Children’s Program

How can we best raise compassionate, open-minded, and community-oriented kids?

At Humanist Haven, parents and kids alike can explore what it means to live a good life. It’s a place that encourages curiosity, asks big questions, and challenges us to consider what gives life meaning and purpose. It’s also a community of freethinkers eager to explore a wide range of issues relating to current events, science, history, culture, and ethics towards living an authentic and integrated life.

Humanism: An Alternative to Raising Children in Religion

humanismHumanist communities are committed to raising moral, compassionate kids. At Humanist Haven, we believe we can do this without religion; instead, cultivating curiosity, teaching religious literacy, modeling tolerance, and learning from evidence-based disciplines including science and social psychology. In all these things, we hope to foster deeper self-awareness and a sense of global citizenship and responsibility.

As a community, we also strive to embody universally recognized character strengths like kindness, compassion, courage, gratitude, a love of learning, and an appreciation of beauty and excellence.

By putting human beings and other living things at the center of our moral outlook, we’re able to create a worldview that wholeheartedly celebrates human progress and fosters human flourishing.

Join us for our new Children’s Program!

We will be piloting a regular children’s program during Humanist Haven, where we will be thinking and talking about all these big questions in a way your kids can engage with. Join us on Sundays at 1 PM at The Grove, 760 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT beginning on Sunday, September 11, 2016.
