Because preschool kids have amazing memories, so why not put them to use in ways other than memorizing the words to the most annoying cartoon songs?
Introductory lessons for this curriculum are only ONE MINUTE long! They are so simple that anyone can conduct the lessons after reading the detailed steps in the curriculum guide.
