The Cubbies program for preschoolers is founded on the idea that children can and should receive spiritual development. The Cubbies program reaches children for Jesus Christ through games, puppets, crafts and awards. Also, Cubbies are lead through a simple brochure that gives them and their parents a brief preview of the program which directs them to God’s plan of salvation. Furthermore, Cubbies learn more about Jesus Christ through handbook time which is written in a style that is appealing and interesting to preschoolers. All material is age level appropriate for 3 and 4 year olds.
