The transformative effect of the spiritual education of children is the major theme explored in Teaching Children's Classes. The programme currently consists of 4 courses, each of which covers one grade. This book covers grade 1 only.

  • Grade 1 [this book] comprises three units: Principles of Bahá'í Education; Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 1; and Conducting Classes for Children.
  • Grade 2 currently comprises two units: Reflecting on Experience; and Lessons for Children's Classes.
  • Grade 3 currently comprises two units: Conducting Classes for Children in the Third Grade; and Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 3.
  • Grade 4 currently comprises just one unit: Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 4.

In the context of the theme, participants explore such concepts as the value of serving as an educator of children; the inherent nobility and dignity of every human being; the educational process as one that supports realisation of capacity; the importance of supporting children's relationships with and love for God; the importance of coherence between the words and actions of a teacher.

Participants also build capacity to engage with six elements of a children's class – prayer, memorisation of the Word of God, music, art, stories, and games. Capacity is built in participants to engage with the practical aspects of running a class for children such as supporting children's capacity to engage with prayer; engaging with discipline and behaviour management; establishing and implementing rules to guide conduct; maintaining records of attendance and progress of each child; and engaging with the family of each child.

  • What is a Study Circle?

    Over the past few decades, the worldwide Bahá'í community has developed an educational programme that seeks to cultivate the vast and powerful potentialities inherent in every human being. Guided by the principle and goal of universal participation, this educational programme combines personal reflection and group study with acts of service in the community. For more information, see here .

  • What is a Children's Class?

    Bahá'í Children's Classes, generally for those aged 5 to 11, are based on the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith. They contribute to the awakening and nurturing of the spiritual nature of children through the development of spiritual attributes (or virtues common to all the world's major religions), as well as the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes required to love and serve humanity. Subject to parental approval, Bahá'í Children's Classes are open to and suitable for all children regardless of their cultural or religious background.
