Please join us at 10:15 each Sunday before Meeting for Worship for a First Day School Circle. In the Circle, adults and children will connect for a moment of quiet and fellowship. We will sing songs and share rituals. All members of our community (not just those with children) are encouraged to attend. At 10:30, children wishing to stay for the first 15 min are welcome. Others will transition to lessons with teachers and loving child care. We will have several teachers this year to meet the needs of different age groups.
