"I believe that the school systems are only as strong as the parents who are engaged in each child's life. It is the parents who play a major role in shaping each child's interest in education long before the child ever steps foot in a classroom. To this end, I have created a website that puts the expertise of early childhood educators at the fingertips of parents. I teamed up with renowned educators who contributed over 1800 activity suggestions that correspond to a child's age/developmental stage. The format is convenient for parents and fun for children. Activities are simple, use materials found around the home and, most importantly, focus on parent-child bonding."
