February 9: Purpose of Play
Play is a child’s work! Children need quality play experiences in early childhood to help them learn and develop. The Purpose of Play will help parents and caregivers discover why play-based education for young children is so critical to their social, emotional, language, cognitive and physical development. This workshop will help participants learn about why play matters, discuss why children today are not having play based experiences at home, examine the value of outdoor, sensory and pretend play experiences, learn about the skills are learned through play and learn strategies to support play experiences for young children.
Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the joys, challenges and concerns of parenting.
