Missing Image


A child’s “preparation” for school success looks nothing like ours. A child’s preparation for life and school comes through boisterous play, spontaneous play, running and roughhousing, playing house and playing pirates. Yelling, screaming and crying are part of it. So is first friend-making (and rejection). Taking risks— creative risks, physical risks and social risks. Dressing up and storytelling. Trying out crazy (and messy!) art. Encountering conflict. Sorting it out. Young kids already have a full agenda: play.
