Cradleroll Sabbath School Program

For Children from Birth - 3rd Birthday

The Cradleroll Program is designed for parents and children to experience that Sabbath School program together.  It is a one hour program that is broken down in the following manner:

  • Opening Program          20 minutes (This program never changes)
  • Lesson                          15 minutes (Most lessons are taught for 2 consecutive Sabbaths)
  • Theme Program             20 minutes (Changes quarterly and focuses on the seasons)
  • Closing                          5 minutes   (This program never changes)

Children at this age love repitition.  The recommended age for beginning the Sabbath School program is between 6 weeks and 3 months.  Children absorb an incredible amount before they have the ability to respond. While they may not have motor skills to do everything in the beginning, they will pick up things quickly.  Encourage the parents to start bringing the little ones early, so they do not neglect the  early years of religious education.  Please use the links to the right of this page to access the program materials.  After you have reviewed the program, feel free to print any of the files you need.  You will find pdf files availalbe in the "Cradleroll Printable Files" section,


The work of education and training should commence with the babyhood of the child; for then the mind is the most impressible, and the lessons given are remembered.
