The Catechism can be used for any age by churches, families, or individuals looking to make sure they have the basic foundation of the faith mastered, and it can be used anywhere, making it versatile and applicable for creating intentional conversations in the car, doctor's office, or the many times families fill with silence or empty noise of the radio.
We were blessed to have our Sunday School Superintendent lead the way in creating a complimentary curriculum for Pre-K - 4th grade for our church (something that has also taken years). It will soon be available on sheffieldchapel.org for any donation to our missionaries.
The Table of Contents is as follows (note two things: (1) each section is preceded by a 1-2 page summary of the major concept that integrates the questions into a coherent explanation and overview, (2) each question offers a key verse for Scripture memory as well as cross reference verses for one's own choosing).

Annotated Glossary (i.e. full paragraph explanations) - Unfortunately the key words are not italicized or bolded or
identified in anyway. It might be beneficial to have users of this guide highlight the glossary terms themselves so they
have interaction with the vocabulary words and can further explain the concepts.

A fantastic compliment to this Catechism is to search for "Seeds Family Worship" and then key your memory verse to one of those songs so kids can learn memory by singing, and/or "Songs for Sapplings" has many questions that line up to this as well (though not all).
