My just 5-year-old daughter attends the most special preschool around. It is set among trees with a large area of grass, sandpit, vege patch and even chooks. It almost in the middle of the city but you wouldn’t know it. The staff are wonderful and all three of my kids have been through it. This quote has been on the wall since my first one started and I read it often. It is the perfect reminder that our kids are not in preparation for adulthood, they are here to enjoy being a child. This particularly resonates on a Friday afternoon after a big week when one of the children asks if we can get an ice cream and go to the park – I look at this sign and always say ‘yes’! The joy of childhood wins every time.
