Welcome to The Bhakti Center’s Sunday School! Celebrating Srila Prabhupada’s recognition of children as the seeds of greatness, The Bhakti Center is proud to offer Vedic educational programming that waters the devotion, values, and creative intelligence that is deep-rooted within all children. While integrating Vedic wisdom across modern academic disciplines, we use play, inquiry and project-based learning to safeguard the inherent nature of learning: students are taught how to be active and aware participants in their growth process, honoring the innate nature and identity of every child. Real-world and lively explorations of Bhakti Yoga draw upon their natural sense of wonder, deepen their knowledge of self and  nurture the social, emotional, and academic growths developmentally appropriate for every age group.

Rooted in the Eastern sciences, our soul-conscious and socially minded curriculum fosters the higher thinking and compassion students need to become active team-players and leaders in life. Students become empowered to learn about their own potential, put important values into practice, and develop the eyes to see themselves and their peers as stewards of our social, ecological and spiritual health.
