If you’ve been listening to these podcasts for a while, then this episode’s guest is no stranger to you. And even if you haven’t, the odds are good that you’ve read one of her many books, been forwarded one of her many articles published by The Huffington Post, or you may have even seen her at a recent conference.
That’s right, I’m talking about my friend, child advocate and consultant, Rae Pica. We had a great conversation recently about how and why we should get parents on board with play based, developmentally appropriate education.
Whether she’s sharing her expertise with Nike, Sesame Street, the CDC, or a room full of educators, Rae always brings an abundance of passion and a wealth of experience. This episode is no exception.
