Children are ready to move up from the nursery into the Wanderers group when their family feels they are ready to be in a 4- to 7-year-old environment. Please speak with one of our CRE Team members if you are considering “graduating” your child up from nursery care.

The Wanderers meet in the Beach Room in the south hallway next to the nursery. This year, the Wanderers will focus on our Unitarian Universalist values using the national UU Association’s professionally developed curriculum Stories About God. Children in the Wanderers class will learn about a variety of God images that are in harmony with our UU principles. Ask Penny or Kate about the curriculum at any time!

Parents are welcomed to stay with their Wanderer during a child’s first few visits. We have found that children engage with class activities, acclimate to the routine, and bond with peers and teachers more smoothly when parents allow them to attend CRE by themselves. If you have visited and are concerned about whether your little one is ready to “fly solo,” feel free to discuss a plan with the teachers and/or the CRE Coordinator.
