Workshop Description

In this webinar, Kisa will guide the audience through the traditional model that usually encloses children under the pressure of unreasonable expectation and pin-point why this method does not align with DAP and actually inhibits optimal learning. Kisa will then demonstrate how establishing a play pedagogy meets the child where they presently are, allows them to grow in an organic way and provides multiple opportunities to connect, build confidence, a sense of belonging and creates a framework for lifetime learning and self-actualization.

About the Instructor

Master Learner, Educational Consultant, and Founder of Kidcrew Adventures Early Childhood Community Kisa Marx

Kisa Marx is the founder of Kidcrew Adventures located in Oak , Illinois. After working in the field of Early Education for over twenty years, she has become a fierce advocate for the physical, social and emotional development of the smallest among us, and in 2020 that journey led to deconstructing the traditional teaching model that is often adult-centered in order to place relationships and connection at the head and the child in the center. When Kisa is not defending the rights of children and play, she can be found hanging with her crew, with her family or cuddled up with one of her fur babies and surrounded by plants.
