Before School
2 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

For many children my age before you went to school you got to learn some of the basics from Playschool. Watching with your Mother/Father you got to learn about imagination, stories, playing, colours, numbers etc. It was a sad day when this show was cancelled because it was like cancelling your childhood.
