I have been teaching kindergarten for 23 of my 25 years in education. I live in a very rural area; we are limited to three church preschools, Headstart, Hippy and an organization who works with young on speech, etc. My question is about public school preschool. Is there a link that could document success? I have talked to my principal about the need. While many of our children do go to preschool, we have many who have not. It has gotten to the point that kindergarten teachers are having to teach preschool skills, kindergarten skills and first grade skills-all in one year. I would be very interested in hearing from those who do have a preschool in their public school. My principal told me to research this and get back to him. Thanks!
