Play

The importance of play in programs for young children is emphasized throughout the semester.  The students complete extensive reading in the area of play and participate in a workshop that provides concrete experiences with water play, woodworking, unit blocks, and dramatic play. 

This opportunity for exploration is followed by assignments that focus on the learning and developmental opportunities in these kinds of experiences, as well as the aquisition of question-asking skills that support children's cognitive growth.
