  • New Classroom Tips for your Preschooler

    If your child is about to start preschool, her new classroom is the place where she will spend most of her time. This brand new setting can be a bit intimidating if your little one hasn’t yet met many of her classmates or her new teacher. Here are some great ways to get your child familiarized with this unfamiliar environment and make her feel right at home and ready to go to school every day. ... Read More

    If your child is about to start preschool, her new classroom is the place where she will spend most of her time. This brand new setting can be a bit intimidating if your little one hasn’t yet met many of her classmates or her new teacher. Here are some great ways to get your child familiarized with this unfamiliar environment and make her feel right at home and ready to go to school every day.

    Back to school teacher gifts

    Sometimes the teacher is the most intimidating part of a new classroom for a child. Help them get acquainted by having your child pick out a back to school gift that they will love. She can even write a card or draw a picture—teachers love homemade gifts! Have your child give her gift to her teacher herself, and before you know it, the ice will be broken.

    First of the year party

    Some teachers or preschools will start the new year with a first of the year party as a way to introduce everyone, parents and children alike. This is a get together you don’t want to miss! Enjoy the party and make sure that your little one makes some friends while you get to know parents and teachers. If the school doesn’t have its own party, consider throwing your own!

    As a way for you to help your child make new friends, make some of your own by getting to know the parents of your child’s new classmates. Most parents are thrilled to get to know other parents and may even be willing to start a carpool or weekly get-together. Consider a monthly classroom parent get-together or volunteer on the PTA—a fantastic way to meet more parents and also give back to the school and be involved in your child’s education. Soon enough, your little ones will be play-dating while you share parenting stories over coffee.

    When it comes to searching for the preschool to suit your child’s needs, it can feel like an impossible task. It may seem like there’s an endless list of things to consider before making this significant choice. Start off by bearing in mind these main factors to consider when choosing a preschool for your child.

    Proximity

    Find out what schools are in your area—start with knowing the possibilities. Ask around your circle about where others have taken their children. Getting advice from those who have already succeeded in this feat is a fantastic way to both learn a lot and ease your burden. It may also help to meet with an expert, like a referral agency or school counselor.

    Adult/child interaction

    Many schools will allow for you to tour the campus get to know the staff. Bring questions you have and make sure to notice how the kids play and cooperate with the teachers. You can even bring your child with you and see how they feel about the school—do they seem excited and eager, or are you searching for something else?

    Your top priorities

    Each child is unique and has individual needs—does your child thrive in a smaller classroom? Do they require specific things when it comes to what they eat and drink? Does your child need to be potty trained before beginning Pre-K? Once you know what your main needs are, it becomes easier to find these aspects in the school for you.

    Time Frame

    Knowing the time frame for when your child will be in school is vital to narrowing down the type of school to go to. Look at your family’s current routine. Most preschools go for a nine-month period on a weekly half-day schedule. However, if your child needs more care, some day- cares offer educational components, or some children go to pre-k for the morning and then spend time with a nanny or at a daycare.

    What does your gut say?

    If something feels off, or your new preschooler’s behavior indicates more than just first-day nerves, acknowledge it. Finding the right preschool for your children is imperative to their growth and happiness, and you above all else know what they need. Keep looking until you discover the place that feels correct for your child and pushes them to learn and grow the best—you will find it, and your child will thank you later!

  • Tips for Cooking with Preschoolers

    Cooking and baking will not only allow your preschooler to explore a new hobby, but it will also give them a boost of confidence as they learn to master a brand new skill.

    Cooking and baking will not only allow your preschooler to explore a new hobby, but it will also give them a boost of confidence as they learn to master a brand new skill. Cooking with kids can be a blast, and there are ways to do it without having a major mess to clean up at the end. Check out our ideas below!

    Make an apron.

    If you have a creative kiddo on your hands, one cooking-related activity to try is decorating aprons or chef hats together. You can find basic, solid-colored aprons (for kids and adults) at most craft stores. Pick up some fabric paint and decorate away! Then you can wear your aprons whenever you cook or bake together in the future.

    Taste the flavors.

    Learn to identify different flavors together! Set up four small bowls, one filled with salt, one with honey, one with pepper, and the last with lemon juice. Take turns taste testing each ingredient and describe them as salty, sweet, sour, spicy, or bitter. Then incorporate these flavors into whatever you plan on cooking!

    Create a fruit kabob.

    Fruit kabobs are easy and fun for kids to make. Slice up a variety of fruits into small square pieces, such as bananas, strawberries, cantaloupe, or honeydew. Next, take some bamboo skewers and start creating your kabobs!

    Give your preschooler a task in each step.

    From deciding on a dinner plan to purchasing the groceries to preparing the meal in your own kitchen, involve your child in every step. They will love the opportunity to participate in the “grown up” things you do, and it’s a great opportunity for the two of you to bond while also teaching your little one how to cook.

    Your preschooler may be hesitant to try certain foods, but involving them in the cooking process just might motivate them to give those mysterious veggies a try! Even trying new foods together will encourage your preschooler to branch out and give new flavors a chance. Get cooking!

    Roses are red, violets are blue, we love poetry, and your child should too! Poetry is beneficial for preschool children in many ways. It gives them an appreciation for literature and shows them that writing (and rhyming) can be fun. Here are three fun ways to teach your preschooler about poems.

    Start reading poetry!

    Read poetry to your preschooler at least once a week. Choose fun and familiar verses such as the traditional Mother Goose nursery rhymes. Or, you can check out A Light in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends, two wonderful poetry books written by Shel Silverstein.

    Additionally, One Fish Two Fish, Green Eggs and Ham, and The Cat in the Hat are three classic poems written by Dr. Seuss, who is famous worldwide for his children’s literature. By familiarizing yourself with poetry, your little one will be much more open to reading and writing it themselves. You can even practice reciting the poems together line by line.

    Practice, practice, practice.

    Choose easy, one-syllable words and have your child come up with rhyming words (bat, hat, cat, sat, etc.). Combine the words to make silly poems. Don’t seek perfection—keep it light-hearted and fun!

    Use other books.

    Use an I-Spy book as a launching board and make up funny poems about items on the page. For example, if there is a clock in the picture, you can go from there (sock, lock, tock). Involve the whole family for some fun times around the dinner table!

    At the end of the day, it’s important to keep your exploration of poetry fun and enjoyable. Young children have such vivid imaginations, and poetry can be the perfect creative outlet!

    Caring for your community is a wonderful thing to do year-round, and Earth Day provides the perfect opportunity for parents to teach their preschool children about the importance of keeping the environment clean.

    Earth Day was created in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. Senator Nelson was extremely passionate about the environment, and believed society should recognize its importance. Thus, April 22 was declared Earth Day.

    Each year, Americans come together on this day to clean up their communities and make positive, environmental-friendly changes in their own homes. If your preschooler is starting to wonder why you recycle certain items and throw away others, or why you turn off the lights when you leave a room, you can teach them all about Earth Day and set a positive example with three simple words: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

    Reduce

    You can reduce the amount of garbage produced in your home in several ways. When purchasing groceries, try to buy bulk items that are packaged in recyclable materials. Aim to avoid disposable items such as paper cups, napkins, and plates.

    Reuse

    Carry your own travel mug when buying coffee, reuse durable tote bags when purchasing groceries, and try to repair broken items before you throw away and replace them.

    Recycle

    Aluminum cans, milk cartons, newspapers, oh my! If it can’t be reused, it can most likely be recycled. Get into the routine of separating trash that can be recycled from items that can’t, and before you know it, recycling will be second nature.

    With these waste-management tips, you and your children can actively take part in the ongoing attempt to keep our planet healthy and clean. By showing your preschool children how to reduce waste, reuse goods, and recycle certain items, you can instill in them a life-long passion for the planet.

    Indoor play dates can be a lot of fun, and there are so many other things to do with your preschool child besides turning on a movie and consuming more media. Check out these four activity ideas that can be done inside with no electricity required.

    Read books.

    Read books and draw pictures of the characters and storyline. You can essentially have your little one draw a book report of the books that you read together. Some kids listen better when their hands are busy with a project, so if your preschooler is like this, give him paper and crayons to draw out the things that they’re hearing you read.

    Play hide-and-go-seek.

    If you play with your children, they will have a blast. If need be, mark off specific hiding territory in the house to keep it safe, and then run and hide! You can keep the lights off and make it even more fun to play.

    Play board games.

    Pull out the board games and cards because there are so many games that every preschoolers can learn to play. Chutes and Ladders or Go Fish are two games that were made for all ages. You can also teach them how to play Tic-Tac-Toe, and they will use this game to begin learning strategy and analytical skills from a young age.

    Build forts.

    Build blanket forts, and play I Spy together as you listen to the rain pour outside. Blanket forts are fun for all ages, and I Spy is a game that can be used to strengthen color recognition and processing skills in children.

    Try out these indoor activities before you resort to movies and video games to keep them occupied during those long dreary days. Always remember that it’s perfectly fine to send your little ones out in the rain if they have the proper clothing to puddle jump in the yard. If the energy levels get a little too high, put on the rubber boots and trench coats and go outside to sing in the rain!

    At the beginning of each year, people across the world set goals, both big and small. Some stick with their goals and achieve success, while others get burnt out halfway through January and return to their original habits.

    Teaching your youngster about setting goals is a wonderful thing for many reasons. It gives them the opportunity to strive for their dreams and allows parents to learn more about their children’s interests, strengths, and talents. Here is how you can teach your preschooler how to set goals for 2017 and, most importantly, how to stick to them.

    Explain the importance of goal setting: Setting goals creates motivation, provides accountability, and helps one establish a clear vision and focus for what they want to achieve. However, goal setting is equally important for children. It gives them confidence, creates a sense of purpose, and improves self-awareness. Before helping your child set a specific goal, explain to them the significance behind it. Encourage them to reflect on their past achievements and potential areas to work on, whether it’s improving in school or nurturing friendships and family relationships.

    Set a positive example: Your little one thinks the world of you and looks up to you as the ultimate role model. Watching you stay determined and achieve success will encourage your child to follow in your footsteps, which is why it is so important to set an example. When discussing 2017 goals together, share some of your own personal goals and explain how you plan to achieve them. Then, do your best to actively pursue your goals in front of your child to show them what commitment looks like.

    Create a Goal Jar: Cut out small slips of paper and write one goal on each slip. From learning to ride a bike, to sharing with siblings and friends, your little one can write as many or as few as they want. Put the pieces of paper into a jar and place it somewhere in your child’s room where they can see it every day. At the end of the year, the two of you can sit down and re-read each goal that was set. This is a fantastic way to encourage self-reflection in your child while praising them for their successes and guiding them through areas of improvement.

    Remember to start small and continue to guide your child toward their goals throughout 2017. Giving them small tasks to do around the house or helping them work on their strengths and weaknesses will establish a goal-setting habit that they can utilize as they develop and grow older.

    Routines are the best way to make sure that your child has a successful day at preschool. We know that things happen, and no one can stick to a schedule perfectly, but avoiding a highly fluctuating schedule is beneficial for young children who are learning the new routine of school life. Here are three ways that you can help them avoid some common preschool struggles.

    First, make sure that their basic needs are met. They need plenty of sleep to feel well rested in the mornings, so make sure they have a consistent bedtime routine that they can rely on and stick to every night. Fill them up with a big breakfast every morning if they are big eaters, or pack a protein-filled quick snack to eat on the way to school if they’re not hungry in the morning. Just make sure that they have the nourishment that they need so they can be ready to take on a big day of learning.

    Second, it is important to know that each child is different. They all have their unique personalities and learning styles. Knowing and understanding these can help you to understand your child and the best way to get through to them. What is normal for one child may not be normal for another. Learn your child’s unique style, help them to embrace who they are, and help them to learn according to the way that is most beneficial to them.

    Teaming up with teacher for maximum success is a great way to stay involved with the school and the things your child is learning. Communicate any concerns that you may have about your child, and be willing to listen to any thoughts that your teacher may have or anything that they may have seen in your child throughout the day.

    Last, remember that nothing can replace the love that you have for your child, and if you see that your child is struggling, making sure they feel loved is one of the most important things you can do for them. Let them know that their struggles are normal and that you are still proud of them no matter what!

    Holiday shopping can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Kids send wish lists to Santa that include everything they’ve ever seen on the store shelves, and parents are left wondering how much is too much, and where all of the newest toys and gadgets are going to be stored after the emotional high of the holidays wears off. 

    It really can be simple for you and fun for your child. Avoid mindless spending by considering these 4 things.

    • Want

    Of course, they want everything, so be strategic and think of something that your child is really passionate about. An addition to his killer Lego collection or maybe a fancy doll house for her stuffed animal family could be better ideas than a random toy that caught their eye that one time.

    • Need

    You know what your child needs, so what better time than the holidays to finally get it! It could be a new bath towel set, or cool organization shelves for their room. But the important thing is that it’s something they’re going to use on a regular basis, so they’ll have a reminder of the holidays all year round.

    • Wear

    Something to wear! This can be those light-up sneakers they’ve wanted for ages, a shirt with their favorite super hero, or maybe a pretty dress that makes her feel like a princess. This will probably be their favorite gift of all, and they will want to wear it 8 days in a row so they can show it off to everyone. Good thing it will be holiday break…

    • Read

    Pick a classic and educational book that can be read over and over. Start building a library for your child, and choose books that have lasting meaning. (Don’t pick anything too cheesy because, remember, you’re going to be reading it to them probably 50 times a week.) The Giving Tree, Caps for Sale, and Goodnight Moon are great options.

    Tweak the list to meet your personal preferences, but avoid some of the stress by having a plan! Something they want, something they need, something they can wear, and something that they can read covers all of your bases. Shopping can be as fun as giving, given enough preparation and thought. The holidays are a jolly time!

    A positive attitude has great physical, mental, and emotional benefits for adults and children. Parents have an amazing influence on children with the ability to make tough situations smooth and hurtful circumstances better. A positive attitude can change everything for children in daycare, childcare, preschool, and beyond.

    Helping your child maintain a positive attitude is an intentional act of focusing on the positive aspects of your child’s personality and talents. It involves looking for a kind word of affirmation and helping your child gain a better perspective through difficult situations. If your child’s sports team loses a game, a positive parent might respond, “I know that was a tough loss, but I like the way you kept trying. You are getting so much better.”

    When you maintain a positive attitude toward your child, you will help shape your child’s perspective and overall attitude. Here are a few additional ways you can help your child maintain a positive attitude.

    1. Use positive correction. It’s normal for a young child to require guidance and correction. A two-year-old learns to say, “No.” A toddler may hold a precious possession, refusing to let go. A preschooler may not want to do a particular learning activity at school. When the behavior is a part of normal growth, use your positive response to encourage your child in her growth, and teach her the new expectations for her age.

    2. Say positive words. If your child makes a poor choice, respond in a manner that communicates your disappointment in the decision without belittling the child. Mistakes are a part of every child’s growing process. Give them room to make mistakes as they grow, and lovingly correct them along the way.

    3. Maintain a positive attitude. When you focus on your child’s talents, gifts, and abilities, it’s easier to respond in a manner that helps your child focus on her positive abilities as well.

    4. Encourage and affirm. Feelings of insecurity and uncertainty can lead to negative feelings and problem behavior. When this happens, assure your child that she is loved unconditionally, even though you have expectations and boundaries.

    5. Be honest. It’s easy to avoid the truth in an effort to be positive, but your child will appreciate honesty when delivered in a loving and supportive manner.

    6. Involve extended family and friends. Make an effort to allow your children to spend time with your positive relatives and friends. They can be an excellent support and a confirmation.

    When you combine positive parenting at home with the same commitment in a childcare, daycare, preschool environment, the results are even better.

    Before the weather gets unbearably hot (as we know it will in the TX summer) get outside with your toddler or preschooler and go on a fun family picnic! While the idea of having small children in wide open spaces may sound too exhausting, you can eliminate some of the stress with good planning. Anytime you leave the house with your kiddos, a great rule of thumb is to keep the outing as simple as possible. Cramming too many activities into one afternoon can lead to grumpy children and an exhausted mom.

    1. Location, Location, Location – When deciding where to picnic start by doing it at a familiar place. You could even start in your own backyard or at a friend’s house. Being familiar with your surroundings will give you peace of mind to be able to enjoy yourself. Once your kids are older or whenever you are more comfortable, venture out to a local park or zoo for your picnic festivities.

    2. Bring a Friend – Children almost always do better when they have friends to play with. Even introverted children appreciate the company of another child to play with outside. Being outside is the perfect place to spark imagination so having a friend explore with your child makes it even more fun! Plus, having another adult to watch the kiddos means you will have a chance to talk to a grown-up and have another set of eyes looking out for your child as you look after theirs.

    An Easter Egg Hunt can be a fun event for the whole family, but did you know it can also be an educational opportunity for your child? Here are six creative ways your child can learn through an egg hunt:

    1.Toddlers Can Learn Colors

    Before letting your toddler loose to find as many plastic eggs as possible, tell your toddler only to collect a specific color or colors of eggs. This will help your toddler distinguish between different colors and make the game more challenging!

    2.Toddlers Can Learn Shapes

    If you’re creating your own egg hunt, fill plastic eggs with different shaped objects. After the eggs are all found, reward your child for naming each of the shapes found in his or her eggs.

    3.Preschoolers Can Learn Numbers

    If you’re creating your own egg hunt, use a permanent marker to number the plastic eggs before hiding them. Challenge your children to find the eggs in order from 1 to 20, or 1 to 100 if you’re that ambitious!

    Is your child’s back talking becoming a problem? Are you tired of hearing “No! You do it!” from your toddler or preschooler? There may be something you can do to help curb those annoying, whiny, temper tantrums.

    Instead of responding by saying “You’ll do it because I said so” or “Don’t ever talk to me like that!” there are other ways to help your child learn to disagree with you respectfully. The best way to stop back talk is to provide your child with some independence – but within your own limits. Kids of all ages need a sense of personal power to make their own choices and express their differences in opinions with parents. When parents make all the decisions for them, children naturally want to lash out, and so they do — with words and sometimes, physical aggression.

    So how can parents teach their children to disagree respectfully? Read the full article here: How to Stop Back Talking Without "Because I Said So"

    As your infant begins to develop, targeted mental stimulation needs to be provided for proper development of your child’s five senses. Mastering the five senses is accomplished through sensory stimulation, which encourages a child to grow and develop. Sensory stimulation toys are ideal to aid in this development. Here, we discuss how sensory stimulation toys can help your infant’s healthy development:

    Traditional mobiles

    While digital toys can be useful for a child’s development, a traditional mobile hung above the crib is a more effective sensory tool for babies. A mobile provides a variety of different shapes and colors for an infant to observe and to begin to recognize. Some offer chimes, music or other sound effects, that stimulate sight, hearing and even touch, though infants should always be supervised when handling any toy. Be sure to remove the mobile before leaving your child to sleep in the crib, as they are considered to be hazardous with an unsupervised child.

    High contrast squeaky toys

    Toys with highly contrasting colors, such as black and white, and that make noise when pressed or that can be wound up, are beneficial for stimulating the senses of sight, hearing and touch in infants. The contrasting colors help your child differentiate between colors and shapes and enhances cognitive development.

    Other toys

    Some other toys to consider include rattles, for developing sound and touch, and soft stuffed animals for developing touch and motor skills. As your infant grows, you can add other toys such as plastic keys on a ring, baby mirrors and soft books with sounds. Music is very helpful for infant development, so look for educational toys that have a variety of sounds.

    For infant care and early childhood development that you can trust, contact Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of League City, Texas. We offer specialized child care services that include our exclusive Brain Waves™ Curriculum.

    A developmental milestone is an ability that is achieved by most children by a certain age. Developmental milestones can involve physical, social, emotional, cognitive and communication skills such as walking, sharing with others, expressing emotions, recognizing familiar sounds and talking.

    While most of these milestones typically take place during a certain window of time, parents and caregivers must remember that each child is unique. These developmental abilities also tend to build on one another. More advanced skills such as walking usually occur after simpler abilities such as crawling and sitting up have already been achieved.

    Just because one child began to walk by eleven months of age does not mean that another child is "behind" if he still is not walking at 12 months. A child generally begins to walk anytime between the ages of 9 and 15 months, so anytime between those ages is considered normal. If a child is over 15 months and still cannot walk, the parents might consider consulting with a doctor or developmental specialist to determine if some type of developmental issue is present. It is generally best to be patient, and not apply undue stress on either yourself or your child so they can peacefully develop at their own pace.

    At Kids R’’ Kids Learning Academy of League City we place a high priority on our brain development program, which is aimed at stimulating each child’s brain, and aids in reaching the above mentioned milestones. Milestones go hand in hand with brain development. Below we have put together some general information for you about these developmental milestones.

    At Zero to Six Months

    Milestones are generally based around a child’s age. At a certain age, most children should be able to accomplish certain tasks. From birth to six months, your child will most likely be able to do the following:

    • Detect differences in pitches and volume
    • See objects clearly
    • Recognize familiar faces
    • Begin to imitate facial expressions

    Targeted stimulation of your child’s brain will aid in accomplishing these milestones. There are many ways of doing this, including: reading to your child, home exercises and a healthy diet.

    Six Months to One Year

    At this point your child will probably begin to respond and will explore more. During this period most children should be able to do the following:

    • Sit without support
    • Learn to pull up to a standing position
    • Clap and play games like peekaboo

    Do not get frustrated if your child is not doing all of these things, patience is important. If you are concerned about your child and the achievement of developmental milestones, contact your family physician for guidance.

    At our Learning Academy, utilizing our “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy, we nurture each child with hugs, love, and one-on-one personal attention. Click here to find out more.

    child_care_league_city_txAt Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of League City, we know that games and toys are integral to a child’s healthy development. Young children learn best through play, and there are many benefits for your child’s early development by utilizing the right toys and games.

    Learning through play

    A young developing mind is driven by curiosity and reward, and educational games and toys address both of these. The right balance of educational toys and games that are designed specifically to allow a child to explore various physical, emotional and social concepts will make use of all of the five senses.

    Your child will learn the most at this age through direct experience. By playing with toys and games, he or she will learn what things are and how they work, and about people and the world.

    Fundamental building blocks

    Toys can be used to address various developmental goals such as:

    • physical - blocks, wagons, shovels, cars, trucks
    • sensory - water toys, musical instruments, bubbles, play dough, and sand toys.
    • creativity and imagination - dolls, costumes, games, books
    • mental - clay, crayons, paint, pencils, paper

    Your child will need toys or games from all of these areas to ensure holistic, comprehensive development and many of these toys promote several types of development at once. Your child will gain self-confidence, use his or her energy in positive ways, will learn about accomplishment and discover his or her emotions all through play.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of League City knows that when our teachers play with the children, the quality of their play and learning improves.

    Allergies in a child is not uncommon and can cause your child to feel uncomfortable. If you believe that your child may have an allergy to milk, a trip to the doctor may be necessary. This will allow them to run pertinent tests as well as give you advice on what to look for as a parent. One of the few allergies parents should look for is dairy allergy also known as lactose intolerance. A dairy allergy means that your child is allergic to milk and all other dairy products.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of League City we have been running a successful child infant care center where we take infant care seriously. Below we share a list of symptoms and solutions to look for regarding lactose intolerance.

    Symptoms

    An allergy usually goes away by the time a child is three or four years old, however if it persists, then it is best to consult a doctor for more advice. If you believe that your child is lactose intolerant, these are the symptoms to look for:

    • Bloating
    • Diarrhea
    • Stomach cramps
    • Nausea

    Parents should eliminate all dairy products from the child’s diet for a period of five weeks to see if the child is, in fact, lactose intolerant.

    Solutions

    Consult with your doctor. Typically a doctor will run tests to confirm the allergy, he will furthermore advise you to change from cow milk to soy milk if the child is formula feeding. Should your child not like or cannot stomach soy milk, the doctor will ask you to try a hypoallergenic formula, which will not cause an allergic reaction.

    Another alternative could be an amino-acid based infant formula, which may be recommended if the child’s allergic reactions do not improve. Furthermore you can also use lactose free or lactose-reduced products, which can be bought over the counter. It always best to take your child to the doctor if you think he or she is having a severe allergic reaction.
