“If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar-
A hope-er a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For We have some magic tales to spin
Come in, Come in!”
– Shel Silverstien
Here at The Playground Chronicles, we believe that Play is the work of the child.
As Childcare Providers and parents, we believe childhood is magical. Therefore, we fight vehemently to keep it so- especially in a world where children grow up way too fast. When I first opened my in home daycare, Lauren’s Little Ones, I was running blind. My hope for The Playground Chronicles is to provide an online home as resource and referral for Daycare Providers, Nannies, Early Childhood Education Specialists, and of course, Parents. The best thing about the Playground Chronicles is that we aren’t perfect. No Insta-Perfect pictures or preachy advice. Just real parents and caregivers, telling stories and sharing knowledge from real life. This is a place for parents. This is a place for providers. So, if your work is children, then your place is here.
