The Nursery uses Logos Inc., a lectionary based curriculum. The structure of the Nursery class begins with the children receiving a prayer in church and then following a procession to the Nursery room. Once children arrive at the Nursery, attendance is recorded and free play commences. Free play is followed by a short worship order developed by the clergy and Nursery staff. The curriculum of telling the Sunday’s Gospel is followed by an activity and snack. When time allows free play resumes. Logos Inc. tells the Gospel in a way that is applicable to experiences of toddlers and the activities are most commonly crafts, dramas, and songs that encourage active hands-on reflection. Nursery children are sent home with a bulletin that tells the Gospel story so that parent(s) may re-read the lesson during the week to reinforce what is taught in the Nursery. The structure of the class, worship time and curriculum are tailored to meet the goals in the Nursery Class. The goals are to teach the skills needed for the children to be ready to enter Holy Innocents Class and participate in church services when they reach 5 years of age and to learn that prayer is a foundation for spiritual health.
