young child expo & conference 2013

 

 

On April 19th, Imagination Playground participated with Jean Schrieber, M.S. in the 10th Annual Young Child Expo & Conference. Presented by Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education and Los Niños Services, the conference brings together over 1,000 educators, childcare experts and parents in order to learn about child education and development.

An early supporter of Imagination Playground, Jean Schrieber, presented how the Blocks provide endless opportunities for open-ended play indoors and outdoors. She detailed how Imagination Playground is appropriate for children of all ages, and emphasized how the Blocks provide a stress-free escape from the pressures of an increasing test-oriented education system. We were excited to see educators and parents asking questions, testing out the Imagination Playground Blocks, and interested in attending Play Dates. Thank you, Jean!
