Family Newsletter—August 2022
Welcome to our final month of summer. At the center we are celebrating BEE MONTH! As pollinators, bees are an important part of our ecosystem – and we think they’re pretty cute too! Did you know that in its lifetime, a bee will visit20,000 flowers?? Keep an eye out in the center for more bee fun and activities to celebrate BEE MONTH. It’s also back to school and fall planning time. Here are a few ideas to start now to get your kids ready!
RESET BEDTIME – Slowly move bedtime earlier by 5 or 10minutes a day to be sure your child is ready and rested for back to school.
TALK ABOUT IT! – Back to school can bring new worries for our kids. Using open ended questions to understand what they might be feeling is a great way to help ease their concerns.
PRACTICE INDEPENDENCE – Dressing themselves, drinking from a cup, feeding themselves are all great examples of activities they might be asked to do on their own. Practicing these at home will build their confidence and help prepare your kiddo for school.
