Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Faith & Play

Religious Education

Faith & PlayTM, created by Friends (Quakers), is a Montessori-inspired resource that helps children find words and images for expressing their experiences of holy mystery and wonder in their lives.

This powerful way of being with children can transform not only your First Day School or Friends’ school classroom, but your own life. Learn and practice skills to help children explore the existential limits of their lives through wonder, play, and core stories from the Bible and Quaker faith and practice, scripted and tested to work well with multiage groups of children. Certified trainers will model the stories, and you will have an opportunity to practice them with your peers.


Faith & PlayTM is a joint project of Friends General Conference (FGC) and the Faith & Play Working Group of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (PYM)
