What is my preschooler learning?

This month, we’re introducing preschoolers to the truth that God is always with them. When they’re in the car, He’s there. When they’re at home, He’s there. When they go to preschool, He’s there. When they are making wise choices, He’s there. When they’re making not-so-wise choices, He’s there. He is ALWAYS with us. Always.

As we unpack the stories of Deborah, Ruth, Naomi and Boaz, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and Daniel, we will show our preschoolers various situations where God was right there helping the entire time. Because they can’t see God with their eyes, it is harder for preschoolers (and many adults) to understand that He’s there with us every minute of every day. By learning and investigating these stories from the past, we hope to show them that God is with us even though we can’t see Him.

Antioch Kids: Preschool

Are you wondering what your preschooler and toddler are learning on Sunday mornings in September? All month long, your child will be learning that “God loves me.”

Why does He love me”, they ask?

The answer is simple. “Because God made me!”

Week 1: The month began with us talking about creation. This lesson emphasized that God made each and every one of us.

Week 2: We will talk about the story of the lost sheep to show how much God loves us. He loves us so much that He will always search for us!

Week 3: Then we will talk about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and learn that not only does God love us, but He will help us.

Week 4: Finally, we will learn that Jesus is our good friend, as seen in the story when Jesus calms the storm.

Week 5: A fun review of all 4 stories we have learned this month!

Below, you will find a great tool which recommends using Bath Time as a teaching time, designed to help your child remember what they are learning on Sunday mornings!

We added a fun station to your preschooler’s Sunday morning experience. After story time, your preschooler is invited to a fun worship experience! We’d think this is one of the coolest things that happens on Sunday mornings. There is nothing as joyful as 40 preschoolers singing to God and telling Him how much they love Him! We’d love for you to check it out, too.

We are praying that you and your preschooler enjoy Sunday mornings! Let us know if there is anything we can do to help!

See you Sunday!
