Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2008
Today, the BAM Radio Network (BRN), a joint project of Moving & Learning and Jackstreet Media, teamed with the Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children (PAEYC) to launch a new channel for educators and families. The new resource will give PAEYC's 1100 members access to the latest insights in early childhood development. The channel will feature BRN's premier program, Body, Mind and Child (http://www.bodymindandchild.com), hosted by Rae Pica, an early childhood expert with 30 years of experience in the field. The program will be Nanocasted on the PAEYC web site at http://www.pghaeyc.org, and made available for download to the organization's members and parents via podcast.
"PAEYC has supported high quality early care and education for young children for almost 50 years. We're delighted to collaborate with them to expand the resources they provide to members and families," said Rae Pica.
Linda Wagner, president of the PAEYC board, stated, "We are so pleased to offer this resource to the early childhood education community on our PAEYC website. The BAM podcasts are easy to access and provide timely and helpful connections to the leading experts working in the early childhood field. PAEYC is pleased to partner with BAM to provide this vital service."
Founded in 1963, the Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children is the southwestern Pennsylvania affiliate of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and works to support high quality early care and education for young children through professional development, collaboration with community resources and advocacy for the needs and rights of children, their families and the individuals who work with them. The organization serves a 10-county region.
About BAM Radio Network
The BAM Radio Network was launched to address the severe imbalance in parenting practices caused by the "commercialization of parenting" and the emphasis on intellectual development that excludes the critical role of the mind/body connection in early childhood. Created by leading early childhood experts, the programming challenges the popular genre of parenting notions that has given rise to commercial products like Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby and lapware, all of which claim to accelerate a child's mental development in the face of science that suggests otherwise. The network is a joint venture between New Hampshire-based Moving & Learning and Los Angeles-based Jackstreet Media. The program is distributed through the Affiliate Nanocasting Network.
