Valley of the Sun Celebrates the Work of DEY

Defending the Early Years – DEY.org – has steadfastly defended the central importance of playful learning. We are grateful to their contribution to our movement as educators to change the focus away from standardized assessment practices to really seeing the child. We speak of DIVERSITY, we speak of SOCIAL JUSTICE, yet we treat children as if they are all the same. The beauty and delight of being with children is discovering the world through their eyes, their imaginations. We can be open to curiosity and uncertainty the way children are. We can change, we must change our perceptions about what it means to be an educator.

This latest video is a powerful statement you can share with educators and families. We lend this content to your attention.
