is used by diverse denominationsGodly Play
is a Montessori based curriculum that uses a multi-sensory approach to telling Bible stories with three-dimensional materials – wooden figures, fabric, blocks, sand. The goal of Godly Play
is to help children to use religious language to know God and find direction in their lives while they are still young. The Godly Play
classroom is a place for children to be themselves; to come closer to the mystery of God’s presence; to learn the language of Christian people; to form community and take care of one another. Sacred stories, parables, symbols, and liturgical actions are invitations to enter into the work of discovering God. Godly Play
was developed and has been classroom tested since 1972 by Episcopal priest, author, and teacher Jerome W. Berryman.
