Bing Nursery School/Bing Institute Play Symposium
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...
