"Children are the most precious treasure a community can possess, for in them are the promise and guarantee of the future." - Baha'i Writings

"O Thou kind Lord! These lovely children are the handiwork of the fingers of Thy might and the wondrous signs of Thy greatness.

O God! Protect these children, graciously assist them to be educated and enable them to render service to the world of humanity.

O God! These children are pearls, cause them to be nurtured within the shell of Thy loving-kindness.

Thou art the Bountiful, the All-Loving." - 'Abdú'l-Bahá

Our Children's Classes

* You are warmly invited to bring your children (ages 4-7 and ages 8-10) and junior youth (ages 10-14) to our regularly held children's classes, and junior youth gatherings in our area. These classes are based on virtues, moral principles, religious history and addressing in a positive way the challenges of the world, and taught by teachers of good character and suitable experience.

Also, here is a good link to the educative programs and materials used by the Baha'i community world-wide, whether for junior youth, children, youth, or adults: http://www.ruhi.org/materials/list.php#

Recently, Linda Popov and Janine Fernandez-Hayden, from Salt Spring Island, presented a workshop in Brentwood Bay on "Raising Kind Kids" which was well-attended by many young mothers and teachers who enthusiastically embraced the language of virtues and the strategies shared to bring them out in our children.

Linda Kavelin Popov is a psychotherapist, author, and co-Founder of The Virtues Project, an initiative to inspire the practice of virtues in everyday life. The Project was honored by the United Nations as a model global program for all cultures. Linda is the author of the international best seller The Family Virtues Guide, (Penguin 1997) and The Virtues Project Educatorís Guide.
