Are You The Parent of A Young Child?
You may be deeply concerned, as we are, by the current push to institutionalize young children in government funded preschools. There is an over emphasis on intense early academic instruction particularly in the areas of reading, writing, and math. It is fueled by misguided politicians who have succumbed to pressure by teachers' unions and corporate interests that stand to profit from public preschools.
In his State of the Union address, President Obama proposed to provide preschool access to all four-year-olds across America, regardless of a recent study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that said Head Start did not have long-term benefits, and that any initial positive impact completely vanished by the time a child reached third grade. In other words, government preschools are a waste of taxpayers' money. (To learn more read "The Government's Plan for Diapers to Diplomas.")
Additionally, these misguided preschool proponents encourage unproven methods of instruction that cause undue stress in young children leading to learning and behavioral problems.
Many parents instinctively feel the need to protect their little ones from this harmful educational fad. Instead of sending their little ones off to preschool, they teach them at home. Here are some learning activities, playful preschool curriculum, and games to get you started:
- St. Patrick's Day Shenanigans! - Fun ideas for celebrations with your wee folk.
- Springtime Learning Activities! - Welcome spring with these fun ideas.
- Fun with Dandelions! - Head to the garden or take a walk around your neighborhood to learn with dandelions.
