What Early Child Care Should Be

My 5-year-old grandson just “graduated” from , a public preschool in NYC. This is what early child education should be. His warm, loving  teacher is a professional with a master’s degree, a good salary, excellent benefits, 15 years experience. The classroom is developmentally oriented, encouraging creative play, not pushing academics. This should be the future. Only public funding will make this possible.

Free 4-year-old preschool is not universal in New York City. Michael was fortunate to get into the one three blocks away.
