Translating Play-Based Learning for Families

ITEM #: 4452511


Every early childhood educator knows how much play happens in one day. Young minds are playing with science, engineering, literacy, acrobatics, social dynamics, and more.

How can your team clearly communicate with families the many concepts and skills children are building through everyday play? Using this training, you and your team will explore and practice the features of high-quality documentation as a tool to strengthen family engagement and deepen families’ understanding of the link between play and learning.

This Out of the Box Training is based on the Exchange magazine article: “So Much More than ‘Nothing’: Translating Play-Based Learning for Our Families,” by Holly Delgado.

Target Audience: Beginning and intermediate caregivers and educators who are working with young children (birth through 8 years).
