I have a tremendous love of children and I place a high standard on learning. I believe children are an inspiration; each one different in their own way with so much to teach us. Early childhood is when children are developing the most and when learning is the greatest. This is where the importance should be placed as these early experiences with learning can really influence how a child looks at schooling in the future.
