In many European countries, formal learning does not begin until age six or seven. Before then the focus is on making friends, creativity, and exploring the great outdoors. Join Jill and Judy in this session as they talk about the value of play for laying a solid foundation for later learning, and why running and jumping may be more valuable than workbooks and coloring.
