At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, we recognize that reading to your child is one of the most effective ways to build the “language” neural connections in their growing brain as well as the strong base for cognitive development. Reading to your children has so many benefits and we encourage you to read with your child every day.
At Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, we recognize these tremendous benefits to children, and we strongly encourage and even expect parents to be involved in their child’s preschool education. One of the ways parents can be involved in their education is by reading to them aloud.
While many factors will influence how children perform in school during this fall, one of the most important factors is parental support. Showing your children that you’re excited about and supportive of their educational journeys, despite the added stress of COVID-19, will greatly influence how they react to their altered schooling this fall.
Toddlers can be tough—kids can be tough, teenagers too, but establishing rules for your toddler early promotes better behavior moving forward. Rules make doing the things parents like to do with their children fun and safe, whether that’s playing at a park, visiting toy stores, or even just having a nice breakfast at home.
Our Reggio Emilia-inspired curriculum, Creatively Shine™, consists of fun, engaging monthly themes like “Music and Movement” and “Heart Healthy Lifestyle.” The theme for May is “Gardening and Horticulture.”
The first word most children learn to read is their name. Which is why the letters that make up their name are often the first letters a child learns to identify. This activity is a super fun way to help your child identify certain letters and build their name.
