The Nursery

Parents and their children, from birth through pre-K, love this warm, clean, sunlit room. Simple, age-appropriate toys and craft materials are available for the children. While there is no pre-determined curriculum, adult caregivers intentionally seek to engage the children in activities that model, through age-appropriate language and example, fundamental Quaker values such as peacemaking  (“I’m sorry!), equality (“Now it’s your turn!) and community (“I know how you feel.”).  The outdoor playground and fresh air are immediately accessible from the nursery.

Nursery care is available nearly every Sunday during Meeting for Worship, 11:00 a.m.--12 noon and monthly during the business meeting, 1:00 p.m.--2:30 p.m, which parents are always encouraged to attend.

If your young child is uncomfortable being away from you, you could stay with them in the nursery with the childcare provider until they feel at ease. Whether this takes a few minutes or a few weeks, we trust that you know best what your child needs.

Please let the caregiver know if your child has any dietary restrictions!
