Teaching Children's Classes

The transformative effect of the spiritual education of children is the major theme explored in Teaching Children's Classes.

  • Grade 2 currently comprises two units: Reflecting on Experience; and Lessons for Children's Classes.
  • Grade 3 currently comprises two units: Conducting Classes for Children in the Third Grade; and Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 3.
  • Grade 4 currently comprises just one unit: Lessons for Children's Classes Grade 4.

In the context of the theme, participants explore such concepts as the value of serving as an educator of children; the inherent nobility and dignity of every human being; the educational process as one that supports realisation of capacity; the importance of supporting children's relationships with and love for God; the importance of coherence between the words and actions of a teacher.

Participants also build capacity to engage with the six elements of a Bahá'í children's class – prayer, memorisation of the Word of God, music, art, stories, and games. Capacity is built in participants to engage with the practical aspects of running a class for children such as, supporting children's capacity to engage with prayer; engaging with discipline and behaviour management; establishing and implementing rules to guide conduct; maintaining records of attendance and progress of each child; and engaging with the family of each child.

Service Outcomes

  • What is a Children's Class?

    Bahá'í Children's Classes are based on the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith. They contribute to the awakening and development of the spiritual nature of children through the development of spiritual attributes or virtues common to all the world's major religions, as well as the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes required to love and serve humanity. Subject to parental approval, Bahá'í Children's Classes are open to and suitable for all children regardless of their cultural or religious background.

Ruhi Institute

Bahá'ís everywhere are engaged in a global process of learning that is helping to build their capacity to apply the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh to the transformation of society. As a contribution to this learning process, the Ruhi Institute carries out action and research in the field, in order to develop programs and materials that enhance the capacity of individuals and communities to serve humanity.

The main sequence of courses is organized so as to set the individual, whether Baha'i or not, on a path being defined by the accumulating experience of the community in its endeavour to open before humanity the vision of Baha'u'llah's World Order.

The very notion of a path is, itself, indicative of the nature and purpose of the courses, for a path invites participation, it beckons to new horizons, it demands effort and movement, it accommodates different paces and strides, it is structured and defined. A path can be experienced and known, not only by one or two but by scores upon scores; it belongs to the community. To walk a path is a concept equally expressive. It requires of the individual volition and choice; it calls for a set of skills and abilities but also elicits certain qualities and attitudes; it necessitates a logical progression but admits, when needed, related lines of exploration; it may seem easy at the outset but becomes more challenging further along. And crucially, one walks the path in the company of others.
