Upgrade to iChild Gold Membership to access all our Gold resources & features:
Gold resources: NEW Signs & Posters section
We have developed the signs and posters that many of you asked for in both colour and black and white. You can also create a simple logo to personalise the sign with your name or a child's name, or upload your current logo if you prefer. These posters are available if you upgrade to Gold Membership, but you can have a free trial with the "Eat 5 a day" poster! View the Signs & Posters section here
Gold resources: NEW Religious Festival Stories
Another popular request was to expand our religious festival resources to allow you to teach different festivals to young children.
Our religious activities have been written by Pat Alden, a religious teacher for over 35 years, and an ordained priest.
Each story is set out as a ‘picture board’ so the story can be told in the simplest way, whilst keeping the attention of the child. Each story has supporting activity ideas and many festivals have supporting resources. We have loaded resources up to the September festivals and we will be adding many more over the coming months. View the Religious Festival section here
. You can download the Dharma Day story for free!
NEW iChild Calendar
Free to use, you can plan your children's activities for the week or month ahead with the new iChild Calendar!
We feature many events, festivals and occasions each month on iChild. Simply click on a listed event to access the corresponding activities, worksheets and resources. By upgrading to iChild Gold Membership you will be able to access all resources from the Calendar. View the iChild Calendar here

Gold resources: NEW Photo Posters section
Many of you also wanted the ability to use high quality photography to create your own personalised signs and posters.
We have therefore created a Photo Poster section for Gold Members. You can write a heading above the photo and a text description under the image, on each poster, before printing them out. You can even customise these with your name or logo before you download them.
These are also great for creating themed invitations. Try out the African Animals poster for free! We will be producing many more each month and what we produce will be based again on your requests! View the new Photo Poster Section here
