Time does fly when you are having fun!
I dedicate this post to some very special people who have all been instrumental in my understanding that, EVERY CHILD HAS the RIGHT to an EXCEPTIONAL EARLY CHILHOOD EXPERIENCE.

A positive learning climate in a school for young children is a composite of many things. It is an attitude that respects children. It is a place where children receive guidance and encouragement from the responsible adults around them. It is an environment where children can experiment and try out new ideas without fear or failure. It is an atmosphere that builds children’s self-confidence so they dare to take risks. It is an environment that nurtures a love of learning.
