How to Get the Most Out of How to Encourage Play in Early Childhood

We’re here to get results and we know you are too. Here’s the best way for each of us to get there:

Be supportive. Encourage and support your fellow students. No one here is looking for your criticism, cynicism, advice, or judgement. (We can get those things on the rest of the Internet).

Share generously. Your stories and experiences may be exactly what another student needs to hear today to solve a problem or seize an opportunity.

Be constructive. We’re here to push each other forward and lift each other up. Find ways to help each other think bigger, reframe challenges, and stay curious.

Don’t spam, promote, or troll.  This course exists to help you learn. It’s not a place to spam, promote, or bully anyone else.
