Concerns about a preschool child's development

If you have a feeling that your child is less coordinated or isn’t at a milestone that you see your friends... it’s a natural thing for parents to want to do this. We always want to compare what our child does versus to the child next door. However, children develop at different rates and I feel like it’s more important to know your own child and if you do really deep down feel that something might be a little off, always ask the teachers. They’re with your child pretty much longer than you are as a parent sometimes and they do get to know your child a lot more. Always, always ask an expert. And I feel early intervention is the key. If you feel something is not quite right, go and seek the advice of an expert. And then get the help you need. Denial is never a good thing and it’s never an easy thing to do. But it is in the best interest of the child.

Preschooler Director

Australian native Renae Plant saved Los Angeles-based Camelot Preschool on February 14, 2008 along with a handful of parents who believed that Camelot should remain a community preschool. Over the years, Camelot has flourished under her leadership as owner/director. Renae improved the campus with eco-friendly bamboo floors, synthetic grass, themed sand castle and play structures. Her biggest accomplishment was turning a run-down shed, in record time, into an eco-friendly, open plan classroom with natural skylights and a special indoor/outdoor feel. Most recently she planned and added a Kindergarten Program to compliment the school and continues to implement new exciting parent involvement programs as well as Music, Spanish, Yoga and Sign Language.  She oversees the day-to-day running of Camelot as well as juggling her hubby Livinio and three kids, Ilan, Mateo and Deklan, (all of whom attended Camelot) and her bump maternity clothing line.
