UNH & Community Collaborations

The establishment of the New Hampshire Play-based Learning Task Force led to connections between and among educators, organizations, and community stakeholders who are invested in promoting positive outcomes for children and families in New Hampshire. As a result of these connections, play-based learning resources have been disseminated throughout NH communities. The UNH Early Learning Coaching Team has also developed ongoing partnerships with organizations throughout the state.


Family Resource Centers

The coaching team has used these partnerships with Family Resource Centers throughout the state as opportunities to engage with children and families at community events. During these events, the team facilitates open-ended play experiences for children and shares resources related to play-based learning and UNH's Early Childhood Initiative.
