When a child’s life is full of sights, sounds, tastes, smells, textures, people, and places, he will learn. When he feels safe and loved, he’ll learn. When parents begin to recover from their own ideas of what learning should look like (what they remember from school) they will begin a new life of natural learning, too. — Sandra Dodd
Play. Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood. — Mr. Rogers
Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let you words heal and not harm.
