Hosted by Dr. Marianne Bloch, professor emerita Curriculum & Instruction Department, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Ms. Cheng spent a week in Madison meeting with educators, graduate students, local children and parents and met with Kaleem Caire of One City Early Learning Centers to discuss creating the first Anji Play pilot school outside of China. Ms. Cheng addressed Dr. Bloch's graduate class "The Politics of Early Childhood Education," introduced Anji Play to parents and students at Wingra School, Preschool of the Arts and Midvale Elementary. Because Anji Play is committed to equal access to play, Ms. Cheng and our team are thrilled that the first U.S. Anji Play pilot school serves primarily low-income, minority families in Madison. Dr. I-Fang Lee, School of Education, University of Newcastle, New South Wales, a member of the Anji Play advisory committee, took on demanding task of interpreting for Ms. Cheng's during her visit to Madison.
