Nursery-Playschool (Religious Education) and Sawyer Nursery School (Sawyer House)
UUCR offers Nursery Care on Sunday mornings during both worship services!
We offer a fun and nurturing nursery/play space for babies and toddlers (to age 4) during both worship services (9:15am, 11:00am) or on ‘Single Service Sundays’ at 10:00am. Our Nursery is located in the Sawyer Nursery School, staffed by professional childcare providers Terry and Stacey Hill who are assisted by church members (adults and older youth). Children may be delivered to the nursery ten minutes prior to the start of worship services during the months of September through June. (See our church calendar or announcements for worship schedule). Nursery care resumes on Sunday September 10, 2017-worship begins at 10am that morning!
Additional child care is offered for nursery and elementary aged children during some church meetings and other events. Kindly check with our Director of Lifespan Religious Education for more information. All of our Sunday morning Religious Education programming, including Nursery Care, is open for visitors and there are no fees for participation.
Sawyer Nursery School, is a non-profit early childhood pre-school that operates Monday through Friday throughout the school year and has provided preschool fun and early learning experiences to Reading’s children for over 50 years.
UUCR holds the license for the school, and by charter, church members make up more than half of the school’s board positions. At least two educational spaces are reserved for children of UUCR families each year. New members are always welcome on the school board, which meets monthly. If you have an interest or experience in early childhood education and would like to help guide the school’s mission, contact the Sawyer School Board Chairperson.
Sawyer offers a Tuesday/Thursday morning program for 2.9 and 3 year olds, a Monday/Wednesday/Friday morning program for 4 and 5 year olds, and the option of a weekly ‘Lunch Bunch’ extended day for all.
To schedule a tour, contact school Director Deb Harvey at 781-944-9581,firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website. If you know of a preschooler (between 2.9 years and 5 years) who would like to attend the school, feel free to inquire about that as well. Nursery schools don’t come much better than this!
