Children quickly engage in imaginative play with a puppet around.  Often a child can be less inhibited to talk to a puppet then speak with a person.  The first time a puppet is introduced to a child, a young child will typically hit the puppet.  It is like they are testing to see if the puppet is alive, like poking a bug.  It is well to teach the child not to hit the puppet or it will go away.  A puppet also helps the adult who may have...

Many ask what does your preschool teach?  Preschool years are known to be the premier time for children to learn.  This learning is primarily that of a emotional mind set in addition to a secondary skill set.  It is first of all their world view.  So when you pick a preschool, parents should think about who they want that child to be.  How do you want them to feel and how do you want them to view the world? What attitude can they develop for success?  Academics come EASILY to those EMOTI...
