Love to be part of this group as it can form a common group for both the Parents and carers to share the responsibility for their own and other children in the group, to watch and learn from them, to learn with other parents/carers, and to support each other.

I'm new here. Can't quite see if there's an official place to "join" this group, but I'd like to be part of your discussions, at least listen in! My first question is: What is your favorite source for professional development? OK, now I'll listen. Many thanks.

Welcome to the Power of Preschool, Jennifer! I'm so glad that you found our little group. Feel free to jump into any discussion or start one of your own. We can't wait to start learning from you!

Yay, a preschool group :)

I'm an early childhood teacher at a progressive preschool / school in Australia and I have an interest in alternative education; nature play; outdoor learning environments and generally sharing ideas with other teachers. Its easy to be isolated in a classroom situation, so this is a great way to "meet" other preschool teachers. I blog at http;//progressiveearlychildhoodeducation.blogspot.com
