We must teach...

- John Cleal

We must teach our children
To smell the Earth
To taste the rain
To touch the wind
To see things grow
To hear the sun rise
and night fall
To care


When we do...

When we do the thinking for the children and plan things step by step, we lose the children's potential for invention. - Isabella Mennoni

Make...

Make the most of your time here. - Amy Krouse Rosenthal

To be with children...

To be with children is to work one-third with certainty and two-thirds with uncertainty and the new. - Loris Malaguzzi

In My Pocket

I kept always two books in my pocket, one to read, one to write in. - Robert Louis Stevenson

Practice

Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning. - Mister Rogers

Best Dog

Everyone thinks they have the best dog...and none of them are wrong. - W. R. Purche

Tell their Story

The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them. - Laurence Binyon

Reading with Your Child

I feel strongly that by reading with your child, by the simple act of holding them close while you read to them, you let them know that you care for them, have time for them and love them. - Eric Carle
