Developing the moral capacities in our children is of fundamental importance, not only to their own future happiness, but to the service and advancement of our entire society.
Providing spiritual education for children has long been an element of the Bahá’í community, which nurtures the hearts and minds of children, complementing the education they receive at school. The classes aim to inspire in children a love for God and the Founders of all the great religions in the world.
All children are welcome, and no child participates without the approval of his or her parents. These classes aim to help children develop social skills, build friendships, and acquire virtues, through the use of lessons, stories, games, music and the arts.
Bahá’í Writings"O Lord! I am a child; enable me to grow beneath the shadow of Thy loving-kindness. I am a tender plant; cause me to be nurtured through the outpourings of the clouds of Thy bounty. I am a sapling of the garden of love; make me into a fruitful tree." --
