The Atrium reinforces the deep bond between God and the child which produces in the child the desire to draw nearer to God. In the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd we provide a sacred space called an Atrium where children explore the wonder of God and develop a personal relationship with God.The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a process of Christian faith formation for children aged 3 to 12 years, where the children can form an authentic relationship with God that will last a lifetime.
The Catechesis is ground in scriptural, liturgical and prayerful study framed by Maria Montessori’s principles and philosophy of education. This process allows the children to hear the Gospel through the use of sensorial materials. The children are free to work with these materials that represent essential moments of the Christian message.
