Every topic featured is applicable and helps me refocus on my vision and clarify my goals. It provides the tools needed to help me feel grounded with the work I do everyday. It's a tremendous resource that can benefit all child care professionals if they reach out and use it. Don't reinvent the wheel; it has been "invented" for you..."
