Nursery Curriculum

One participant at my recent Yes You Can! seminar asked if I could recommend curriculum for the nursery and toddler level child. Here are several curriculum recommendations:

Standard carries curriculum for toddlers as part of their HeartShaper curriculum. Check Standard's website for other nursery level books.

First Look is a web-based curriculum for nursery through 5 year olds.

 Baby Beginnings from GospelLight

Play and Worship from Group Publishing

I love Gospel Light's slogan for their nursery material: "It's never too early to teach children about Jesus."  Research has shown that the first five years of a child's life are the most formative: emotionally, socially, spiritually and intellectual. We don't have to see the church nursery as merely a babysitting service.  Let's make every moment a teachable moment - even in our church nurseries.
