Preschool is a magical time for children - filled with wonder, curiosity, and excitement for learning. As early childhood education teachers and parents, it is our job to encourage that interest in the world around them so they will become lifelong learners.
This site is a guide for preschool parents and teachers. Features early childhood education ideas, articles and other how-to information to help you work with preschoolers!
As your encouraging and approachable Professor, I would like to help guide you along the journey toward being the best teacher and/or parent you can be.
“But how do I do that?” you may be asking. I used to wonder that too. As an early childhood educator myself, I felt the pressure of trying to make every lesson plan exciting, every activity memorable, every craft project worthy of being hung in the Louvre. It was overwhelming sometimes. Then I realized something.
I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. I didn’t have to come up with lesson plans that had never been done before in the history of early childhood education. There is a wealth of information “out there,” and I just had to find it! With all the millions of websites out there, where was I supposed to go for reliable, up-to-date information and activities for teaching preschool? I was looking for more than just a collection of lesson plans, activities, games, and songs though.
I wanted to help others better understand young children, hear from other teachers and parents who were “in the trenches,” and learn strategies to help each other on this journey! We don’t have to travel this road alone. You’ve got me, The Preschool Professor, as well as the thousands of other visitors to this website.
So, go grab a cup of coffee. You’re going to need it! It’s ok. I’ll wait….........Got it? Alright, let’s get chatting then! Let's chat as though we are sitting across from a colleague or friend, sharing our latest triumph or challenge in teaching our children. My wish is that’s how you feel as you navigate through this website.
