Welcome to the Dorothea Dix UU Community

Religious Education

For children age three  through the teens, our religious education program (known as RE) is concurrent to the adult service, from 10:00-11:00 a.m. each Sunday morning from September through the end of June.  For babies and toddlers, childcare is available as needed in a safe environment adjacent to the classroom space. Our baby and toddler area includes a high chair and playpen and is staffed by kind, experienced caregivers. Parents are always welcome.

The RE  program enrolls children on a rolling basis and visiting children are warmly welcomed.

Currently divided into two classes, the younger group follows an early grade school curriculum while the older group follows a middle school curriculum.  Many hands-on and kinesthetic activities accompany the central ideas of the lessons.  These include planting bulbs, following the life-cycle of a proximate tree, and creating a chalice out of clay.  Stories are also a central part of the curriculum and are told in both classes as a foundation of the lesson.

For more information or to ask any questions contact Bea Chawla or Angel Heller or come in person to spend some time in class, with your child.  Parents are always welcome.
