We are a retired kindergarten/preschool teacher of 25 years and a pre-service teacher working on her Master's in education. We are working together to combine the newest research and teaching methods with the tried and true. We hope our store provides you with very practical, exemplary activities.
We believe that students need to be active and engaged. Curriculum is interactive and the classroom is a busy place with students moving, working, and learning throughout the day.
