Education is redefining what success means for students as they step out of the classroom and into the workforce. There have been an abundance of articles, ideas, and conversations about arming students with 21st-century skills, personalized learning experiences, and social-emotional intelligence. It may come as a surprise that these ideas have long been in practice in the field of early childhood education through play-based learning.
