Description:     
Freeing children's creative potential

What can children gather from the treasured world of childhood that will enrich their adult lives? Educator Betty Peck celebrates the power of Kindergarten to help children find their creativity and imagination – opening the door to a passionate relationship with learning. The result is an essential resource for teachers and parents who want to give their children a meaningful education.

Using vivid case studies from her own experience, and research from Froebel and other early years pioneers, Betty Peck demonstrates how a holistic, loving approach to pre-school education opens the door to:

  • Enabling creativity, awareness, wonder and discovery
  • Meeting the spiritual and physical growth needs of young children
  • Storytelling, movement, ring time and play
  • Celebrating festivals and the seasonal round
  • Creating play gardens to discover nature's secrets
  • Involving families and communities

Betty Peck has over 50 years experience as a Kindergarten teacher and consultant in mainstream education. She was the 1985 Saratoga Citizen of the Year and founder of the Saratoga Community Garden, an educational organic garden for school children.
