Parents Talk

I am so impressed with these Preschool Power videos that I have actually used them as training for my Family Home Care Providers. These videos do not 'talk down' to children, and they encourage confidence and self-reliance. Especially popular seem to be the kitchen activities. I, myself, sometimes am astounded that such young children can accomplish so much! I encourage you to keep producing these programs they are a real hit with both adults and children, and in the face of a major void in children's programming they are a welcome sight!"

I teach a preschool class, and use the Preschoolpower! Programs all the time. The children relate to them and just love them...
-- Saundra Edmond, Burgettstown, PA

I borrowed a copy of Preschool Power! From my neighbor, and my nearly-3-year-old really latched on to it. It's amazing: that's all she wants to watch, and all the time! She really loves those little children. And I discovered that she learned to put on her jacket all by herself!"
---- Linda Rainone, Londenderry, NH

When my 15-month-old woke up cranky from her nap one day I turned on the TV and there wasPreschool Power! She just quieted right down and watched-fascinated by all those wonderful little kids. Now we prefer to use Preschool Power to TV. We limit the amount of TV our children watch and consider these videos valuable."

It's a wonderful series! My 3-year-old likes to watch all of them in a row now and has, in my opinion gained so much self-confidence he's convinced he can do anything."

My daughter was only 18 months when I ordered our first copy of Preschool Power! She loved it so much we kept getting more of them for her 'til we had the whole set. They're so different from anything else out there. They're absolutely unique! She's three now, and she still lovesPreschool Power!"
