group setting, with loving adult guides, young children can engage in spiritual seeking, develop their openness to sharing, and experience the benefit of a supportive community. Their time in Chalice Children can set a pattern for the rest of their lives and bring lasting benefits. Their morning will include stories, activities, snacks and free playtime.
