This breaks my heart.



This article showed up in my feed today, and it has so much to chew on, I had to share it. The idea that screens are the solution to our social failure to value and support ALL of our children is depressing, with the added insult of it being a highly profitable venture for people who can afford to send their children to a quality program like ours. The article answers the age old question about kindergarten readiness too, and that is why I shared it …. those are the essential, developmentally appropriate experiences every single American child deserves, one way or another, before they enter a classroom where academic expectations exist.

About Kris Taylor

I am the very fortunate director of two small, mixed-age preschools that are finding their unique paths by interpreting and incorporating the best of the progressive, constructivist early childhood philosophies. I never forget that the community of teachers, families and children are what makes it the amazing place that it is. Each day is another precious opportunity to practice and perfect valuing, respecting and loving one another; creating and exploring community; and having immeasurable fun in the process.
