Application: Creating a Parent/Family Brochure

profileaw558

You have been learning about the vital link between play and healthy development and learning. For this application, imagine that you are the director of an NAEYC accredited preschool committed to developmentally appropriate practice. Recently, you and other program staff have heard rumblings from parents and other family members that the children in your program are not "learning enough." Some parents are asking why there are no worksheets, no "beginning readers," and no spelling or math flash cards—all of which are prevalent in a few of the other programs in your area. In response to these rumblings and to help develop a deeper understanding of how young children learn, you decide to hold a series of parent/family meetings. You also decide to create a brochure explaining the overall purpose of play and consider the following:

  • The various kinds of play
  • The ways play can support children's development and learning
  • How play accommodates individual variations in children's development
  • Adults' roles in fostering quality play
  • Specific examples that illustrate your points

You present your ideas at a staff meeting and everyone agrees. Together you decided that the format of the brochure which will consist of at least the following:

  • A paragraph introduction stating the purpose of the brochure,
  • 5–10 clear, concise bulleted points covering the basics of what you want parents/family members to understand about children's play and its relationship to development and learning
  • A closing paragraph that summarizes your philosophy about why play is so important to healthy development and learning
  • At least two annotated resources (books, articles, and/or web articles) that you recommend that support your thinking and will help parents/family members grow in their understanding of this important topic.
