If your 4 year old is still doing squiggle art to squiggle, it's the first form of writing, so you should keep encouraging your child to write no matter what it looks like. Tell them it's masterpiece. Children can't really grasp a pen until the fatty pad has left their hands, on the back of their hands. So even making play dough for example, everyone's just oh making play dough, that's actually using their hands, working their muscles, preparing them to actually be able to hold a pencil correctly. Until that's formed, your child won't be able to write as your know as correctly as you might want them to. But it's just important to keep encouraging to write and they will get there eventually

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.
