Childcare

Many families rely on Sunday morning Religious Education as a way for their children and youth to engage with the church while parents and guardians attend worship services. Since formal religious education typically begins at age 4, we also offer child care for infants and toddlers. 

Childcare, therefore, may be a family’s first introduction to UUCB’s Religious Education program.  So, although there is no attempt to follow a curriculum or focus on any specific learning objectives, childcare team members act in accordance with the values, standards and expectations of our Religious Education programming and of our church.

  • We stand for social justice. 
  • We are welcoming and inclusive to all.
  • We accept you wherever you are on your faith journey.
  • We care for our earth.
  • We nurture one another.

The mission of our Childcare Team is to provide safe, nurturing, and supportive care for the infants, toddlers and children entrusted to us.  

Sunday Mornings

Childcare typically opens 45 minutes before the start of the first service, and continues until 15 minutes past the end of children’s religious education classes.

Typical Hours for Sundays with Two Services:  8:30am – 12:45pm

Typical Hours for Sundays with One Service:   9:30am – 11:45am

Other events

If childcare is needed for meetings and other church-related events, please send a request at least 2 weeks in advance and we will do our best to arrange it.  The more lead time given, the more likely it is that we will be able to find staff available!
