The nursery provides care during the service for infants through age 2 on most Sundays. Days when no CYRE is offered, such as Multi-Generational Services, the Nursery is available for children up to age 3. The Nursery is available from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm on Sundays. Child care may also be provided for other congregational events. A registration form (linked above) is also required for your little ones who will be enjoying our Nursery.
Preschool Curriculum 2017/18 — Ages 3 to 4 years
A central concept of Unitarian Universalism is the seven Principles that all congregations affirm and promote. These Principles are considered to be strong values and moral guides that each of us may use to guide our lives.
Although preschool children are too young to memorize the Principles, we can begin to acquaint them with the ideas behind the Principles. We can focus on the values inherent in each – values that all parents wish to instill in their children, such as respect, trustworthiness, fairness, caring, responsibility and good citizenship.
The Rainbow Connection uses popular story books for preschoolers to discuss those values inherent in the Principles and in Unitarian Universalism. At the preschool age, children begin to understand the concepts of justice and fairness and begin to learn about what is “right” and “wrong”, or “good” and “bad”. Story books are chosen to help illustrate the values supported by parents.
