- 1Spirit Play is a Montessori method of religious exploration originally based on the work of Jerome Berryman in his work Godly Play, for Episcopal Churches. Spirit Play was adapted for Unitarian Universalists. The curriculum is based in ritual and story, play and creativity. Children are allowed to wonder and ask the existential questions and choose art response afterwards. Just as we all have different responses to a story or a poem, children do too and their artistic endeavors will be different too.

- 3Children are given the opportunity to use their creative and critical thinking skills through art, science,music, and story.
- 4In Spirit Play, classes are multi-age groups.
