Our Week: Farming Theme 2

A Typical Day for a South African Preschooler


I thought, since we have so many readers from around the globe, to write a post on a typical day in a South African preschooler’s life. It might be interesting to see how we differ or relate to other countries’ preschool routines. I might just want to add that it does differ a bit from […]
