Content Covered

Many people are uninformed as to what constitutes a body safety education program and fear that such a program would discuss sex and sexual abuse with their children. This is not the case. Where young children are concerned, body safety programs should be age-appropriate, non-threatening, and aim to teach children these essential points:

Key Learning

- Your body is your body, and no one else has the right to touch it, especially your private areas (those covered by a bathing suit)

- If someone does touch you inappropriately, you must tell a trusted adult and keep telling until you are believed

- Be able to identify the difference between safe and unsafe touch

- Understand what the words ‘respect’ and ‘consent’ mean

- Know what actions you can take if you feel worried or unsafe

Intended Audience

Individuals with direct contact with children

Godly Play is a Montessori method of telling Bible stories, developed by Jerome Berryman, using parables, sacred stories and liturgical lessons about religious traditions using tactile natural materials.

Godly Play is used extensively with adults and children in many settings, from schools, hospitals, churches, and aged care facilities.

Godly Play can prepare children to join their congregations' worship life as they experience sacred stories, symbols and rites and encounter the religious language associated with worship within the context of our faith tradition.

Intended Audience

Educators and those who want a deeper understanding of the Godly Play experience
