Conceived and developed largely beyond the influence of western theory, Ms. Cheng and her colleagues have created a model for learning that is both uniquely Chinese and profoundly resonate with the best of western practice. Motivated by the sincere wish to “return to children the right to play,” visionary regional director Cheng (Angela) Xueqin and a core group of school leaders have committed themselves to developing the material, emotional, and intellectual context for children’s “true play” to emerge and thrive.
Coming to the U.S. from Anji, China, Ms. Cheng will present the history, development, and core practices of this extraordinary example of authentic engagement with the nature and process of children’s lives through play.
