My New Site

Welcome to my preschool site. I’m very excited to share with you what I’ve learned over the years about preschool age children! I’ve always had a passion for working with children.

Even at a young age I can remember volunteering to work with kids of all ages. I think that my interest was partly because they are so teachable and resilient. Children know what we teach them, they learn by example.

Some of the topics we will cover are:

  • Getting your child ready for preschool- what does this look like from a teacher’s perspective?(what are some of the things expected for your child to know?)
  • Crafts/recipes-we will have projects to keep your little ones busy, and yummy recipes to make together.
  • Activities-what can you do together with your preschooler to keep them busy? We will give you ideas of games to play together(in hopes of tiring them out), and places to visit.

You might find that you are already familiar with topics that we discuss, but hopefully you will find something that will be helpful. If nothing else, I wish to remind moms+dads that you aren’t alone in this process.

Parenting isn’t an easy job at any age, and parenting a toddler at times is even harder! I think of the old saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” It really does take more than just mom+dad to raise a child. Our children will have the best ability to become healthy adults if we work together.

Feel free to leave a comment about a topic that would interest you. Thanks for joining me on this journey…

  1. Hi Dana, I’m liking the look of your site, very professional and i think it could become an authority. You are passionate about working with and educating kids, which is definitely one of the most noble professions to do.

    As a parent myself I’m looking forward to joining you on this journey, because i think i have some good experience for my age at raising kids, and hopefully will be learning some great new pointers here as well 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this!

  2. So happy I found your site! My sister’s son is going into preschool in September and she is going to love this! I wish this site were around when my son was younger! I love the fact that you are including info about what to expect, projects to enjoy and easy recipes! Can’t wait to show this to her!

  3. Very friendly and helpful website for parents, preparing our children can be overwhelming especially for young parents with their first child.

    I can see how your website is going to be very helpful for young parents, it is great you have the desire to help parents prepare their children for the future.

  4. What a great website for new parents. I will definitely keep coming back for new posts and to learn something new every time. My cousins baby girl is growing up so fast so if I could give him a few ideas and tips that would be great. I can’t wait to see the recipes and I am super excited for the Arts and Crafts side.
    Thanks for a great site.
    Kind Regards Chani
