Kindergarten Best Practices
By Jane Somers | Office Manager
Before joining the Plum team I spent 10 years teaching kindergarten, which also involves a lot of creativity, play, and big personalities. So yeah, not that different. As I see it, those early lessons in school are the most important, and play out almost daily during the production process at Plum.
- You can build a cool block tower on your own, but the magic happens when you pull together with your friends. We all have different strengths, and when pooled, they multiply into superpowers.
- Work needs to be balanced with play, and sometimes what looks like “just playing” produces the best learning and most creative results.
- Everything works better if you make lots of friends and share the toys, equipment, and time with the editors.
- Snack time keeps us focused, and birthday cake always tastes better if your friends sing to you first.
- Family is of the utmost importance.
And yes, we still have the kid who:
- ~ can’t sit still
- ~ needs things organized just so
- ~ takes things apart to see how they work
- ~ obsesses over the weather forecasts
- ~ loves comic books
- ~ is the class clown
…but fortunately Plum has no paste eaters, tattletales, or biters.
