In the fall of 2008, we began a new Montessori-based children's curriculum called Godly Play. It was chosen in part, because of the ease to adapt this approach to teaching a wide age range of children using only one classroom. It is also Biblically based and allows for true hands-on experiential learning. This means it looks nothing like traditional text book learning, which actually is very appealing to children who otherwise spend 5 days a week in a traditional classroom setting. Regular attendance provides the children with the best opportunity of experiencing the transformative power of the biblical stories. After attending these classes regularly, the children will know and love these stories, providing a spiritual influence that they'll be able to draw on for the rest of their lives.  Due to a lack of children, Godly Play in not currently in session.
