Navigating the Changes in the Nursery Curriculum

Children Desiring God Blog // Navigating the Changes in the Nursery Curriculum

There are some wonderful updates in the newly revised A Sure Foundation nursery curriculum, but some of our customers have had questions about what to order from among the various resources offered. See this blog post for specific information on how we have refreshed and expanded our nursery curriculum.

Some of our customers have asked what they should order to add to their current resources. Many appreciate the new format (with thumbnails of visuals and actions clearly marked in each lesson) and choose to replace their original leader’s editions with the updated Teacher’s Guides. Others decide to continue using the original leader’s editions and just want to add the new material. We have created a “Nursery Coordinator’s Volume 2 Supplement” to make this an easier option. The Nursery Coordinator’s Volume 2 Supplement contains:

  • 1 Older Toddler Volume 2 Teacher’s Guide (with the 16 additional lessons)
  • 1 Nursery Coordinator’s Brochure
  • 1 updated Curriculum Resources DVD, including the following PDFs:
    • Coloring Pages
    • Growing in Faith Together: Parent and Child Resource Pages
    • The Resource Packet
    • Truth Statement Posters
    • Story Pictures (for Young Toddler, and both Older Toddler Volumes 1 and 2)
    • The curriculum logo
    • A training video
    • Other teaching materials

The new 16 lessons in the Older Toddler Volume 2 can be used in a variety of ways. It was designed for toddlers 36 months and older who have not yet graduated to a preschool class. If you do not have a separate older toddler classroom, or do not need additional lessons for your Sunday nurseries, Volume 2 can be used for older toddlers as a midweek curriculum, for childcare during a women’s Bible study or small group time, or during VBS.

Another new item is the “Starter Kit” for those just beginning to use our nursery curriculum. This is a great option for those who want to use each of the refreshed Teacher’s Guides and the new visuals on the Resources DVD, and for those who prefer curriculum using the English Standard Version (ESV) translation of the Bible.

As always, if you need help deciding what to order, please contact our customer service team at 1.877.400.1414 or info@childrendesiringGod.org. Also, you should know that some past purchases may qualify for discounts, so please ask us about these options.
