Sunday School curriculum varies by age. Each class explores different facets of the Unitarian Universalism faith and principles. Here is a list of what each age group studies.
Newborn to three years – Child Care
Child care is provided in the Kemp nursery, located near Bragg Auditorium, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Sunday. All Souls employs the same nanny every week so young toddlers and babies become familiar with the caregiver. Parents are welcome to stay in the nursery until their child is comfortable. Parents are provided a QRC they can access on their smart phones to observe their children while in the nursery.
