Introducing Your Host
I’ve been working and teaching in the field of early childhood education for over 30 years. As the owner and a teacher in my own part-time, private preschool called The Children’s Studio, I’ve always had a deep passion for teaching and working with young children. I’ve documented and shared my passion with millions of readers around the world through my blog and other social networking communities for over 10 years.
At the heart of that passion is the belief that young children learn best through play and exploration and every thing I do in my classroom reflects that belief. It brings me great joy to share real life, and proven practices with other teachers, parents, and leaders across the field of early childhood education.
The conference is just around the corner. Register now!
