[Heads up--there's a wee bit of audio issues in the first part of the interview, but hang it there--it gets better!]

This month we are going to be rethinking education. For anyone that has followed the podcast for sometime, you will know that I am an advocate for progressive forms of education. Namely child-led learning styles. In today's episode, I am chatting with author and educator Aubrey Hargis of Child of the Redwoods. Aubrey is sharing her insight into the earliest of years of education--infancy and toddlerhood. What do babies really need as far as education in those first years of life?
