Children's Program


Ordinarily, we offer childcare for children up through kindergarten age. However, this has been suspended during the pandemic.

Religious Education

We have a robust religious education program for grades 1 through 12.

The kids leave in-person worship after 20 minutes to go to their classes.

On the 4th Sunday of each month, they meet for worship at 10 just like the adults—but in two age groups: elementary grades and middle/high school—in separate rooms.

Our Curriculum

Grades 1–5

We will cover Quaker history, testimonies and values, and lessons from the New and Old Testaments.

Middle School

On a 3-year rotation, we cover world religions, service, and life stories.

High School

We discuss personal values, spiritual growth, and current issues from a Quaker perspective.

Our Quaker Values

Simplicity Peace Integrity Community Equality Sustainability

Community Service

As an outgrowth of learning about Quaker values and callings, classes may undertake meaningful service activities throughout the year to explore the personal, spiritual, and community values of service.

Youth Safety

We have developed a youth safety policy and guidelines for implementation to ensure safe First Day School classrooms.

Children and youth in First Day School are under the supervision of instructors and facilitators who have been screened and agree to comply with the policy and guidelines.

We want to ensure you feel safe leaving your kids in the care of our capable First Day School teachers.
