My early childhood education work – whether it’s in the form of keynotes, consulting, coaching, books, articles, or radio interviews – is primarily dedicated to the understanding, now confirmed through brain research, that active learning equals authentic learning. We have to teach to the whole child!

“I shouldn’t have to defend play for children any more than I should have to defend their eating, sleeping, and breathing.”

“Childhood is not a dress rehearsal for adulthood, nor is it a race. It is separate, unique, and a very special phase of life.”

Rae Pica

#AskingWhatIf

“We talk so much about preparing kids for school but give very little thought to preparing schools for kids.”

Rae Pica

#AskingWhatIf

“If we accept that no two snowflakes are alike, why wouldn’t we accept that no two [children] – even of the same gender and age – are alike?”

ACTIVE LEARNING WITH RAE

Anyone who has ever taught – whether they’re facilitating movement experiences or reading a book to the children — knows how it feels when the children aren’t particularly interested in what you have to offer. Even worse, when they decide to display their displeasure by acting out. I once worked with a group of 4-year-olds who challenged me beyond anything I could have imagined. Truth be told, they kept me from working with children again for three years! But there are alternatives to throwing in the towel, and in this video I’ll share some of them with you.
