The Junior Sunday School (JSS) is for (potty-trained) children 3 through 5th graders, and is available whenever church services are held (9:15 & 11 am Sunday mornings, and for classes at 7 pm Wednesday evenings). A parent or guardian must sign their child(ren) in and out of the care of the JSS, and provide a current phone number so they may be reached if necessary. The curriculum is designed to help children discover their innate spirituality and oneness with God.

If your child has a fever or is otherwise unwell, please do not bring them to the Sunday school, 
as we strive to provide a healthy environment for ALL children,
and we are not equipped to administer medical care. 

If you need child care in order to attend a special event hosted by Unity of Springfield, pleaes submit your request for this service to the Church Office or directly to the Youth Co-Directors at least 3 business days prior to the event.

As she watches their individual uniqueness express, the joy Alice experiences helping children learn and grow is readily apparent.
