Some words about our Workshop: ‘Nothing without joy: Why Malaguzzi got it right’

Joy is one of the four basic motivating emotions of the human being! Joy for young children derives from many factors, but is mainly intertwined with play. This presentation will highlight the benefits that joy through play can  have in the cognitive development and academic achievement in preschool and school-aged children.
