Here is a jack-o'-lantern that our preschool class had. One of the families donated it to us. One of our teachers carved it and then the children scooped out all the pumpkin seeds and the pulp. The kids loved it when we would turn the lights off and like the jack-o'-lantern during lunch. We would use battery operated candles or the flashlight on our phones. I hope everyone is enjoying their Halloween!
I started the Play2Grow blog to network with other childcare providers. I’m currently working on my masters in early childhood studies with a concentration in administration and management. I’m a preschool teacher working with children from ages two and a half to five. I've been a volunteer in the infant and toddler rooms which was a great experience. I’ve had several part-time jobs at other childcare centers and have completed an internship in 2009. I have a bachelors degree in mental health and human services and certifications in child development and infant/toddler orientation. I enjoy working with children and planning creative activities for them. I believe that play is the best way for them to learn.
On a personal note, I have two spoiled cats. I spend a lot of time on the computer either writing entries for the blog, finding articles for my animal related Pawlog twitter feed or reading random things that I find. I enjoy the outdoors as well. If you have any comments or questions, E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
