Hilltop Educator Institute Presents:
The Importance of the Active Body Brain Connection
Thursday, June 1st
Facilitated by Deb Curtis

More is going on when children move their bodies than just staying healthy and getting their wiggles out. New information and resources about the importance of active physical play for young children's development is showing up everywhere. There is growing alarm about the impact of the lack of active play, as early childhood educators often prevent and stop children's exuberant play on behalf of safety and learning. Active play, which is an integral part of sensory motor development, actually builds neural pathways necessary for children to focus their eyes and attention, regulate their emotions, and develop the ability to plan and carry out a task. This Evening Discussion will invite you to study principles that will help educators ensure children get the active play experiences they deserve.

Deb Curtis has spent the past 40 years working with children and teachers, observing and studying children and child development. She currently works as a teacher at Epiphany Early Learning Preschool in Seattle. She is also the co-author of many books and articles related to working in early childhood programs. You can learn more about these resources at www.ecetrainers.com
