Play is such a natural part of childhood that we sometimes overlook it.  But if we were to spend some time observing the play of children, what would we learn? Why do children play and why is it so vital to their development?  What do they learn when they play?  How does their play form the basis for their future learning?

Here is some great insight into children’s play from Deborah Stewart,  a veteran early childhood educator and  grandmother who writes  the blog Teach Preschool.  Check out her article here.

Like many parents my wife and I struggled with the decision to send our kids to Kindergarten or to hold them back and let them grow, both mentally and physically, for another year. The PreK II class that Red Apple offered was the perfect solution. Both of our boys were able to use this program to transition into Kindergarten and entered elementary school very well prepared. We could not have been more pleased with the decision that we made.
