Leading Fun with Meaning


Leading Fun with Meaning

Programs for families and children are designed and coordinated by our Lifespan Faith Team with our member volunteers.

The core program for children up to age 12 takes place during the 11 am Sunday Morning service at UCV. It consists of core learning themes punctuated by special events, garden days, and festivals taking multiple learning styles, abilities, and interests into account.

We aspire to have our program

  • Engage the body, mind, and spirit
  • Ground ourselves with a sense of Unitarian Universalist identity, community, and values
  • Build a sense of warm-hearted, extended family where everyone belongs, everyone contributes, and everyone benefits.
  • Be a safe environment in which to explore and grow
  • Empower our children to be leaders beginning with our own multi-age community
  • Develop students’ confidence and ability to create change in large and small ways
  • Make story, music, movement and mindfulness a regular part of our lives
  • Connect with and celebrate nature & beauty everywhere we find it
  • Explore and honour the diversity of perspectives—in faith traditions and cultures
