Denita Dinger is a defender of the joyful and valuable learning that occurs in child-led play. She is passionate about bringing that joy to all early childhood programs, and helping others see play for what it truly is. Dinger states that joyful learning is meaningful learning. It is not forced, nor is it memorized. It is self-motivated and better prepares us for life.
Denita Dinger’s presentations are heartfelt, humorous, valuable, and most importantly, REAL. She doesn’t just throw out theory — she is all about practice, and understands when people struggle with seeing the learning power of play..
Denita has been a keynote presenter since 2009 and has co-authored three books with Jeff A. Johnson through Redleaf Press: “Let Them Play: An Early Learning UnCurriculum”, “Let’s Play”, and “Let’s All Play”.
