At West Toronto Baptist we seek to ground our children in the gospel through bible-centered programs in a fun and safe age-approraite environment. During each service our children's programs are run by qualified and police-checked volunteers and staff.
Junior Sunday school
Jr Sunday School takes place every week during the sermon for children from junior kindergarten to grade 1.
Our Gospel Story for Kids curriculum is a unique, three-year program that helps ground children in the gospel story from Genesis to Revelation. Children who began this program at age three will have learned and absorbed the gospel story from Genesis to Revelation three complete times. At each age level children are taught the gospel through age-appropriate illustrations, activities, coloring pages, object lessons, and memorization using the Gospel Story Sunday school curriculum, an illustrated children’s storybook Bible.
Senior Sunday school
Our Senior Sunday school class meets every other week during the sermon for children from grade 2 to grade 5. During the weeks when the class does not meet our children sit the sermon with their parents.
The class focuses on learning about theological truths through "The Ology" curiculliam by Marty Machowski. This book explains over 70 theological terms and ideas in age-appropriate language, supported by Scripture.
Our goal for this class is to guide our children as they begin to listen to sermons in church. We want to give them good tools, such as taking notes, building vocabulary, and an understanding of why we believe what we believe. All this will happen in an age-appropriate and fun environment as we intentionally shepherd our children in this area.
Our preschool class seeks to give our kids a foundational understanding of Christ's redemptive power and love. The Jesus Storybook Bible highlights how each part of the Bible is one aspect of God's larger plan, ultimately leading to salvation in Jesus.
Children in this class will participate an interactive story time with hands-on activities, as well as simple Bible Memory, to help them grasp the message of the Bible at a young age. We will be tracing major Biblical stories through the Old and New Testaments, making simple "Christ-connections" along the way.
During each service a nursery for children 0-2 is provided by qualified and police-checked female adults. There is a comfortable room with a live stream video of the service for nursing mothers for use it at any time, who are also welcome to stay in the service with their babies.
