Childcare and First Day School

Our Children’s Program is called First Day School because historically Quakers call Sunday, “First Day”. The purpose of First Day School is to provide a warm environment for children to connect with each other and the Spirit within, and to experience a sense of community.

First Day Children’s Program meets outdoors, rain or shine and is open to ages 5 on up. Families interested in reserving their young folks’ attendance, e-mail Children’s Religious Education Committee.

Each First Day has a theme, as follows:

  • 1st First Day: EFM stewardship
  • 2nd First Day: Games
  • 3rd First Day: Quakers
  • 4th First Day: Crafts
