3rd through 12th Grades

Our 3rd through 12th graders participate in a program called We’re in This Together (WiTT), which grew out of discussions about the best way to serve our students using pedagogical best practices. During each class session all of the WiTT students and their teachers start out together and then break out to participate in small group activities.

The 2017-18 curriculum for our WiTT group is Harry and the UU, a fun and educational social justice curriculum based on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels. The curriculum includes many fun Harry Potter-based activities, but the main purpose of the curriculum is social action. The class will form a chapter of Dumbledore’s Army and will complete real-world social action projects.

K thru Second Grade

Spirit Play

The Montessori and Berryman worship approaches form the structure of Spirit Play. As in Montessori, the key elements are the classroom environment and the teachers. These elements free the children to work at their own pace on their own issues after an initial lesson. Spirit Play is a proven educational method whose values support Unitarian Universalism.

Please note that pre-school through 3rd graders have flexibility to attend the appropriate group (childcare/Spirit Play/class) according to their interests and readiness. Nicole Alemanne, Director of Religious Education, is happy to work with parents to assess the best placement for their children.

Babies, Toddlers, and PreK

Childcare is available in our Nursery on Sundays from 10AM to 1PM. Babies and toddlers up to and including four years of age can be registered for care in the Nursery.

Please bring a diaper bag each week with spare diapers and a change of clothes. No attempt is made to conduct a structured program for children of this age. We have, however, set the following goals for children of this age group:


Religious Education Registration

All children and adolescents involved in any Religious Education program at UUFG, including Youth Group, must have a current, updated, registration form filled out and on file.

A new registration form needs to be filled out annually or whenever a child’s living situation changes. Any time new people wish to attend UUFG Religious Education classes, they can register.

Parents, children and youth do NOT need to be members of UUFG to register for and participate in UUFG Religious Education and Youth Group programs.
