    I have an interview for a Head Start pre-primary teaching position next week. The lowest grade that I've taught is 2nd, so I'm reading up as much as I can on teaching pre-school. Can anyone recommend any books or web sites? Thank you!!

    Head start is low income families that can't afford preschool so make sure you look into that. I teach preschool it's a very challenging age group! They usually learn through centers and playing. There isn't a lot of formal teaching and you will have to do circle time every day! Just research your states preschool curriculum and bench marks. Message me if you have questions.

    Head Start has it's own rules and regulations and unless it's within your state school system you should be able to find what you need to know on this website. I teach at Head Start so if I can I'll answer any questions you have.

    Oh and it's all about redirection. I know in our area we can only redirect, no time out or clipping up and down. It can be tough.

    Go to the head start website so you will be informed on the program. I taught H.S. for 10 years and love the program. Good luck!
