If you're a reader of this blog you certainly know how fervently I believe in play for young children, particularly in their early schooling. Still, I wish you could have seen my face -- and the way my jaw dropped -- when I read a post, dated yesterday, with the same title as this one.
The reason for my surprise? Here's the opening paragraph:
“Early childhood education” is a very popular major today. However, this concept is still unknown to many people. Early childhood education can be basically termed as “Learning through play”. This concept is adopted by many kindergartens.
Just a bit of a simplification! And, of course, these days, the reference to kindergartens is almost completely untrue.
If you're an early childhood professional, you might also want to know that, according to this post, compared to other careers available today, a career in early childhood education is "stress free."
It's not my intent to harangue the writer of the blog, but I did think a few of you might want to correct some of its misconceptions. You'll be glad to know there is a spot for comments!
