In Mrs. Tully's Room makes a quiet but powerful case for the pedagogical skill and psychological insight that childcare providers—so often underpaid and undervalued—can bring to their work. It also emphasizes how warm, quasi-familial, even mentoring relationships can develop between childcare providers and their preschool families.
