kidSPIRIT is our innovative and engaging program for children in preschool through Grade five. When we meet each Sunday morning, we explore positive values and tools for living well together. Some of these positive spiritual values include kindness, compassion, love, the attributes of good friendships – to name just a few. Infused with everything we do is a respect for our diversity, an honouring of our children’s developing spirits and honouring that we are all connected and valuable. Led by staff and committed volunteers, we provide both a multi-age large-group experience where children have an opportunity to learn from older children, help younger children and respect one another’s journeys. Likewise, each morning includes time when children engage, play and learn in small groups with others their age, all led by capable mentoring adults in a safe environment.
Value Oriented Kids programWe are rooted in our spiritual tradition, yet like all of our learning adventures, we seek the wisdom of other cultures, other faiths, and diverse writers and teachers.
This is all part of sharing a value-oriented and life-giving spiritual experience with our children. Sharing a story, a drama, or an interactive experience, participating in games and activities, creating interesting snacks and art projects, experiencing both active engagement and quiet experiences of the spiritual life are all a part of our Sunday experiences with our children.kidSPIRIT is about offering to children something that illuminates the world, our spirits and our lives in positive ways.
