A Word From Jacqueline Covey

"I am thrilled to be sharing some activity ideas for your family. While the months and years go quickly, the hours and days can go very slowly. I hope these activities will help you fill the hours and days in meaningful ways. Let's capture your preschoolers' imaginations, pique their curiousity, and excite them to learn and play even more tomorrow."
