1. What age groups are available?
Preschool (Ages 4-6)
Primary (Grades 1-3)
Junior (Grades 4-6)
Senior (Grades 7-9)
2. Are the books dated?
No. Every three years the cycle will be repeated, so once a church has bought the full cycle, they can reuse them as they wish.
3. If the cycle repeats itself every three years, doesn’t that mean children repeat lessons?
No. A child spends three years in one age group, for e.g. Primary. When the child moves up to Grade 4, they move up to the Junior age group. Therefore the Primary age group can start the cycle again.
4. How many years of lessons are there?
With four age groups each following a three year cycle, it means that there are 12 year’s worth of lessons.
A child will go through the important stories and themes of the Bible four times by the time they leave Grade 9.
5. Do all age groups do the same lesson or theme?
No. We believe that children of different ages have different needs and abilities, and therefore need to be met at their level. While somes age groups may follow similar themes, the lessons are not based on the same text.

No. This is not reproducible. You must buy one book per teacher.
