Welcome to the Ethics for Children program at the Ethical Culture Society of Westchester! Below you will find some basic information that will help you make the most of your experience with us.PCM ECSW marchers 4web

What time should I arrive?
Most children arrive between 10:15-10:30 so they have a few minutes to get oriented before joining the Society for the start of Platform. Please sign your child in when you arrive. The Ethics for Children program begins at 10:45 and runs until the end of Platform at 11:45. Children will then join their families for snacks and hospitality.

What should I do if my child has to miss a class?
If you are unable to attend a particular week, we request that you email the Director of Ethical Education to let her know your child will not be in attendance so that they can plan effectively.

Can parents participate in the classroom?
Of course!  Parents are always welcome to join us. Please contact the Director of Ethical Education if there is something in particular you would like to do or share.

Can my child bring friends?
Yes.  Anyone is welcome to try the program up to three times before registering.

Can my child be enrolled in the Ethics for Children program, even if the adults in his/her life are not members of ECSW?
All children regardless of membership are invited to participate. We are working to build a community of families at ECSW and parents who are not currently members of the Society are asked to make a yearly suggested donation of $400.00.  To ensure safety, parents or guardians must be onsite at all times for children in fifth grade or younger.

How do I get more involved as a parent?
Come to our Ethical Education meetings! Meetings will be posted on the website calendar and EFC bulletin board.

Who should I contact if I have questions, concerns or suggestions?
We strive to make the program work for every child. Please feel free to reach out to our director, Sabine Salandy at any time: ssalandy@ethicalsocietywestchester.org
