Engaging Bible stories... inspiring role models... fun activities... memory verses... these components appear in every children's Bible curricula today. They are a vital part of DiscipleLand, too.
So what makes DiscipleLand Preschool different? Why is DiscipleLand distinct from other curriculum choices? DiscipleLand resources are indeed fundamentally different.
Is "Undated" and Translation-independent DiscipleLand Preschool gives you maximum flexibility and adapts to your ministry setting.
DiscipleLand Preschool is "undated." Start using it at any time—in a variety of ministry settings. You can select particular Bible passages to study (8 quarters in all), or you can lead children through a four-year overview of the entire Bible!
DiscipleLand Preschool is "translation-independent." Kids and teachers will enjoy using their preferred English-language Bible translation. Carefully crafted Bible summaries maximize the preschoolers' understanding of a passage.
Builds Disciples DiscipleLand was created to make disciples. It is based on a children's discipleship system that helps kids reach their full potential as disciples of Jesus Christ. DiscipleLand Preschool lays a foundation of Bible familiarity that will help kids the rest of their lives. In the Old Testament sequence "Discover God" you will introduce your children to God's greatness and plan. In the New Testament sequence "Discover Jesus" you will guide preschoolers to become Jesus' friends.
Teaches More Bible DiscipleLand Preschool covers the Bible like no other. Other children's curricula contain a serious "overlap" problem—some stories are repeated over and over. DiscipleLand Preschool offers solid, content-based Bible lessons—with no repeats! Every lesson introduces a new Bible story—more than 200 in all!
Saves Money DiscipleLand is the best curriculum value available! Each year, the lessons remain the same. Purchase Teacher Guides and Teaching Pictures once and re-use them year-after-year. Simply replenish the Student Disciple Guides as needed and save extra copies for future use. No need to throw anything away!
Lays a Solid Theological Foundation DiscipleLand comes from Through the Bible Publishers, an established evangelical publishing company that is not affiliated with a denomination. We are sensitive to the doctrinal differences among Christians, so we focus on the core teachings of our Christian faith. Our curriculum appeals to a wide spectrum of churches and schools. For additional information, please see the "We Believe" statement on our website and in our Teacher Guides.
Engages Kids' Interest World-class artists and graphic designers have combined their talents to provide state-of-the-art visuals. Biblical images from a library of over 5,000 Bible paintings give DiscipleLand a unique look that enables preschoolers to see Bible characters in realistic scenes and settings.
DiscipleLand Preschool also features three special children—Dee, Cy, and Paul—who serve as role-model characters in every lesson. Dee is a Caucasian girl; Cy is Asian; Paul is African-American. Put their names together and you have Dee-Cy-Paul (disciple). The little dog that accompanies them is named Chip (DEE-CY-PAUL-CHIP = discipleship). DiscipleLand's multi-cultural emphasis is deliberate. Children learn that Jesus loves and saves children all over the world, from every race and nation.
Applies Bible Truths Every DiscipleLand Preschool lesson includes a modern-day application story featuring Dee, Cy, Paul, and Chip. These stories put the Bible truths in terms that kids can relate to, strengthening their hold on biblical principles. Every story is also presented as an exciting and fun puppet script—engaging preschoolers at a whole new level!
