Spiritual Play

Spiritual Play is a program that aims to help children from ages 3 through 8 to explore their own spirituality. We are inspired by the wonder, awe, and questions that children express, and aim to help nurture these spiritual instincts. If your children get excited about clouds, rainbows, bugs, cats, dogs, old people, and new babies, then this program is for you!

Spirituality in Young Children

“Spirituality is an inner sense of relationship to a higher power that is loving and guiding. The word we give to this higher power might be God, nature, spirit, the universe, the creator or other words that represent a divine presence.”

Lisa Miller, PhD
The Awakened Brain

“Spirituality is God’s ways of being with children and children’s ways of being with God.”

Rebecca Nye
