library month.pngLibrary Card Sign-up Month is held in September all across the country to remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

Library cards are free and provide residents with an almost unlimited number of books, movies, music, information sources and professional librarians who are there to help individuals find exactly what they need.

FOUR MYTHS ABOUT EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

1. Childcare providers are babysitters: Childcare is a profession and a very invaluable career. There is not just a quick course that someone takes to become qualified. Many childcare providers have dedicated their lives to this profession and have poured their heart and soul into their classes or programs. They are dedicated to raising up the next generation and are required to take continuing education units yearly.

2. The price of tuition is going directly into someone’s pocketbook: The truth is that tuition covers so many costs: supplies, food, furniture, curriculum, replacement, licensing fees, insurance, marketing costs, learning activities, dishes, paper products, safety supplies, office supplies, and more.

3. You get what you pay for: You have to look past dollar signs and look into the heart of a program! Some of the best teachers work in the most affordable programs, and that’s a great thing!

4. Men shouldn’t be working with young children: Some of the most noteworthy ECE figures who I love reading advice from are men: Tim from Taught by FinlandTeacher Tom, and Scott from Brick by Brick. And honestly, I think my husband rocks! He does a great job with fathering our own children, and all of my classes looked forward to the times he would pop in and say hello.

I hope that the next time you hear one of these myths, you will kindly explain that it simply is not true.
