My preschoolers taught me something special, if I give them an avenue to express themselves freely, and have everyone’s attention along with it, joy just skyrockets! Then when it is work time, they are more settled!
So the fun discovery of what lights up each child is paramount! Then by including that passion in circle time, they feel their needs are being met!
I find that for the first time, there is a sincere, loving, honoring relationship that is really being established!
