About this event

The Importance of Being Little

Can we repair the early childhood “habitat” in which young children learn and grow? In this webinar, Erika Christakis will discuss the science and impact of PLAY in the early years and how to teach young children in the ways that they are wired to learn.

Erika Christakis is an early childhood educator, New York Times best-selling author of The Importance of Being Little: What Young Children Really Need From Grownups, and member of the National Advisory Board of Defending the Early Years. A former faculty member of the Yale Child Study Center, she has written widely about child development from preschool through the college years. Erika is an honors graduate of Harvard College, where she majored in anthropology, and holds master’s degrees in public health, communication, and early childhood education. She is a Massachusetts-certified teacher (pre-k through 2nd grade) as well as a licensed preschool director.
