Open to all. At this conference you will have an opportunity to learn how play impacts a child’s ability to learn, think and engage with the world. Play, movement and thought are intertwined and influence each other in an endless and fascinating loop. This conference will feature not only the formidable observations and research of Dr. Emmi Pikler and her colleagues, much of which has not been available in English until now, but also current research and practice that highlights the importance of play in babies’ and toddlers’ growth and development. We invite you to join us as world-renowned experts delve deep into the topic of play and cognition!
