About the Child Care Collection
We have been producing training materials for early childhood professionals for more than 15 years. We began by airing our programs on public television stations and then converted those programs to VHS and DVD. Our DVDs cover a wide range of child care related topics, all of which are widely used in the formal and informal training of early childhood professionals. Our DVD titles and ordering information can be found here.
In 2000, after producing three programs about the work of Vivian Paley, we became more and more interested in children and their stories. We began doing storytelling and story acting in a variety of settings, and enlisted the help of other teachers and storytellers.
The results of the thinking and collecting and collaborating are now available in our wonderful new training opportunity: an online catalog, The Language of Story and Play. We hope you will join us as we continue exploring this fascinating and critical, yet often invisible or misunderstood, part of the world of young children.
