Seven days into the New Year in 2015, I was exasperated that despite my best efforts, situations in my life continued to appear to be going down instead of up. Leaving for work that morning I looked up at the sky and questioned my purpose out loud, wondering if anything I did even mattered. I certainly didn't expect an answer or anything remotely close to what happened next. But, less than a minute later, as my car slid towards a tree, a disembodied voice gently announced, "Time to go" and I was pulled out of my body before my life would come to an end. What followed was a life altering journey into simultaneous realities where time ceased to exist. The information revealed to me will give you a new perspective on reality. Also included are practices to help you discover, align and transform your energy awareness and well being.

This book guides parents through the process of selecting a quality pre-school for their child from the perspectives of parent, teacher and pre-school administrator. From making the economic decision to send the child to pre-school and figuring out how to pay for tuition at your favorite one, to establishing the pre-school search timetable, through the many factors that make for a quality pre-school experience, all the way to the child's first day of pre-school and beyond, this little book covers many considerations for parents. It includes a wealth of pre-school criteria for the parents to weigh (and thoughts on how to judge each pre-school against the criteria), born of over 20 years of commitment to pre-school excellence.

Moreover, it will help you decipher the answers you receive from the prospective pre-school's staff.
