  2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Empowering Parents as Partners in their Children's Play - For EarlyON Staff - Presented by ECCDC

Play - what is it? What do children learn through play? What is involved in play? Structured versus unstructured. So many theories and ideas are floating around about play and its role in children’s lives. Play is a right of every child and all children need time and space for free play every day. What does that look like in our EarlyON programs? How do we engage parents in the conversation about the intentionality behind play? We will have an opportunity to engage in conversation and reflect on different theories as well as messaging through our documentation for families.
