This was my first chance to speak to a group of parents about the Playscape Project. I am hopeful that the Holyoke preschool will be the 3rd site where we will get involved this semester. There was a group of 20-25 parents present, who had thoughtful questions and seemed interested and supportive. Once we get permission slips returned, we will make an initial visit and get started. I am realizing that the real success of our work will be when we can get a whole school community of parents, teachers and kids all on board and involved. There is lots to discuss regarding the “state of childhood” in our times, and how more and more kids seem to be growing up with too much “screen time” and not enough movement and exercise time.
