Our Sunday School: Ethics for Kids
Families of all backgrounds, particularly those with mixed religious heritage, trust Ethical Culture to provide a caring community in which children up to age 14 can learn to find answers to the most important questions in life.
Society members teaching in our Sunday School use age-appropriate curricula to help children understand themselves, their relationships to others around them and the world they live in.
Kids make friends and have fun as they gradually develop their own sense of morality and their own humanistic ideals.
