Transcription: 
When your child first comes home and tells you that someone doesn't want to play with them or doesn't want to be their friend, says mean things to them; it's important to be truthful about a situation and explain to them, this is real life. In real life, we as parents don't want to be friends with every parent we meet and vice versa. It's okay. It's really important to acknowledge their feelings and acknowledge that they might be feeling sad or how they feel. Explain to them that it's okay to go and choose other friends to play with and justify why that child may not have wanted to be their friend for that day. They might have needed some space. Teach them that it's okay to go and find new friends. That child may want to be their friend again soon. I'm sure they will.

Preschooler Director

Australian native Renae Plant saved Los Angeles-based Camelot Preschool on February 14, 2008 along with a handful of parents who believed that Camelot should remain a community preschool. Over the years, Camelot has flourished under her leadership as owner/director. Renae improved the campus with eco-friendly bamboo floors, synthetic grass, themed sand castle and play structures. Her biggest accomplishment was turning a run-down shed, in record time, into an eco-friendly, open plan classroom with natural skylights and a special indoor/outdoor feel. Most recently she planned and added a Kindergarten Program to compliment the school and continues to implement new exciting parent involvement programs as well as Music, Spanish, Yoga and Sign Language.  She oversees the day-to-day running of Camelot as well as juggling her hubby Livinio and three kids, Ilan, Mateo and Deklan, (all of whom attended Camelot) and her bump maternity clothing line.
