What is KinderSpirit Inc.?

KinderSpirit Inc was born out of a question: What if children were introduced to a healthy spiritual or religious life in *their* way? What if, instead of asking them to be quiet and sit still, we encouraged them to sing, dance, and play? What if instead of "seen and not heard", we "follow the child"?

Through the generous support of the American Baptist Home Mission Societies' Co-Creator Incubator, we  created a non-profit focused on creating developmentally appropriate music, movement, and faith focused curricula for young children and their families. 

In addition, our founder, Rachael B. Lawrence, PhD, draws on her many years of experience to offer program evaluation and consulting.
