So, you’re in the Nursery. What difference can you make?
“Let the little children come to me.” — Didn’t Jesus know that toddlers are the “terrible two’s” and “horrible three’s?”
Those are the titles of two articles in the Early Childhood Age Level Characteristics Resource, along with age level characteristics and their implications for teachers.
Very short attention spans? Limited vocabulary? — Yes.
Ability to learn? — Absolutely.
These precious little ones are actively learning whether or not they are intentionally being taught. Why not make the time they are in your midst purposeful in pointing them to our wonderful Lord rather than merely babysitting them while parents are in their own classes or worship? The key is to make sure infant and toddler workers structure in keeping with developmental abilities.
