    Dear NAEYC Community--

    We are pleased to let you know that today we published a new blog post written by the facilitators of theEarly Childhood Science Interest Forum, the Play, Policy, & Practice Interest Forum, and the Young Child and Spirituality Interest Forum. The post, "Science, Play, and Spirituality: Three Interest Forums Explore Connectivity and Deep Engagement" and brought together three distinct perspectives on best practice and to investigate the many ways deep engagement promotes learning and development.   It recounts their collaborative session at the 2016 Annual Meeting.

    Here's a link: Science, Play, and Spirituality: Three Interest Forums Explore Connectivity and Deep Engagement | National Association for the Education of Young Children | NAEYC


    The post raises some interesting points about the value of collaboration among forums, especially about the intersection of play, spirituality, and science.  What ideas do you have for interest forum collaboration?  What value do you see in having various 'subfields' of early childhood talk with each other?

    Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
