Parents do not want their children to lose at the starting gate, so many families are willing to bare the financial burden of early education through 'learning' toys, media programs and early tutoring aimed at boosting cognitive development. In 1998, the early education sector was a modest market. In 2001, it was considered to have reached 'blow out phase.'
Sadly, our cultural pressure on early childhood comes at the expense of the one thing that will truly lead to a child reaching his full academic potential. The one thing that most effectively breeds curiosity, problem-solving and a love of learning and discovery. The one thing that supports authentic, vital social and relational development. P-L-A-Y.
Thank you for joining us each week to help honor and protect that which is most vital to a healthy, balanced childhood.
