Description: 

Parents face the daily challenge of making the best decisions for their children’s development both at home and at school. In an era when even our youngest students’ classrooms are driven by standards, many parents question the value of play at school when there is so much to learn in so little time. Parents are also bombarded with a multitude of technology and toy options that leave them wondering what is really best for their children’s creative development outside of school. This exclusive play session will empower participants to advocate for the importance of play in an early childhood classroom and select materials and toys to support children’s imaginations at home. This presentation will specifically address needs of toddlers to first graders, but parents, grandparents and teachers of all ages are invited.
