NOTE: As of March 2020 the First Day School is CLOSED because of the pandemic, but during the summer months (June-Sept. 2020), while the adults are gathering for Silent Worship in the Meeting House Garden, our First Day School teacher can put together an outdoor activity for children. Please email clerk(at)renofriends.org ahead of time if you are interested in bringing children to Reno Friends Meeting during this time.
Children who are too young for an hour of silent worship are invited to attend our First Day School. Young children begin the hour with the adults, participating in silent worship in our Meeting House. After ten minutes, the children quietly step out and gather in the adjacent First Day School building. our long-time FDS teacher and an adult volunteer offer an informal lesson to the children from 10:10 to 11 am.
The children rejoin the adults at 11 am and share with the meeting what they have done during First Day School.
Here are some of our First Day School attendees in recent years:
