A Day of Play at Wilma Rudolph Event Center

As many as 2,000 were expected for the 4th annual “A Day of Play” at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center Sunday, April 9. Noelle Cannon of the Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance (TECTA) was one of the organizers of the event. “This is a joint initiative between the Center for Childcare Resource and Referral and TECTA,” Cannon said. “Early childhood professionals met and discussed how they may teach families and children how to play. We’ve lost play, which is very important to the development of a child’s brain. That’s their only job. They play, they learn, and their brains develop, which has been proven to help them become more successful later in life.”
