Early Childhood Edu-PLAY-tion is a blog devoted to promoting the importance of restoring play in childhood and early learning. The content can benefit parents, educators, and other community stakeholders involved with the care and education of young children. Topics range from play to zen practices to raising globally minded citizens committed to caring for humankind and our earth.

I am a passionate early Childhood Education Advocate and Author who believes in restoring play in childhood and early learning, especially play in nature. I embrace a holistic approach to development and early learning.

My first children’s book, The Safety Jewels, is available from Amazon.

My second book, Zensory Experiences in Nature: Intentional Nature Dates to Nurture Mind, Body, and Soul: A Creative Writing and Reflective Journaling Program for Zententional Living, is available from Lulu. (see sidebar on right)
