PALS session: Play is the Work of a Child
Time: 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm
Location: Virtual

Young children learn best through play. All children have play interests and preferences. Great play materials are often right under our noses! Come to this session to learn how to facilitate play in ways that are easy to fit into your daily routine. With the holiday season approaching, you may even find some ideas for what your child would enjoy as a gift—either homemade or something available commercially. Play helps to relieve stress and build brains—and that goes for all ages!

The link to register was sent directly to all current PALS families or contact your school for more information.

The EIPS Early Learning team has planned several upcoming sessions for current PALS families to help children build on the skills they’re learning in our PALS classrooms and offer some fun activities you can participate in with your child.
