The Importance of Being Little | Bestselling Author Erika Christakis

March 29, 201644 min
Early childhood educator ERIKA CHRISTAKIS has dedicated her life to small children. This former preschool teacher and director, Yale Child Study Center lecturer, and mother of three chats with Ellie Knaus about her New York Times bestseller "The Importance of Being Little: What Preschoolers Really need From Grownups." Preschool has become the new Kindergarten, and that's a problem! She shares research that backs up the importance of play based, exploratory learning. And she talks about how classrooms are falling short with all their worksheets and tests and meaningless crafts, and how we can give our little ones what they need!
