Hilltop's Educator Discussion Series Presents:
Play and the Developing Brain: How Play-based Early Learning Prepares Children for Elementary School  
Thursday, January 26th
Facilitated by Amelia Bachleda of UW I-LABS



Children love to play, and they need play to support healthy learning and development. In this session, we will focus on the importance and power of play in a child's development and how children use play to build skills and understanding of the world around them. Based on current research from the University of Washington and other institutions, we will talk about the ways children play, and how those change throughout childhood. We will also talk about how children learn through play, discussing research that highlights how both free play and guided play build fundamental language and literacy, math and reasoning, and social-emotional skills that are crucial for success in the elementary years and beyond.

Amelia is an outreach specialist at the University of Washingtons Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences. I-LABS research focuses on early learning and brain development. During talks and workshops, Amelia shares the latest science with the early learning community. She has a PhD in neurobiology and specializes in developmental neuroscience.

Washington STARS hours available - please bring your MERIT I.D. number.
