Home and School Partnerships
It’s a new school year and what better time to talk about home and school partnerships. For the purposes of this article, the term “school” includes childcare centers, preschools, public, and private school systems.

Teachers, management, parents, grandparents… etc. must work together for the benefit of the child. Today, we will discuss some of the ways those partnerships are built and maintained. Read more
The Importance of Play in Early Childhood
“It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.” -Leo F. Buscaglia

If you’ve ever sat and watched a child play, you can almost see the little wheels spinning in their heads. They bring this exuberance and excitement to their environment. They pull out a set of blocks and you just can’t wait to see what they create. Their minds flash upon images they have seen in storybooks, TV, and real-life. Then, they spend all this time building their masterpiece and want to tell you a story about their creation. Suddenly, in an instant, they turn around and knock the whole thing down and laugh. The destruction was just as exciting as the creation. Read more
