Join the College of Education to celebrate PLAY DAY, the grand opening of the Teacher Education Play Lab. The Play Lab is an interactive, hands-on classroom specially designed to prepare aspiring teachers in the theory, science, and application of play.
Stop by during the day to attend a fun and informative event, or enjoy networking, games, and snacks from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. at our grand opening reception.
The Play Lab was created with support from the PLAY Consortium Fund, a collaboration between community partners and donors, created to improve outcomes in early childhood through play research and outreach through the NU Foundation. Donors being honored at an afternoon gratitude ceremony include playground manufacturer BCI Burke Company, architectural firm RDG Planning and Design, Montessori expert and scholarship funder Dr. LaVonne Plambeck, and educational and play environment designer Peggy Pawloski.
