Parent Toddler Course

A course to prepare catechists to serve toddlers and their parents.
led by Davette Himes

This five day course will prepare catechists who have completed a 3-6 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 several years and offered the first US 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 meet in Davette's beautiful toddler environment at All Saints.
