Under #preschool there are a mix of child care providers and early childhood educators who post great classroom activities and giveaways. It’s sort of like a virtual version of the NAEYC conference with vendors, professionals and parents. Sometimes home school posts crossover into this stream of information. This community, largely untapped by school teachers and professionals, provides new ideas and a new perspective within the #preschool community.

Finally, there is the #prek Twitter stream. There can be crossover with the other two streams, but the #prek tag is primarily focused on public pre-k and policy, thanks in part to efforts of education advocacy groups like @PreKNow.
Here is one of the recent posts:
