Description

What can kindergarteners gain from play-based learning? Join us for a screening of “Kindergarten: Where Play and Learning Can Meet,” a documentary that explores the advantages associated with a play-based approach in kindergarten and features stories of how Valley View School District 365U and School District U-46 made the transition to play-based learning.

Watch the documentary trailer.

“Kindergarten: Where Play and Learning Can Meet” was produced in collaboration with WTTW Channel 11 and the Midwest Early Childhood Research Alliance at Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Midwest.

The documentary includes scientific findings about the cognitive and social-emotional benefits of play from experts Dr. Roberta Golinkoff (University of Delaware), Dr. Christina Weiland (University of Michigan), and Dr. Eboni Howard (American Institutes for Research).

After the screening, REL Midwest staff will facilitate a panel discussion with documentary participants. Screening attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions about the research and programs featured in the documentary.
