“the quiet house” on the 3-6 year old children’s playground

on a trip to visit schools in north carolina

i loved meeting the young children

and

i loved meeting the educators who 

understood the importance 

of using

play, compassion, kindness, projects, community

and

hands-on learning

when teaching young children. 

i met many people who were so passionate

about

education and children and life in general.

what a lot i learned from them. 


the whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.

  1. As a retired early childhood teacher, this was encouraging, as such creative programs seem to be few and far between these days. Children need to experience the natural world! Nice post, Beth😀

  3. Beautiful description of learning, Beth. I like getting new ideas first hand. They would love all the exciting learning in your kinders world, too. Construction, imagination, nature- all seasons including snow play in Michigan. . . lovely exchanges! 🙂 Gotta love George Carlin!!
