Child Development Starter Course

Learn key information in this new course about the way children grow and develop, and discover how to apply this to your ministry context!

If you have worked with children at all, you’ll know that each one is unique in their abilities and interests. A two year enjoys different things and learns differently than a 12 year old. So let’s explore why that is! We’ll look at what makes each age group unique, what they are looking to discover and how we can relate, engage and serve them best. You’ll learn from Dawn Rundman who was formerly a college professor, she’s now a publishing professional and has authored three children's books. Her most recent book is “Little Steps, Big Faith: How the Science of Early Childhood Development Can Help You Grow Your Child’s Faith.” She lives in Edina, Minnesota with her husband and two kids.
