Preschool Essentials

In the Preschool years, parents should focus on...

 

1. Building trust with their child.

When a child learns to trust their caregivers whom they can see, it becomes a natural thing for them to transfer that trust to a God they cannot see.

 2. Establishing good spiritual habits

  - attend church regularly

  - establish bedtime routine of blessing and Bible story

  - establish a regular family devotion time (start with 1 time a week)

 3. Reading basic foundational Bible stories
 4. Capturing  God moments

These are informal moments where God is working in the life of your child. Use these moments to point them to Christ.

 

Here at Carmel...

Each week, preschoolers (2 and older) take home numerous crafts and activities that they have worked on during the Sunday School hours. Preschoolers learn by doing.  When they are part of the process, they can better remember the concepts taught.  The work they bring home is also intended to initiate conversation between parent and child.  It allows you to ask questions about the things they have learned.  Even at these early ages, our intent is not just to provide information.  You will often find we have talked about life application skills and virtues (obedience, helpfulness, thankfulness, sharing).  As parents, you can help them find ways to live these concepts out in their little lives.
