A note from Ann Olsen: Brain research has revealed the importance that early childhood education plays in a child’s life. A child’s brain develops and forms during the early stages of life (Birth to age 5). As educators, we have the awesome opportunity and responsibility to lay the foundation for a successful future for each child that enters our classroom. At the Aurora Co-op, our caring and nurturing teachers implement a play-based learning approach helping the students learn and grow in a way that is natural for them.
