If you are Catholic (other christian denominations have adapted this program as well) and you want your child to have the best catechesis available, look into CGS. The basic philosophy is much different from your typical CCD, which automatically assumes that your kid knows nothing, as opposed to the Atrium where Sophia Cavalletti and Gianna Gobbi and Maria Montessori worked with young children enough to understand that even the very young can have a relationship with Christ. This is the difference, also that instead of starting the kids off with Adam and Eve and Noah, CGS begins with Jesus. THE GOOD SHEPHERD! This message is essential for the children. It is truly essential for all of us!
Today in the Atrium my son spent close to an hour making a color coded map of the Holy Land, and my daughter did the Adoration of the Maji work no less than 5 times. By the they were finished, they both had memorized scripture without even realizing it!
