Thank you, thank you, and thank you for your article "Documentation in Early Childhood Programs Gone Mad!" I have truly become disillusioned by the amount of documentation that I am supposed to produce to show that my assistant and I provide a quality program. I have for along time felt the world had gone mad over documentation as every week someone was out there pushing their own notoriety regarding how best to produce accountable links to quality. I have become so disillusioned I am personally considering moving from early childhood to primary school teaching even though my first love is preschool. I am concerned where we are going and wonder when is it going to stop; when are the children going to return as our number one focus and priority, not our ability to produce reams of pretty paperwork to impress bureaucrats!
