A loving foundation of religious community
The early childhood years are filled with curiosity and wonder. Our programs for young children at Foothills provide a nurturing and loving spiritual foundation and introduce simple rituals and develop a sense of safety in a supportive community with caring adult leaders.
Our Early Childhood Group meets during our 10am church service
This group provides a spiritually grounding touch point for kids age 3 1/2 – 1st grade, anchored in relationship, fun, and free exploration. Each Sunday begins with children joining their parents in the sanctuary at 10am for the first 20-30 minutes of the service. Then kids head over to our education building for stories, music, art, active time, and connecting conversations. Our Early Childhood Coordinator, Amber Lamb – has extensive experience as a preschool teacher and Unitarian Universalist Religious Educator.

It’s Just a Phase: Early Childhood
Early childhood is a phase of extremely rapid growth and change when little ones need develop trust in the world by experiencing safety and love.
If something your child is doing is challenging, don’t worry! They will have moved on to something else by next week! Our primary goal in our early childhood groups at Foothills is to provide a nurturing and embracing environment where they know that they are safe and loved.
