When are children the most focused, active, motivated and joyful about learning? When they are at play. During play, children engage their social, emotional, cognitive and physical competencies to pursue their interests. Play fosters confidence, resilience, passion and delight. If we truly want children to be ready for the challenges of the future, we need to let them play. We invite you to join us...

The Play Symposium features presenters that have made important contributions to the understanding of play and its role in development. The program will include a panel discussion with the distinguished speakers.  Those wishing to visit Bing Nursery School are invited to visit the school at the end of the symposium.
