On Sunday mornings:
Red class: Preschoolers (ages 3-5) may attend Red class if they wish. Red class meets in Room 1 (near the Main Hall) from mid-August through May. Preschoolers may attend the first part of the service with their parents, and leave for Red class when the other children leave. Parents are always welcome to join their child(ren) in Red class.
Our Red class teachers are not able to change diapers, so parents of preschoolers who are 3 years old but not yet toilet trained should talk with the teachers to see if Red class is a good choice.
Staying in the service: Preschoolers are always welcome to stay with their parents in the service in the Main Hall. Note that if your child needs to be active, you can take your child in the lobby where you can hear and watch the service without worrying about disturbing others. Also, the ushers have a limited number of earpieces that allow you to hear the service while playing with your child on the playground.
Child care options: Preschoolers who are at least three years old may go to child care in Room 2/3. Our child care workers in Room 2/3 are not able to change diapers; however, the child care workers in Room 7/8 can accommodate 3 year olds who are not toilet trained.
