Q: What does FAQ mean? A: FAQ means Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What browser do you recommend for viewing this site? A: I highly recommend Microsoft Internet Explorer. While this site was designed with all browsers in mind, it works best with Internet Explorer.
Q: Why do you have ads on every page? They’re annoying! A: While the ads may appear to be annoying, they are very necessary to the continuation of this site. This site runs on a “FREE” basis. The ads are what helps us keep this status. This site is done in my free time. I am a preschool teacher and like any teacher my time is limited. Much of the cost to run this site comes from the ads. But most months it is not even close to enough to cover the sites overhead. The rest comes from my pocket. I do this to keep the site free for all. Without the ad revenue I would have to close down the site. My intention when starting the page was to keep it free for all to use.
Q: All these ads are driving me nuts. A: First, you need to be specific on “all these ads”. While to someone ad can be “all these ads” others may be talking about 10. If you are seeing more than 4 banners (A small and a large across the top, a box above the menu, and a large across the bottom.), and the occasional pop-up on the site you may have a spyware program on your computer. There should never be more than that. If you are getting hit with 3+ popups a page, then you most definitely have spyware on your computer. These ads are not coming from us, our keywords are just triggering them. You can download a free copy of Ad-Aware to get rid of these hidden programs. http://www.lavasoftusa.com

Q: I am having trouble printing. When I print all I get is the ad. A: Unfortunately this sometime happens with certain ads. But it is fixable. Either you can use one of the ways to print above, or you can simply refresh button on your browser. Another ad will appear. Then you should be able to print.
Q: This ad does not seem appropriate for this page. What do I do? A: I have set strict guidelines for the type of ads Preschool Education will except. the short version of our guidelines are no pornographic, casino, or betting ads. I do make every attempt to check each and every ad that is placed on our site by our ad agency. However sometime I will miss one. If you find an ad that slipped by us and our filtering system, please email and let us know so we can take care of it ASAP. I will need details. So when email please be as specific as possible about the ad.
Q: The print is too small to read, what can I do? A: We set our print at a standard small print to accommodate all browsers. Again the answer to this question depends on your browser. Microsoft Internet Explorer: Using the tool bar at the top, press on View. This will bring a new menu down. Then press text size. A menu will open to the side. You can pick your text size from there. Netscape: Using the tool bar at the top, press on View. This will bring a new menu down. Then press increase font as many times as needed. Back to the top
Q: Your site is great but it’s not enough. I need more themes. A: This site can only be as great as the visitors make it. While I have many teaching ideas and many original ideas, there are still themes I have not done personally. If each visitor sends in a few ideas a year, we should be bursting with new themes in no time. To share an idea go here. We just ask that you check and make sure the ideas is no already on the site. That will save us all a lot of time. Back to the top

Q: I want to start a daycare, can you help me? A: Unfortunately, I can not help. I have never opened my own center and really would not even know where to tell you to start. Since each state has it’s own laws I can not help there either. But if you need lesson plans and ideas for your new centers classrooms, we are here for you. I have recently been told about a program that might help. Start A Daycare. You can find and purchase this program here for a very reasonable price. Start A Daycare Back to the top
