Music and Movement Program
Music and Movement is an ongoing educational music experience program for children ages four to nine. There are separate classes for each age group. This multidisciplinary program combines elements of Orff-Schulwerk and Kodaly methods with traditional philosophies of music education. This combination of singing, playing, listening, moving and creating encourages musical, social, emotional and physical development.
While there is a fee associated with this program, scholarships are available to UUCLB members.

Our Whole Lives (OWL) Lifespan Sexuality Education Curricula
Our Whole Lives
is a series of sexuality education curricula for six age groups: grades K-1, grades 4-6, grades 7-9, grades 10-12, young adults (ages 18-35), and adults.

Our religious education program offers OWL classes on a rotating basis, with trained teachers and extensive parent involvement. Currently we are offering classes only to our youth. For our teens, the Our Whole Lives curriculum helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior.

For all ages it equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, Our Whole Lives provides not only facts about anatomy and human development, but helps participants to clarify their values, build interpersonal skills, and understand the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality.
