About me

Introduction Welcome to Play Counts! My name is Denita Dinger. I have enjoyed the honor of being a family child care/preschool teacher for 16 years. I am just beginning a new venture as a play school teacher (I waved goodbye to my all-day program in May of 2014). After gradually transitioning my program from teacher-led to child-led, I can say, without doubt that play truly is the "important stuff". I love to share my journey with others who also feel the need to slow down the pushing of academics and make positive changes to their early childhood program. I am proud to call myself a defender of play, and sincerely hope you find inspiration here and choose to join me on my mission to help others see the value of play!
