Book Information

Rituals and traditions in preschool programs have the power to connect children, families, and staff, foster a sense of belonging and create a positive learning environment based on kindness and connection.  This book answers the questions of why rituals and traditions are important and how teachers can incorporate them into their daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly plans to create a supportive, caring community.  As recommended by Dr Becky Bailey and Bev Bos, this book is one you want to add to your resource collection!  Jacky Howell can do a workshop session on this topic for your program.”
