Anji Play is the internationally-recognized early childhood curriculum developed and tested over the past 15 years by educator Cheng Xueqin. Today, AnjiPlay is the curriculum of the 130 public kindergartens in Anji County, China serving more than 14,000 children from ages 3 to 6. Through sophisticated practices, site-specific environments, unique materials and integrated technology AnjiPlay is quickly establishing itself as a new global standard for early childhood education. Love, Risk, Joy, Engagement, Reflection,these are the guiding principles of AnjiPlay.
Since 2014 Cas has been working with Cheng Xueqin, Dr. Chelsea Bailey, and Jesse Coffino along with a group of internationally renowned academics, play activists and educators to bring the Anji Play movement to the rest of the world. Cas works closely with the team to design what this will look like, and how it will happen.
Cas believes Anji Play as the most ideal educational model for a future of independent, creative, self-assured citizens.
