Regular children’s classes are held in Bahá’í communities across Canada. Open to all, these classes provide children with spiritual and moral education, stories and friendship, games and art activities, in an environment designed to develop their capacities and interests.
Children are introduced to moral principles as well as the lives of humanity’s foremost spiritual Teachers: Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Christ, Muhammad, the Báb, and Bahá’u’lláh. Avoiding a sectarian or rigid approach, the classes aim to awaken in children an understanding and love of those universal spiritual principles and moral teachings that have served to uplift humanity throughout the ages. These teachings, drawn in large part from the Bahá’í writings, convey a love of the arts, the utmost respect for science, and a moderate and wise focus on moral and spiritual education. Bahá’í children’s classes aspire to impart in children a love of humanity, in all its diversity, and a love of knowledge, both material or spiritual.
For Bahá’ís, moral education that focuses on the development of moral capacities in the child is fundamental to human happiness and allows those capacities for genuine and authentic human cooperation and citizenship to emerge in our children.
