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.”

#AskingWhatIf

“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?”

A Simple Way to Promote Children’s Learning Skills

What will today’s four-year-olds need for skills when they enter the workforce? We have no idea – because the world is changing so rapidly that we can’t even begin to imagine what it will look like!

But the one thing we can be sure they’ll need is the ability to solve problems – because there’ll always be plenty of those. And, as the world becomes more complex, so too will the problems. Still, our schools, with their emphasis on rote memorization and filling in bubbles isn’t exactly preparing kids for tomorrow’s world. But you can give them a great start by fostering their critical- and creative-thinking skills…and you can do that by using as much divergent problem solving – in as many different areas of the curriculum – as you can.
