New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

First Day School Resources

It is a time of great change and creative rethinking in Quaker Youth Education.  The Sunday School model of "one hour, once a week" which began in about 1860 is losing its effectiveness.  

New modes of gathering, learning, and sharing are springing up.

We support you whether you use a traditional First Day School model or one of the new variants that mixes ages, uses different formats or meets on different days or at different times.
