Why do children skip?

Elevating joy in your setting: a seminar with Ben Kingston-Hughes

We want our settings to have soul. Educators who are partners in play. Children running to staff to share moments of joy. Ben Kingston-Hughes is a play specialist who teaches adults how to engage with children. Our brains are wired for far more than sleeping, eating, and procreating. How else do you explain belly laughs? Somewhere back in our evolution, a bit of DNA mutated to give our brains a penchant for play. Play gives us joy and as educators, we look for that in our children and want to sustain it. Moments of joy are moments of learning when all five senses are wide open and processing. This video shows you how to share moments like that with your children
