Hi! I’m Ashley Brooks, an early childhood educator, mom and advocate for play based education. I have over 15 years experience in Early Childhood settings, including 12 years in Pre-K to 2nd grade public school. I received a Master of Arts in Teaching in Early Childhood Education in 2007, became National Board Certified in Early Childhood in 2009, and am published in the Journal of Research in Childhood Education. I am an active member of the International Play Association & NAEYC and a certified trainer with TXAEYC.
My goal is to help schools and families balance the importance of play-based learning with the world of standards and expectations in which we live. Let’s work together to do what is proven as best practices for your kids and students.
