Jen Vermillion / Melissa Heinemann / Lisa Bencivenga

In this episode I chat with Melissa Heinemann and Lisa Bencivenga of Gigi's Getaway - an outdoor preschool dedicated to teaching through play. We chat about how play and nature can be tools for learning and how (in the words of Maria Montessori) play is the work of children.

Melissa and Lisa share about the things they've learned from their students, how they've had to be flexible in an outdoor environment and even share some crazy stories like having multiple funerals for the same dead bird.
