In 1997, I became frustrated with the lack of free online resources for early childhood educators. I did not have the budget to go out and buy a massive library of preschool curriculum resources. I decided to do something about it. The first version of The Perpetual Preschool was published on a free page provided by AOL. I posted all of the ideas that I successfully used in my classroom. I encouraged experts, like yourselves, to share what worked in their classrooms. Since that time, The Perpetual Preschool has changed and evolved into a huge resource. Now, there are more than 16,000 ideas that you can use in your classroom.
