Why I Started My Blog: 

The purpose of my blog is three-fold.

1.) To share insight as I begin my own research and studies of child development and early childhood education.

2.) To aggregate information from well-respected organizations, websites, publications and periodicals or raising happy healthy and successful pre-schoolers.

3.) To follow my transition from the world of finance to the early childhood education as I begin down the road to open a Nurery School.

I have launched from hedge funds to high chairs as a virtual classroom for reader to follow and learn as I work towards a brick and mortar version!
