A place to celebrate our successes and talk about some of the challenges of being early childhood educators.

I am curious about training for extreme behavior. For example what is the protocol for biting, spitting, kicking punching teachers and/or students at your school? Ages 3-7

Did anyone in pre-K teach or going to teach black history? I really want to spend sometime on this. But it seems there is not a lot out there. Need some ideas.

How many of you out there in pre k land use creative curriculum? Would you like more resources that are ready made to support it?

How do you deal with a child who will pee on themselves for the attention? I have a student who does this two-three times a week. I have never experienced his before, and not sure what to do.

Curious to know how many are both the EC teacher and the general curriculum teacher for their PReK class. (And are you the IEP case manager for your students.)

Why are we not treated as the professionals we are??? We are questioned on every turn. Given scripts to read and observed more than fish in a bowl???

What is the rules and regulations in Ny state on having the majority of a class that are 3 yrs old and you have one 2yr old. Would this be considered a preschool room or a toddler room?

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a walk-on song for preschool? I'd like to choose one or two that we could hopefully play every day for the rest of the school year.

Does anyone use a Transdisciplinary Play-Based System in their Pre-K or K programs for assessment and/or screening purposes? If so, may I ask you some questions please?
