Learning through Play and True Toys

With the excitement of the holidays approaching, it ultimately means there will be a lot of holiday shopping happening soon (if you haven't started already!). But with so much information out there - and so many toys to buy - what should the savvy parent do?

We'll begin by discussing the concept of learning though play and what that means for early childhood education, with our guests Susan Magsamen, founder of Curiosityville and member of The Goddard School's Education Advisory Board and Pam Henningson, trainer for Parents as Teachers Next. During our second segment, we'll switch the conversation to ‘true toys' and The Goddard School's annual Toy Test.
