The Bible Society for the Netherlands and Flanders has developed a Sunday School method: Bible Basics. Its stories allow the children to get to know the breadth and wealth of the Bible.
The unique thing about Bible Basics is that this method prioritizes both the Bible and the child. Bible Basics stays close to the original Bible stories, and offers additional information with the stories and with the time and setting of the Bible. This makes it possible for the stories themselves to speak to the children. It is suited for both small and large groups, and offers a range of elements like discussion questions and all sorts of learning activities.
Bible Basics is free, and available in both Dutch and English.
