The atrium (or prepared environment) is one of the important elements that helps the relationship between God and the child to flourish.  After a theme has been presented, the child is free to choose an activity that will make possible the inner dialogue with the “Interior Teacher.”

  • A retreat-like environment facilitating reflection and stillness
  • A place for religious life of community  and worship – not a classroom for instruction
  • A place for meaningful work through which the child can have a conversation with God
