The young child has a different relationship to the environment… he absorbs it. The things the toddler sees are not just remembered, they form part of his soul. – Adapted from Maria Montessori

LITTLE LAMBS ATRIUM – We believe there is a deep bond between God and the youngest child which produces in the child the desire to draw nearer to God. As parents and catechists, our job is to nurture that relationship. Little Lambs Atrium, therefore, is a prepared environment in which the youngest child’s spiritual life is fed by prayer (listening to God’s Word in scripture), work (using beautiful hands-on materials to experience God’s gifts), and celebration (praising God through song and sacred movement).

In this special space, both parent and child can build a stronger relationship with our God who declares that each of us is a beloved child of our Divine parent.
