PLNY Blog

by Mary Biggs, Director, Basic Trust Day Care

When I was asked to write an article on what it takes to run a good child care program for children under the age of five, I thought “What an impossible question. I want to answer it!”

I think the answer, like most things of any worth, is that it takes a really good idea. The right idea. A good and right idea is a rare thing. It is like a key that opens every door. It’s a hand that guides you through the darkest place. It sorts the wheat from the chaff. You can return to it again and again and it never stops providing answers, inspiration and wisdom.
 

by Steve Nelson, Head, The Calhoun School

Growing up in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, my knowledge of private schools was quite limited. I attended public schools, as did virtually everyone I knew. My friends and I used the grass lawns of the private Laurel School and University School as our touch football fields, often to the chagrin of the groundskeepers.
