Parent Toddler Course


This ten day online course will prepare catechists who have completed a CGS Level I course to adapt the methodology and content of the 3-6 atrium for toddlers and their parents. Course Leader Davette Himes has been offering a two-hour session for toddlers and parents at All Saints Episcopal Church in Alexandria VA for over ten years and offered the first US Parent Toddler course in July, 2016. Join her to discover how the Toddler Atrium and parent education can be a powerful ministry to families in parishes, as well as evangelization and outreach. The course will concentrate on the spiritual life of the young child, supporting their growth and development and fostering independence through purposeful work, helping parents and parish to live out the baptismal covenant, incorporating CGS in the home, living the church year, and creating a toddler atrium. The course will be presented from Davette’s beautiful toddler environment at All Saints.

This year, two additional in person days in the atrium at All Saints Episcopal in Alexandria, VA, will be available to current or previous course participants. Scroll down for more information.
