+About Us+

It's a new day!! It's a whole new era!!
Welcome to what best practice looks like.

Welcome to sharing and show-n-tell. The advent of blogging and the cyber-community have brought us together on behalf of children as never before imagined. It is now possible to reach out, to weave together and share ideas from one side of the planet to the other -- with the mere click of a mouse. Voila!!

This collaboration is launched with a sense of enthusiasm and excitement over all things that will benefit young children and those who serve them. There are several common denominators that weave our community of contributing authors together. The first is an emphasis on excellence. The second is a delight and appreciation for all things "ART" related. The third is a shared joy in child-centered, child-directed, genuine play-based adventures.

Our group of contributors already consists of seasoned bloggers who are adept at all things related to the social networking era and others who are brand-new to the blogging concept. We have contributors that are respected authors and performers, classroom teachers and administrators, specialists on brain development and mental health from the ground floor up, from day number one. We have beloved international speakers and hard-working teachers from the front line. It's an incredible mix of talent!!! It's an incredible mix of perspective!!!

We are here to celebrate our strength in numbers. We are here to celebrate your contribution!! We are here to engage you with new ideas and remind you of old ones. We launch our collective blog from the international gathering of NAEYC 2011 held in Orlando.

Here are several of us gathered  together in Orlando, Nov 2011, beginning the brain-storming of what is to come at PreK + K Sharing!!! Front row from left-to-right: Connie Dow, Debbie Clement, Mimi Brodsky Chenfeld and Hugh Hanley. Back row: Enrique Feldman and Mary Jo Huff.
