The Powerful Role of Play (CPIN)

Play is important! Play is Powerful! Play is FUN! The Powerful Role of Play in Early Education.

We are thrilled to announce an in-person California Preschool Instructional Network (CPIN) professional learning session for preschool, TK, and early childhood special education staff, focusing on the pivotal California Department of Education publication, “The Powerful Role of Play in Early Education.” Join the Sonoma County CPIN instructional team as we explore and discuss the critical role play-based learning serves in supporting children’s development and debunk common myths about play and learning. Plan for a hands-on, minds-on learning experience during this free session. Each participant will receive a copy of the document and earn three workforce registry professional learning hours.
