Some of you might think, "This is a great idea. It's why our kids are so smart."
But I disagree. They spent so much time and energy "prepping" them for a grade they weren't even ready for yet. They literally were robbing the children of important play time. By allowing these young children to play all day long, they would already be learning everything they need to know. They would learn colors by finger painting; they would learn numbers by setting the table in the dramatic play area; and they would learn letters by taking orders for the pretend restaurant. Not to mention, by playing all day long, they will also learn communication skills, problem-solving skills, socialization (isn't that why we are so adamant to send our children to day care in the first place?), cause and effect, listening skills, sharing, empathy, consequences for their good/poor behavior, etc. etc. etc.
