I am very pleased with the information provided in the town square modules. They are insightful, thought provoking, and inspiring. I have been a child care provider for more than 2 decades. However, upon my divorce in 2011, I became a Family Child Care Professional. The face of early childhood is changing. The trainings are more informative and purposeful. I am continually searching for ways to improve the service I provide, the environment in which we interact daily, and make a positive impact in the lives of those I touch.
I need to inventory my supplies and reorganize them to make it easier to rotate materials on a regular basis. It is very difficult to find the time since I work 60 + hours per week and am a single mom of a 6 year old. However, one step at a time. These trainings motivate me. So, thank you!
I also appreciate affirmation of my own thoughts that too much clutter and color is overwhelming and distracting. As early childhood educators, we are bombarded with catalogs telling us about all of these amazing products that we need to help our young children learn. Thank you to the people dedicated to helping us make the most of the time we have with our children.
