Family Experiences

Central has partnered with Ministry 2 Parents to provide our families with Family Experiences.  These focus on age-appropriate moments that parents can use to build faith into their kids lives.  Each experience includes a Kickstarter, Parent’s Guide, and a Developmental Guide.

Kindergarten

Children in kindergarten are fairly self-sufficient. They are beginning the phase of independence. Whether your child is at half-day or all-day kindergarten or is home-schooled, they are going to be spending some amount of time away from you for the first time. This can be both scary and exciting for parents. But rest assured–your child is ready for this change.

1st Grade

1st graders are stepping into their “Big Kid” years. There can be insecurity for children during this transition. This year kids are spending a good deal of their time away from you, which can be a little scary for everyone involved. However, they are developmentally ready for this shift toward independence.

2nd Grade

The biggest developmental jump in the life of a 2nd grader is in the area of social development. Kids are beginning to develop significant friendships and recognize the needs and feelings of others. Another big milestone is in the area of reading. This year children will read more independently than they have in any of the previous years.
