  • Rainy days can be a good thing!

    Thursday, April 11, 2019

    Even if you feel like you and your child are stuck in the house, maybe it’s a good time for some down time. Taking a break from a structured day can actually help your child retain what they learned! Our brains are amazing and use periods of rest or unstructured play to grow and make new connections.

  • Spring is here!

    Wednesday, March 20, 2019

    We’re gearing up for warmer weather around here. That means clothing changes once again. Try easing back into warm weather clothing slowly to help your child adjust. When we wear clothing that exposes our skin that means everything can touch us directly and may be too much for your child at first. If they need to wear long pants or sleeves, try and finding a lighter material so they don’t get too hot.

  • Learning about money is important for your child!

    Thursday, March 14, 2019

    We take it one step at a time and learn about the value of each coin or dollar, count and sort, and learn how to exchange money for items. When your child is ready we take small trips to the store to practice our skills in a public setting. These are valuable experiences that help them learn and grow!
