Rooted in Play

This month one of our ELM coaches, Denise Pullano, teamed up with Rooted in Play. Rooted in Play wants to get children back outside enjoying self-directed play. One of our ELM centers participated in their PopUp Adventure Playgrounds. Rooted in Play brought open-ended materials called loose parts (i.e. boxes, pots and pans, tires) and watched the children's imaginations flourish.
