-Cherishing Childhood: The Low-Tech Parenting Podcast
I have been teaching for 25 years and every episode I learn something new or reflect on something I’m doing and wonder how I can improve on my interactions with the children in my care. This podcast is also entertaining and interesting to listen to...even when the topic seems to have nothing to do with children and everything to do with dogs, I end up learning something I can apply to my teaching by the end! :-)
Great for providers
As a fellow daycare provider, I definitely appreciate the honesty of this podcast. Not many people truly understand, these people do!!!
