MLK Day

Today we’re reflecting on Martin Luther King Jr. here at BumbleBee Childcare Software. If you are like me, you remember when MLK Day became a federal holiday. At the time, as an elementary school student, I think I was more focused a new holiday popping onto the calendar than understanding MLK’s life and accomplishments.

However, as I get older, I think MLK’s words and deeds become more and more inspirational. Some of them are especially relevant to children and education. In his “I Have a Dream Speech” he said:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Teaching children to respect each other and instilling strong character are some of the most important lessons teachers teach (also the hardest to teach).

In a way, I think MLK day has become more important as I have gotten older, despite rarely having the day as a formal holiday.

Does your preschool or childcare do anything special for MLK day?
