You are an incredible teacher, I have watched you with awe and will strive to be even a fraction of the leader and mentor that you have been to your students. As a parent I appreciate all you have done for my daughter; as an aspiring teacher I look at you as a role model. (from Jarrah’s mom)
The earlier you start the more time you and your child have for kindergarten readiness. As the following graph shows, the prime window of development in nearly all areas for young children is before school even begins. Parents and caregivers are the first teachers. School is a follow-up to the work–and play–that you have already started.
“The good news is that maximizing learning during this critical time can be done in minutes a day, piggy-backing on to all the other activities that you are already doing. It’s not a question of adding on, but targeting in. And having fun!” Barbara Allisen
