Strengthening Spiritual Aspirations
Blessed is the spot, and the house, and the place, and the city, and the heart, and the mountain, and the refuge, and the cave, and the valley, and the land, and the sea, and the island, and the meadow where mention of God hath been made, and His praise glorified.
— Prayer by Baha’u’llah
These classes are open to the public, and are attended by children of all backgrounds and beliefs, of all races and cultures, without obligation. They are facilitated by trained volunteers. There are no fees, and no donations are solicited or accepted. All our programs are offered as a gift from the Baha'is of Oak Bay.
Bahá’í spiritual education for children is intended to nurture spiritually vibrant and healthy young people who will grow up without prejudice and with a positive, powerful sense that they are important to God and have a role to play in serving humanity. In communities around the world, Bahá’ís are developing neighborhood children’s classes to help foster this spiritual development of children.

What distinguishes Bahá’í-sponsored neighborhood children’s classes from current educational practices?
Bahá’í teachers believe in the nobility of every student, that each one is “a mine rich in gems of inestimable value”. They study the nature of spiritual qualities and develop knowledge of human talents and capacities so they can help their students discover these gems in themselves and actively polish them.
Children's classes are offered in Oak Bay continuously as demand requires.
