    1) The purpose of educating teachers must be done, even though you think it does not help.
    2) if you were there and a teacher then you may or may have the right for an opinion.
    3) Stop blaming the school for lack of aducation, rather search with in you, how to beter your self and your children.

    I attended the early childhood program for the first time this year and was pleasantly surprised with every detail of the event. The back-to-back presentations covered a wide variety of pertinent and practical issues and were presented by people from different fields and perspectives. The networking that went on between teachers and directors was astounding with people sharing ideas, suggestions and struggles unabashedly. The program attracted intelligent and motivated teachers and Shluchos. The real question is, where were the CH teachers??? (There were a couple but definitely not from enough schools.) It was an invigorating and stimulating experience and this is coming from an open educational critic with a masters degree and 11 years of experience in a progressive Chabad preschool.

    Please consider coming next year and convince your children’s teachers to attend as well. If we want to see change in our community we need to educate and inspire ourselves and work together with other Shluchos and Mosdos so we can learn from each other.

    Much thanks to Rabbi Kaplan, Yocheved Schapiro and the other people who organized the conference.
