Nursery and Pinecone Class
3 Months through 1st Grade
Our nursery welcomes children from 3 months to Pre-K, through
5 years old. Here, your youngest children will find a variety of toys
in rotation that encourage play, exploration, and learning. We also
have a restroom. Nursery staff may not change diapers or assist
children in the bathroom; if your child needs either, you will
receive a text to attend to your child.
Our dedicated staff member JW Wenzel supervises the nursery
here at EUUF. We strive to have a second adult from the Fellowship
in the nursery to get to know our little ones.
In the nursery JW facilitates a loose rhythm, giving each child the
choice in how they spend their time. A typical Sunday will include:
Plenty of free play
Invitation to Circle Time
Lighting our Chalice
Sharing our Joys and Sorrows
Reading a story, usually related (in an age-
appropriate way) to the sermon upstairs or
to the seven Principles of UU
Closing the circle
Engaging the children in a project or craft

Please always sign your child into the nursery and connect with JW before taking your child out. If at any time during the service your child needs you, we will contact you by text--please leave your cell phone on vibrate. Feel free to stay in the nursery or come and go as you and your child needs.
Children in the Nursery need to be picked up directly after the service. Coffee hour follows the service in the big room called Beaman Hall, which is located across the hall from the Nursery. Tables, chairs and snacks are provided for some good socializing. If your child has specific dietary needs, please let us know so we can try to have safe options available at future Sundays!
