Loose Parts are coming to NAEYC this Fall 2015! Miriam and Lisa are excited to be presenting at the national conference and sharing how the value of Loose Parts engages children in the wonder of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math.
The importance of preparing children for the future in regards to S.T.E.A.M. is a national interest with which all early childhood professionals are concerned. In today's educational climate, when testing is a concern in early childhood education, it is important to make visible how children learn as they play.
