Your child is about to embark on a lifelong journey of learning. These initial steps are by far the most important. It's the foundation upon which all else is built.
Some parents struggle with this important distinction: Early childhood learning has nothing to do with academia or rote learning! Why, because children don't learn like we do! They have to be actively engaged in things that spark their interest. Then, and only then, can you integrate learning that's meaningful to them.
The approach towards learning is just as important as the journey itself. Shaping this attitude is the single most important thing we do.
Scientific data has long confirmed that children learn best through play. If the data changes we will too. Until then, let's learn through play.
