SEEK Programming for Children
SEEK — Spiritual and Ethical Exploration for Kids — is designed to help young people navigate our complicated world with courage, compassion and curiosity.
For details about your child’s classroom, please see the tabs below. (We also have programming for youth.) And see the Calendar for Children and Youth or visit the Church Calendar for all church events, including Sunday School.
If your child has special needs in learning, behavior, or health, please contact our Director of Lifespan Education and Engagement, Kate Holland, to discuss how we can best support your family to promote comfort, inclusion and accessibility for your child.
Registration for the current church year is open.
Please register your children and youth here.
Children are welcome in the sanctuary during Sunday Services, or parents are invited to bring their young children to our childcare classroom if they wish. Childcare for infants through age two opens around 9:45 and we ask parents to pick up their children when the service ends around 11:00. Our child caregivers are dedicated to creating a welcoming, fun and comfortable place for our youngest church-goers.
Our three- and four-year-olds enjoy age-appropriate stories, songs, and activities that invite them to play and learn about the connections and principles that we hold dear here at First Parish.
Chidren in the Kindergarten-through-3rd Grade class will be using the Tapestry of Faith curriculum Wonderful Welcome. This curriculum helps children identify the intangible gifts central to Unitarian Universalism such as friendship, hospitality, and fairness and share these gifts with others.
Children in Grades 4 through 7 will be working with the Popcorn Theology curriculum. This curriculum uses clips from popular movies to help the children have discussions about moral and social issues and how our Unitarian Universalist faith can help us as we face these things in our own lives.
