The preschool years are a time of immense growth and discovery, as children begin to unravel the mysteries of themselves and the world around them. In today's episode, we embark on a journey to understand the importance of nurturing these formative stages and empowering children to explore the depths of their own minds.

Joining us for this enlightening conversation is Dr. Tracy Gleason, a distinguished Professor of Psychology at Wellesley College. With her expertise in child development and a passion for understanding the intricacies of young minds, Dr. Gleason is the perfect guide as we delve into the fascinating world of preschool development.
