Our Curriculum

 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness 

(Luke 15:8-10 )

Preschool

Preschool is the beginning years of education about the Orthodox faith. The curriculum this year is focused mainly on the foundations that our children need in their faith. It is our goal to teach them how to properly make and identify the sign of the cross, properly pick out the icon of Jesus, Receive communion correctly, light a candle, kiss the icon in church and recite a prayer of thanks to Jesus. The curriculum also includes things such as being grateful, kind and helping others. The curriculum also focuses on the main idea that each child is special and loved by God.

Kindergarten

Our goal for kindergarten children is to experience joy; not only through family and school activities, but also through worship and church life. We have chosen aspects of worship and stories from scriptures that are examples of joy centered on Christ. The kindergarten child learns to celebrate the joy of God’s love and begins to feel a sense of trust and well-being in his emerging relationship with God. We will be using Happy with God, the kindergarten textbook of the “Living Our Orthodox Faith” we want to show the children that God’s love is our greatest source of happiness.

Communal and Individual Prayer

At the centre of worship and belief is the Eucharist surrounded by the Divine Offices or the Cycle of Prayer. These prayers are sung particularly at Sunset and Dawn and at certain other times during the day and night.

Personal prayer plays an important part in the life of an Orthodox Christian. For many Orthodox Christians an important form of prayer is the Jesus Prayer. This is a sentence which is repeated many times; for example: "Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner." The aim of this repetition is to enable the person to concentrate solely on God.

  • Teachers will explain the importance of both types of prayers.
