Ready. Set. Play!

Why did you want to become a teacher?

I bet it wasn't the...

❌ Putting out of endless fires

❌ Teacher bag filled with paperwork

❌ Constant hamster wheel of prep

And, as a Kindergarten teacher myself, I know how frustrating it can also be to feel like you spend much of the day on behaviors, redirections, and not enough time on developmentally appropriate, playful learning.

I have a solution. A way to get back to the dream. A way for you to focus on (and enjoy!) teaching and for your students to love learning.

🖌️You CAN have a classroom where students are more independent and engaged in their learning.

🖌️You CAN move beyond rotations, charts, lists, and timers.

🖌️Your students CAN make choices, learn, AND have fun at the same time.

All of this IS possible with P.L.A.Y. (Playful Learning All Year)!

Have a pressing question you need answered before enrolling in the Playful Learning All Year (P.L.A.Y.) Course?

What if I don’t teach Pre-K or Kindergarten? Will this work for me?

While the course is designed with Pre-K and Kindergarten in mind, you will find that many of the modules in P.L.A.Y. are a framework that can work in any early childhood or primary grade classroom. I (Alex) personally have used these systems in Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade.

How much time will this course take to implement?

While this course is 5 weeks of learning together, you will find that some sections come to you easily, and others you will want to revisit several times throughout the year while implementing them into your classroom. This type of teaching is a marathon not a sprint, and this is why you will have lifetime access to content and materials. You will also receive a certificate for 15 hours of professional development (please check that your district accepts this, as I cannot guarantee they do).

I’m a brand new teacher or new to the Pre-K and Kindergarten grade level, will this course be too advanced?

This course is the exact step by step framework for how to run a playful classroom. 

It is perfect for new teachers, veteran teachers, and everyone in between!

Is there support available if I have questions or I get stuck?

Of course! Attendees will have access to a private Facebook Group and live Q&A sessions with Alex for the duration of the course. We are always available via email as well to assist you.

What can I expect once I enroll in the P.L.A.Y. course?

Upon enrollment, you will receive a confirmation email with your login details to our portal and how to join our Facebook Group. You will receive a weekly email with tips on how to be successful with that week’s module, as well as the live Q&A reminder for that week. Content will be released into your portal weekly throughout the 5 weeks, but you will have lifetime access once the course completes. 

What is the cost and do you have payment options?

The P.L.A.Y. course is $249 to pay in full. You can also choose to pay in 3 installments of $90, spaced one month apart.

Print and Play Club members, your cost is one payment of $124.50. Please refer to your email or our member Facebook group for your exclusive code.

Forms of payment accepted are PayPal and any major credit card. 

Why should I enroll in this course?

We know play is vital to early childhood development and learning. You may feel like you are spending your days managing your classroom (or maybe it’s managing you😅) instead of fostering an environment of independent, engaged learners. This course will guide you and your students to a thriving classroom environment where students are making choices, learning, and having fun at the same time.

We’re not allowed to “play,” should I still take this course?

Absolutely! This course teaches you how to incorporate playful learning into all areas of your classroom, even if you aren’t technically allowed “play time.” The “free play” module could even inspire your school to start incorporating play more regularly!

I feel like I already have so much to do as a teacher! Will I be able to easily implement the ideas in my classroom?

We know teachers are busy, so we have broken down the modules to be as specific and easy to implement as possible. While learning and applying these strategies will take time and possibly feel different than what you may be used to, they will save you so much time in the long run. You will also receive lifetime access to the materials to refer back to at any time.

How is this different from your free training and webinars?

The course is a completely different experience from our free trainings and webinars. Most free trainings are an hour long or via email. Free trainings typically consist of 1-2 tips or strategies. The P.L.A.Y. course is 5 weeks of training and support hosted in a private portal, and is a complete system for your classroom. Attendees receive lifetime access to the content. 

Do we get a certificate for clock hours? 

Attendees will receive a certificate for 15 professional development hours upon completion of the course materials. Please verify that your state and district will accept this certificate, as not all do and we can't guarantee that your district will.

Can my school pay for my course registration?

Absolutely! If your admin would like to purchase directly, please have them reach out to hello@thekindergartenconnection.com.

If you would like to request a reimbursement for some, or all, of your costs, we drafted a letter for you to use. Click HERE to download the letter.
