Educational Resources

Being a former teacher learning through play is very important to me. And it is fitting that I run an in-home daycare so I have ample opportunity to encourage my kiddos to learn through play. When I was teaching I loved to create resources for my classroom and that love hasn’t stopped. I just have a younger audience. Here are some of the activities that I use with my kiddos in Tot School. You can find the activities and centers I used in my Kindergarten Classroom my on Teaching Primary Page.
