Frenchette Rosemond: “Everyone smiles in the same language”

 “Everyone smiles in the same language.”

Children should be exposed to a positive atmosphere. Early Childhood Educators should use every opportunity as a time to teach. With this in mind, children create many of the opportunities throughout the course of the day. Answer questions at their eye level so that they are able to make eye contact and then smile. “You can light up a room just by smiling.”
