Educating our children is so very important. We all have different views of what should be expected, what age formal education should begin, what the role of the parents are in education, etc. etc. I've come to learn through my experiences in education that there is no one right way to educate everyone. And that is the beauty of being a parent, you have the ability to decide what is best for your child. So if these issues have been on your mind, here are a few more things to think about (even if your child is still a baby):

Laura Modrell will be starting a preschool in her home this fall. She has a bachelors degree in early childhood education and has 4 years teaching experience in kindergarten. This upcoming year she will focus on using the Zoo Phonics Program, which uses multiple learning styles to teach the letter sounds. In addition to literacy, she will also focus on science, math, art, music and socialization. Check out her flyer here. She will also have summer classes that are 2 weeks long for preschoolers.

Holly Spilsbury-Eddy is a Montessori teacher and is in process of opening a Montessori Nido. She is associated with the Montessori International School in Mesa. One of her main objectives with the Nido is to provide parent education about the importance of the first three years of life. February the 24th and 26th she is offering a 2 session complimentary Mommy and Me course and wanted to invite anyone in the community that might be interested. The course times are 10:00-11:00 AM (morning session) or 6:30-7:30 PM (evening session). She will focus on ways we can create an environment in our homes that will help your child towards independence and confidence which will unlock your child's learning potential. Please call 480-264-7195 to reserve a spot. This course will be beneficial for parents of those up to 3 years of age, but the Nido is only set up for children up to 14 months, so leave children older than 14 month at home. For more information about the Nido visit her blog.
