Who can tell me basic info about THEA? I can't find anything online!! What is the purpose, mission, etc and how do I learn more?? THANKS!

If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me Just PMed you!
Does anyone have personal experience with Emerson Waldorf School or Carolina Friends School? I have been to EWS several times but have not been able to visit CFS yet, so I'm curious. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
I know this is an older thread, but I wanted to say that we've been going to Triangle Family Dentistry right across Davis Drive from the Diapering Doula and they are super nice and very knowledgeable. Both dentists are great with our 5.5 year old too, and Sumitha Ahmed is the best hygienist I've ever had!
Like I had mentioned, I've been in the early childhood field for over 10 years so the foundation is not a concern. It's the moving forward part I'm unsure of. Reading a lot is not a problem. We own tons of books in a large variety and read several every day. We're also library addicts. Anyway, thanks for all of these suggestions/ideas! I have heard of several of them, but will look into the others. Oh... does anyone have specific experience with Phonics Pathways...

I have met several families who have moved to this area from NC, and they all seem to love it. I can imagine the humidity is a big change though. I have a terrible time with mosquitoes some years, but there was ways to help lessen the problem!
I am an early childhood professional and have plenty of knowledge about pre-reading literacy skills, but now that my daughter is 5.5 and showing interest in reading, I feel like I don't know where to start! I'm doubting my abilities! Does anyone have any idea for resources that do not push a child into reading too quickly? I am NOT interested in things like "Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons". I would like a more active approach relevant to her everyday...
