Childcare is a Priority

Children, Friends Who Care For Youth

Our wider yearly meeting community is made of many local meetings and worship groups across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. We value the gifts, leadings, and ministry of everyone of every stripe! This includes the families and parents among us and their children.

Philadelphia Yearly Meeting therefore commits to offering childcare as much as we are able at committee meetings, PYM-sponsored events, and even quarterly-meeting-sponsored events. By making childcare consistently available with no requirement for pre-registration, the hope is that families, parents, and children will feel they are welcomed to participate to whatever extent sparks joy!

We hope you’ll take a look at our how to guides section of the PYM website, especially the page for arranging childcare.
