Play More, Learn More: Join us to discuss the importance of play in early childhood
Please join the Children’s Campaign and our partners from Save the Children Action Network, Clayton Early Learning, Early Childhood Council Leadership Alliance, Trust for Learning, and Raise Colorado on Thursday, April 6 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. to learn about the value of play in early childhood education. Researchers, educators, and advocates will share why and how you can speak up for more play time for Colorado kids.
Play has benefits for people of all ages, but it is particularly important during early childhood. Play time, and unstructured play time in particular, is correlated with improved language skills, problem solving skills, and math skills. It also has the benefit of increasing physical health and alleviating stress. As Colorado embarks on solidifying quality standards for universal preschool, it is critical that the state incorporate standards around developmentally appropriate play-based instruction.
