The First Day School Committee and Wilton Monthly Meeting are delighted to let you know that, beginning January 29th, 2017 we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.

Any children attending Meeting or First Day School can now choose to sit on a rug on the floor in front of the fireplace, Other children as well as one friendly adult will be there too! In First Day School, the children are each creating a "sit-upon" to make their space their own as well as a bit comfier. We will have a few extras for visitors.
