First Day School for Children

The Fall 2016 session of First Day School is underway for the children in our meeting.  

The presence of our children is an important part of New Haven Friends. Each Sunday, children are with their parents for the first 15 minutes of Meeting for Worship; then they may join First Day School classes or remain in Meeting for Worship. Parents play a central role in First Day School, and along with other experienced adults from Meeting, provide a safe and nurturing environment for children.

Children are grouped into classes by age from pre-school through high school. Classes focus on Quaker beliefs, practices and concerns in ways that are age-appropriate.  For more information, CLICK HERE.
