The Lower Elementary Room is currently following the Wonderful Welcome, a UUA Tapestry of Faith curriculum.  

Wonderful Welcome will:

  • Expand children’s understanding of their relationships with others, including people they know, people they will meet and all life that shares our planet
  • Create opportunities for children to identify and practice a wide variety of welcoming behaviors; activate children’s capacity to welcome many manifestations of the interconnected web of life, including people, animals and the natural environment
  • Teach children the concept of “intangible gifts,” qualities that can be shared but cannot be seen or held
  • Teach the importance of welcoming as an act of Unitarian Universalist faith and as an expression of our Unitarian Universalist Principles
  • Develop and enrich children’s sense of belonging to their religious education peer community, their congregational community and the larger Unitarian Universalist faith community
  • Introduce practices of stewardship
  • Help children create a shared atmosphere that encourages a sense of reverence, awe, gratitude and wonder.
