    The format of this curriculum is exactly what we need in our toddler/preschool classroom. It is easy to follow and teach. God is calling our family to leave our home church, and go help a small church grow. One of the first things I noticed is that there is no structure and the curriculum is pulled from different resources; making planning ahead of time chaotic. Is there a 12 month curriculum?
    Thank you!

      Hi Wendy
      Thanks for the feedback. I hope things go well in your new work. On the website there are 3 lesson sets for infants and toddlers and then there are 170 Bible Story lessons for 3 and up. You could easily do the infant and toddler lessons over a year and use the other ones for preschoolers who are a bit older.

      Here is the page for the 170 lessons.

      If you covered one per week it would take a few years to go through them.

      Here is the infant and toddler curriculum page.

      I’m going to paste below something I wrote awhile back to someone who had the same question as you about infants and toddlers.

      God bless you in your teaching! Mary

      _____________________________________________

      “When I wrote this series my goal was to slow things down. I wanted the teacher and the child to take a gentle approach and savor the sensory experiences that infants and toddlers enjoy. My expectation was that each lesson would be taught at least twice. Infants and toddlers love repetition so I didn’t feel a need to have 52 different lessons over a year.

      Here’s how we do it at our church:
      We begin term 1 after the Christmas break (which is our summer here in New Zealand!)
      Term 1: God Created (6 lessons- each taught at least twice)
      Term 2: God With Me (6 lessons- each taught at least twice)
      Term 3: God Created (repeat as we did Term 1)
      Term 4: My Friend Jesus (6 lessons- each taught at least twice)

      Our teachers love teaching the Creation series and the children look forward to it. That’s why we don’t mind doing it twice.

      Eventually, when I finish the Noah series we will probably begin using that in Term 3.”
