Children/Youth

Providing childcare for congregational events is an important part of making our community accessible to families.

For Children age 7 and older, check our RE Calendar for RE class details. RE is excited to kick off our new Mindfulness and yoUU curriculum for 2019-2020 which will connect mindfulness/meditative practices from different faith traditions and cultural communities to Unitarian Universalism’s Seven Principles.

Each Sunday, children and youth are guided to explore their budding spirituality and natural curiosity. Children begin each Sunday in the sanctuary, then, after a “Story for All Ages,” are invited to attend their own classes in our RE wing.

For Infants and Children up to age 6,  parents are welcome to bring them to the Play Room, every Sunday from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm. Please bring any necessary items for your children and pick them up promptly before 1:00 pm.

 

A MESSAGE FROM OUR RELIGIOUS EXPLORATION (RE) DIRECTOR

Barbara Jimenez was named director of our Religious Exploration program beginning August 2017.
My name is Barbara and my husband and I have two lively children, our son is 13 and our daughter is 16. After earning my Bachelors in Elementary Education and Masters in Reading Education from FIU, I began my career as a school teacher in the public school setting. I taught young children in Kindergarten and First grade for eight years. I retired so I could be a stay-at-home mom which I did for six years. In 2009, I founded a home-based early childhood program with a focus on nature, play, & social development for the whole child. In May of 2017 I decided to close my program so that I could pursue other passions such as working with parents to help guide them on a Conscious Parenting path. I love everything Holistic and am passionate about sharing what I learn with others. I feel that guiding others through their transformation will help us begin to transform humanity as a whole. Ever since I could remember I have been interested in learning about metaphysics, nutrition, religions, spirituality, the human experience and children. I consider myself a life-learner.
