Voices from the Field

"Preschool teachers and administrators have been extremely enthusiastic about implementing PEEP and the Big Wide World science units in their classrooms and programs. Some teachers  have been surprised at how long children have stayed interested in and excited about ramps, shadows, sound, and color.  Not only are children exploring each unit for 3-4 weeks or more, they continue to revisit previous units even after new ones have been introduced. Teachers and administrators have both praised the PEEP teacher’s guide, saying that its suggestions for learning goals, preparation activities, materials, and indoor and outdoor explorations provide clear guidance and yet are flexible enough to fit the needs of individual programs. Program administrators, acting as coaches, have been delighted about going into classrooms and observing children deeply engaged in exploratory play, describing their observations, and coming up with their own science ideas. Administrators are also noticing that teachers are becoming increasingly skillful at asking children more thought-provoking questions and documenting children’s work.  One administrator remarked that these are teaching skills that extend beyond science and can support children across all of the domains of development and learning." -Cindy Hoisington, Education Development Center Inc.
