MONTESSORI, PIAGET AND VYGOTSKY! OH MY! How what they did affects what you do!

While these names understandably bring up images of school, textbooks and tests, it is important for us to be familiar with the folks who paved the way.  Why?  Because the main points within the framework supporting Lisa’s philosophy are not new! The importance of play, being outdoors, adults acting as a facilitator, the power of observations, and the importance of controlling the environment are not new concepts.  But we cannot pull strength and credibility from this fact if we don’t know who else said it!  Via an interactive power point, this workshop provides an overview of the key contributions of some of the major players in the history in early childhood education in order to remind audiences that being advocates of play-based programs is not a new idea!
