Jr. Kindergarten & Kindergarten
This is a great age for kids to understand how much God loves them and learn about how to love others in return. Through an interactive Bible story and application activities that re-inforce the Bible lesson, the Jr. Kindergartners and kindergartners learn what it means to be more like Jesus.
Platt Park Church uses a curriculum called the “Orange” curriculum in our toddler, preschool and Kindergarten classrooms.
The Orange Curriculum is shared strategy for churches and families to influence the hearts of their children together. We blend the yellow light of Christ through the Church and the red love of families to make a bolder, stronger, and greater impact than either one of the influences alone.
We teach a bottom line for the month that comes from one of the three basic truths kids use as the foundation of their faith:
- God made me.
- God loves me.
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
