Description
To a four-year-old watching bulldozers or chasing butterflies in a field, the world is awash with promise. Children come hardwired to learn in virtually any setting and about anything. Yet in today's preschools and kindergartens, learning has been reduced to scripted lessons and suspect metrics that undervalue children's intelligence while overtaxing their growing brains.
