Bahá’ís see the young as the most precious treasure a community can possess. In them are the promise and guarantee of the future. Bahá’i children’s classes are currently held at the neighbourhood level in countries around the world. They are valued by different Faith communities who wish to empower children to contribute to the creation of a peaceful world through exploration of the human family, diversity, equality, consultation, unity and love of the same God.  The classes aim to help children acquire spiritual qualities such as love, truthfulness and generosity.  Parents are invited to participate in any class activity:  songs, art, stories, cooperative games, music and prayer and to join teachers in an introduction session prior to the start of classes.  Please see this online link for further details  https://www.bahai.org/action/family-life-children/childrens-classes or Google: baha’i children’s classes.
