UU & Me Song Circles
for children ages 0-7 with their families
Outdoors • Weekday afternoons, week of September 30 – November 4, 2022
Gather with other families* of babies, toddlers, and pre-K kids in UUCL’s Chalice Garden for an interactive program of music, movement, and FUN!
Grounded in UU Principles & music, open to friends new and old!
We love connecting creatively to music! Enjoy this video from our 2021 Stuffed Animal Sleepover:
What? This 45-minute program series created by Lenore Bajare-Dukes with Eli Sauls and Diane Toigo in 2022 is built around music, movement, and FUN! Led by UUCL educator staff and member musicians, we’ll get to know the sacred songs in the UU living tradition that invite us to dance, to wonder, to play. We’ll explore playful movement and musical instruments, and learn songs connecting us to justice movements. We’ll offer moments for parents/caregivers to bond with their little ones, and chances to get to know other adults.
When? Fridays, 4PM, running week of September 30 – November 4.
Why: Music is a great way for babies, toddlers, and pre-K kids to bond with their caregivers and to begin to connect to community. Sharing music helps families develop a shared relationship to Unitarian Universalist values and cultural touchstones. As your child grows and connects, so do you!
*Who: We know that families come in many shapes and sizes and identities, and that love makes a family. Parents, foster parents, aunts and uncles and auncles, grandparents, and other caregivers helping raise children are welcome!
• The program is grounded in our 8 UU Principles and includes a mix of Unitarian Universalist and other music. Whether you identify as UU, are curious about liberal religious community, or are a friend or neighbor looking to connect, you will be welcome.
• Older siblings are invited too – they can help and participate, or choose to read or play in a space provided for them.
• Adults are encouraged to participate and enjoy themselves. Taking cues from caregivers is important to young children’s fun and bonding! Adults will be responsible for staying with their children at all times.
Cost: UUCL is offering this program as part of our mission to grow and connect in love. There is no fee to participate. If you are able at this time to contribute toward what it takes to run this program (including staff time, building maintenance, and materials) and maintain this community, we ask you to contribute what you can. We also welcome other forms of help – like taking turns hosting the older siblings area. You can give online (specify UU & Me in memo) or email us.
Commitment to COVID-19 safety: UUCL is committed to keeping each other and our wider community as safe as we can. Each family/household will bring and sit on their own blanket. At this time, masks outdoors are your own choice, but masks are required to enter the building to use the bathroom.
