Stacy Benge

Early Childhood Author and Speaker

Stacy approaches early learning with practicality and common sense. Her passions include whole child development, physical development, language development, emergent literacy, and child-led play to build solid foundations for school and life success.

Stacy's presentations stand firm on the truth that children learn best through authentic, simple experiences. Professional development trainings include learning the fundamentals of child development alongside strategies and practical applications for encouraging child-led play in the early childhood classroom. Sessions conclude with details on broaching conversations with stakeholders concerning the development of the whole child before introducing academic concepts. 

Based on her book, The Whole Child Alphabet: How Children Actually Develop Literacy published by Exchange Press, Stacy's presentations are suitable for administrators, educators, teachers, caregivers, para professionals, and stakeholders working in public schools, private schools preschool, child cares, day cares, and early learning centers serving infants, toddlers, preschool, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten age children.
