GODLY PLAY (Ages 3-5)
Godly Play is a program that incorporates a sensorimotor style of storytelling of the Bible. In this way, the wonder of God is experienced, not just taught. Children observe a Bible story being demonstrated and apply it on a deeper level by continually working with the story figures and art materials. Deeper learning occurs when the children retell the story.
