I’ve created these materials with the intention of creating opportunities for you to maximize the educational and developmental benefit to your children - without you having to carry the weight of developing varied and developmentally appropriate activities. Many of the resources will include sections entitled “Talk about it” and “Take it further.” These are meant to be a guide for you emulate what a trained educator might do with that particular activity. I will also be sure to explain exactly what skills your children are acquiring through “play.”Finally, I want to hear from YOU. Please let me know how your Little Explorers are enjoying our materials, ask any questions you may have, and tell me what you would like to see in the future. Happy exploring!
