Join PEDAL for a fascinating research seminar by Professor Daryl Greenfield

Science has the power to engage early childhood educators and young children in hands-on, minds-on, fun and engaging experiences that increase the quality of teaching as well as provide young children with critical problem-solving skills and improved learning in multiple school readiness areas.

In this PEDAL research seminar, Professor Greenfield will discuss the role of science in early education in relation to research, as well as current policy and practice.
