FAITH & PLAY™ is a Montessori-inspired curriculum to help children find words and images for expressing the experiences of holy mystery and wonder. Play is children’s practice, hence the name Faith & Play, deriving from Faith and Practice.
Faith & Play includes stories of Quaker faith, practice and witness, told in the manner of Godly Play®. Godly Play and Faith & Play acknowledge that God is active in children’s lives long before they enter the religious education classroom, and at the core of this method is a deep respect for children’s spiritual lives. Participants hear and respond to the stories in age appropriate ways, making the method ideal for meetings with grade-level classrooms as well as for small meetings with few children at diverse developmental stages.
Faith & Play was created by Friends as a Quaker supplement to Godly Play and is intended for the teacher trained in the Godly Play method. Trainings are available for Friends through the Faith & Play Group, firstname.lastname@example.org.
