I say I’m one of the lucky ones. I grew up in a family of educators. My father recently retired as a superintendent after 42 years in Georgia public schools. My maternal grandmother was a Pre-K teacher, my paternal grandmother a librarian.
When I think about Ms. Cathy at Westmore Day Nursery, I distinctly remember things like sitting “criss-cross apple sauce” during story time. I remember where we used to eat and where we took naps on our cots. I even remember Ms. Cathy’s back rubs. They were the best.
After taking a big heaping serving of early learning, now is the time to sit back and relax after the big meal. The fifth annual Georgia Pre-K Week, October 5-9, has officially come to an end. Georgia Pre-K Week celebrates the importance of early education in laying the foundation for all future success, in school, in the workforce and in life.
