What is Godly Play?
Godly Play is one of several variations of the Montessori tradition of religious education. Using wondering questions and open-ended response time , it encourages children to move into larger dimensions of belief and faith. It aims to develop a deeper understanding of stories, symbols and rites as a way of preparing children to join in the worship and life of their faith community.
