My daughter is 17 mo. old now and I would love to take her to a church for Sunday School. I used to go when I was a child and my parents let me stop going when I didnt want to go anymore. I have never followed a religion before but have always believed in certain things. I am completely open to listening about someones views and would never be disrespectful to anyones thoughts/beliefe just because I may not see eye to eye w/ them. My question is which type of church would be best for us? I may not make it every Sunday so I want a church that is okay w/ that and I do not believe that I am ready to completely throw myself into strictly following a religion at this time in my life but again am interested in listening and thinking. Any thoughts would be great thanks :)

My advice would be to call various church offices and ask if they have a children's ministry director, be that a paid or volunteer position. If they do then ask to speak to them, that will tell you a lot about the church and their view of children. Ask some questions, for example, is a child as young as yours going to even have a class...often under two they are just in nursery playing. If they have a class what is a typical class schedule? While children under two can learn simple lessons and do simple art work they don't need heavy highly structured lessons either. How many teachers are in the room. Ideally you want a 1 to 4 ratio. Now that might include helpers such as high school students, but there should be an adult present at all times. They should be willing and able to answer any question you might have.
