Nursery Care for Babies and Toddlers up to Age Four

The nursery is staffed by childcare providers during Sunday morning worship services. We hope each child develops a sense of belonging in this warm and welcoming place.


The preschool class for three- and four-year-olds is exploring the Chalice Children curriculum. Students engage in spiritual seeking, develop their openness to sharing, and experience the benefit of a supportive community.

K-6th Grades 

Children in a K-6th grades have a new curriculum this year, Soul Matters Sharing Circle, which uses our liturgical themes of the month.

7th-8th Grades

7th-8th graders alternate each year between the Our Whole Lives (OWL) comprehensive sexuality education program and the Coming of Age program to explore life’s big questions and articulate personal values and beliefs. For more information about these invaluable programs, contact Teresa Putnam, Director of Lifespan Faith Development.

High School

The high school youth, with the support of adult advisors, determine their own activities and goals for the year. Typically, they engage in social action, community building, worship, and leadership development.

All parents and guardians who are raising children up to age 18 are welcome to join our UU Lansing Parents Facebook group.
