I also think that the best place for a child 0-3 is with their parents & not in a classroom & for them to not have a curriculum beyond immersion in normal daily life of families. This normalcy and rhythm is what all our ancestors lived until age 7 or 8 when they began to be a larger part of working with the family. It is an ancient pattern and epigenetically rooted further than the more recent attacks on family. Evidence is mounting that preschooling is negative as well:
“If anything, preschool may do lasting damage to many children”
Expect great delight and diversions from things such as caterpillars, butterflies, earthworms and so on.
