Ancient proverb: A wise man builds a house by digging down deep and laying the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. One who is unwise builds a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete. This proverb reminds us that there is a distinct difference between merely surviving the changes around us and having the ability of thriving through them and growing because of them. The game of Jenga can help make an illustration to this point for quality improvements in early care and education settings.
