A practical book for children's ministries
The first years of a child's life are critical. During this pivotal time children have a powerful curiosity and exuberance for learning, and make strong connections through their experiences. This is also when a child's attitudes, values, and perceptions are formed: Do I belong here? Am I good enough?


In recent years, education researchers have developed a much deeper understanding of how children learn.

How to create a child-friendly church environment that takes proper account of the way children learn and perceive. The first years are critical, a pivotal time when children have powerful curiosity, exuberance for learning, and make strong connections through their experiences. This is also when a child's attitudes, values and perceptions are formed: "Do I belong here?", "Am I good enough?" Our grasp of how children learn has developed sharply in recent years. Nurseries and schools constantly review their approach, but churches frequently employ antiquated practices. Many alienate children because our methods don't meet their needs, and because we don't realise that some of the strongest messages are hidden. We are inoculating our children against church. The intention is to challenge churches about their children's work; to inform children's workers about the latest research; and to provide practical ideas. The authors suggest ways of providing relevant experiences and developing children's creativity, so that children's encounters with church is positive and enriching.
