Third Haven Friends Meeting Announce Spring Calendar for Children


Third Haven Friends Meeting (the Quakers) has released its Spring 2019 Calendar of First Day School activities.

For those of you unfamiliar with Quakerspeak, First Day School is called Sunday School at most churches.

From now through June 9, Third Haven will host a special program for children every Sunday morning. Three different programs will be featured:

These sessions focus on helping kids build their toolbox of mindfulness techniques through immersion in nature. They will be led by Third Haven’s talented summer camp teachers, Cherie Baron and Kristen Hanlon.

These are beautiful stories about the roots of Quakerism and Quaker values, told by teachers trained in a Montessori-inspired manner. Susan Claggett will be the program leader.

Based on the curriculum of Little Big Minds, this monthly dialogue taps into the natural wisdom, curiosity and wonder of young children to explore how to think clearly about life’s biggest queries – e.g., What is philosophy?Friendship? Happiness? Justice? Love? Peace? And what role do we play in the world? The program leaders will be Dee Rein, Jeanne Halpin and Candace Shattuck.
