Dr. Cris Lozon Presents Insight From St. Margaret’s Innovative Preschool Program at National Conferences
St. Margaret’s innovative Preschool curriculum has captured the interest of early-childhood educators from across the country—and has led to a busy fall for Preschool Director Cris Lozon.
Dr. Lozon has shared her expertise in early-childhood education and the philosophy behind St. Margaret’s cutting-edge preschool academic program at two national conferences. At the Association for Constructivist Teaching’s annual conference in Columbia, S.C., Dr. Lozon joined constructivist educator Dr. Jacqueline Brooks to present on enhancing science and engineering practices within children’s play.
Dr. Lozon also presented at the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s annual conference in Washington, D.C., where she shared insight on documenting mathematics and literacy while keeping play in the early-childhood classroom.
St. Margaret’s Preschool curriculum emphasizes literacy, science and math in a play-based, research-based program, which aligns closely with constructivism and the renowned Reggio Emilia approach to early-childhood education.
“The St. Margaret’s community provides us the support and opportunities to pursue these research-based, innovative teaching practices so that we can continue to provide the best possible curriculum for our students,” Dr. Lozon said. “It’s an honor to share insight into our successes with educators from around the country.”
