This Preschooling at Home website is sponsored by Morningstar Educational Network, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization.   Despite widely held beliefs that preschool is important to a child's academic performance, research shows the opposite.  A young child's informative years require the love, care, stability and a strong mother-child bond for a child to develop a healthy emotional, social, and spiritual life and to excel in later academics.  Please take the time to read the articles and write us if you have any questions.

The extended absence from their parents also appears to heighten behavioral problems, such as a lack of cooperation, sharing and engagement in classroom tasks, most notably among kids from more affluent families.

This study - as well as many others - warns policy-makers and parents of the implications of isolating children from their parents at such a young age. read more ______________________________
