Burlington Friends Meeting
First Day School
Peace Demonstration during First Day School
First Day School is held on Second and Fourth Sundays, beginning at 10:45 in the Bassett House. The entrance is across the driveway from the Meeting House. Children who choose to participate in the first 15 minutes of Meeting for Worship are escorted by an assigned childcare worker to the Meeting House just before 11 a.m. and back to the Bassett House at 11:15 a.m. The First Day School program concludes just after 12 noon, when the children rejoin their parents at the Meeting House.

The curriculum lays the foundation for understanding the basic Quaker values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Earthcare, through stories, conversations, exploratory projects, and play. Older children also study Quaker history and teachings with a curriculum that is tailored to their level of curiosity and understanding.

Infant and toddler care is offered every Sunday.
