Many ways to contribute:

There is an ongoing need for Woodbrooke Day presenters to prepare a lesson for the third First Day of the month, when the regular FDS schedule is suspended. Presenters may explore Quaker history or concerns, teach a skill, bake cookies, or share a personal interest. Children learn something new and our community is strengthened by nurturing connections between children and adults. Time commitment is typically for one lesson a year. You can also volunteer to assist a Woodbrooke presenter by contacting the Program Coordinator.


***REMINDER: Feb 12 - NEW First Day School schedule begins:

On 2/12 we'll be switching to an 11:15 start time for classes with children joining adults in worship at 12:00.  

This is a change from past practice where children began upstairs. 

  • Please bring children to classes at 11:15.
  • First Day School teachers will be incorporating activities to support children in the transition to worship.
