Play Research by Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek


Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek is one of the leading evidence-based researchers examining the importance of playful learning for children in the early years. Playful learning as part of the preschool experience has huge implications for how children learn and long term academic outcomes, as well as the workforce of the future. Playful, guided learning takes a "whole child" approach and allows children to be active learners through the "6 Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and the confidence to put it all together.
