Children are very important. Research has taught us that the largest percentage of Christians come to repentance while in primary school. The growth and future of the Christian faith lies with our children.
Auckland Park Theological Seminary (ATS) brought together a group of theologians and educators in 2002 to plan and develop a Sunday School programme. The instruction to the team of writers was to develop a programme that can prepare our children early on to become independent Christians, who know and love the Bible.
The programme is a complete tool for parents, Sunday school teachers and/or teachers who want to mentally develop children in a structured way. It consists of weekly lessons for grade 0 through to grade 7 learners.
The programme ensures that learners are actively involved in the lesson and that the presenter is able to present a stimulating and well-thought-out programme each week.
Victor Kids puts in the hands of every educator a professionally crafted series of lessons, with appropriate ice breakers and creative activities, activity sheets as well as all the graphics needed to present the lesson. Presenter's notes in each lesson provide information to the presenter explaining the rationale for the inclusion of certain activities. All drawings in the book can be coloured in (black and white) and offer extra activities to learners. It also reduces the printing costs for the user.
The complete curriculum is provided digitally (in PDF) and, unlike other Sunday school programmes, no extra workbooks or activity sheets need to be purchased. The material is provider free of charge.
Each life phase consists of two modules. Module 1 is the curriculum for the first half of the school year while Module 2 is presented during the last semester of the year. Each module contains +20 lessons per life phase.
In this module, we look at the account of creation, man's responsibility for what God created and God’s concern for people . There is currently enormous pressure to deny the truth that God is the Creator of all things . The programme aims to prepare our children for this attack in a responsible manner.
Module 1, Life Phase 1 is now available.
In addition to the general Bible knowledge and stories covered by the lessons, other development goals are pursued by Victor Kids. Spread across the four life phases, there are lessons that focus on, among other things:
|Life phase 1||Life phase 2||Life phase 3||Life phase 4|
1 Creation: The first three days
2 Creation: The fourth and fifth days
3 Creation: The sixth and seventh days
4 Responsibility for healthy living
5 The fall of man
6 Noah's ark
7 Stewardship: Water
8 Stewardship: air and the environments

11 Eli's death
12 Samuel anoints Dawid

14 Elijah and the ravens

* The Easter (Passover) and Pentecostal lessons are not numbered because Passover and Pentecost take place on different days every year; this is determined by the state of the moon. So you arrange the lessons in the calendar as it suits your Sunday school programme. Passover, however, should be as close as possible to Passover, preferably before the schools close for the holiday.
