Is it crazy to love an iguana named Lana?

Perhaps, but the NAEYC Conference is less than a month away, and I am so excited for the opportunity to talk about her and the LANA preschool program! At the conference I will share how we have been successful implementing the LANA Preschool program at our center. We love it!

Before LANA, I never would have thought we’d be serving the children sweet potato smoothies for a snack….or that they would actually enjoy it! The LANA program has so
many wonderful activities and ideas to get children excited about eating fruits and vegetables, and amazingly they work! The teachers and I are even eating healthier…when we need a little snack, instead of reaching for the animal crackers, we head to the kitchen for leftover sugar snap peas! So you see, I love the iguana and what she has to offer, and I am looking forward to letting everyone know more about it!

At the NAEYC conference, I will talk about all the various components of the LANA preschool program, the ways you can modify it for your needs, tips on how it has worked for us, and then you’ll even have the opportunity to make and eat a LANA snack! I hope you join me!
