This virtual event, hosted by Early Learning Investigations Webinar and early childhood expert, Mike Huber, will help educators ensure that all children are able to engage in play and find a sense of belonging in the classroom community.
Play is the heart of early childhood programs– and it’s our job, as educators, to offer environments and opportunities for healthy play. To ensure that everyone is welcome, we need to address physical, informational, attitudinal, and cultural barriers that may prevent some children from playing.
Join in this event to…
shift your focus for children from the idea of independence to autonomy
identify physical, informational, attitudinal, and cultural barriers in the play environment
plan to create environments where all children feel challenged and supported
implement strategies to remove barriers and facilitate play for all children.
