Pre-School and Elementary School Age Children

First Day School (FDS) is the Quaker equivalent of Sunday School. FDS is available to the children of members, attenders, and visitors, ages 3 and older. The First Day School is under the care of the FDS and Youth Programs Coordinator. The classes are clustered by age for preschool, elementary school, and all ages. Regular attendance is encouraged, but one-time or irregular attenders are also welcome. All meetings are currently remote via Zoom.
