As crazy as our world seems right now, we need to put our children first. We need to remember that children want and need the same things they’ve always wanted. They want to be loved, they want to feel safe, and they want to play and have fun!

Join Dr. Jean and Carolyn Kisloski and discover how to TEACH the WHOLE child with hands-on activities, games, centers, and PLAY! This edWebinar will be of interest to all educators interested in early childhood education including teachers, librarians, childcare providers and administrators, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
