Welcome...

If you are new to this site, please send a contact form and we will include you on our distribution list.  We are adding material daily and will distribute links to downloadable resources at no charge.  Thank you.

Why...

Thank you for visiting KinderPlace.  It is for parents and teachers of the very young to get them Ready for school.  The preparation videos convey what should be done, explain why it is important, and demonstrate how to implement it. 

Why...

After 40+ years in early childhood development, all of which have been in Title I schools, it has become painfully evident that students are entering school less and less prepared than a decade ago.

Why...

The most important years in a child's development occur from 2-5 years old.  We are convinced that parents don't read the books on "How to Prepare Your Child for School" or treatises on early childhood development.  

Why...

A child's first teachers are the parents.  I cannot believe that a parent would abdicate that responsibility; but there is certainly a disconnect.  My sense is that many parents don't know what to do or where to start to facilitate their child's development.

What else...

Soon to come is Ready, Set, Go!™, a program designed for those committed to working directly with parents and their children: it's free of charge to volunteers, civic groups, churches, schools, teachers-anyone who has a calling to work with parents.

Under construction!

But we're gaining on it!
