    Instead of ice cream, though, children could use an extra boost of nutritious food during the holidays when they’re not at preschool. They’re filled with energy, and they need healthy food to convert that energy into precious nutrients their bodies need. They also need to expel this energy and nutrients in healthy ways, but sometimes it’s hard to play outside during the winter.

    It’s your child’s first educational milestone – her preschool graduation! As you take hundreds of pictures, you can’t help but wipe away happy tears from your eyes. Your little one is growing up, and quickly! But is she ready for kindergarten?

    Many parents of young children struggle with anxiety when it comes to their child’s educational and social preparedness for the next grade level. It’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of a new school, new teachers and new expectations for learning. You may be asking, “Does my child know all that she needs to know?” “Will she handle the transition well?” “How can I prepare her best for kindergarten?” To help you determine if your child is ready to step out of the preschool classroom and enter kindergarten, we’ve prepared a checklist for you. Use this checklist as a tool to test whether your child has mastered the skills necessary to step into kindergarten equipped for success. But, don’t worry too much if your child doesn’t get an A+ on the test. Progress is just as important as competence!

    Walking through the grocery store and seeing all the graduation-themed cards, balloons and flowers can get you thinking about your own child’s high school graduation. Even if your child is still in preschool or kindergarten, it can be easy getting wrapped up in the fantasy of one day being free from bed wetting incidents, crayon marks on the walls, and long grocery lists of juice boxes and cheese crackers. However, if you’re like most parents, you also dread the moments that remind you that your child is growing up quickly before your eyes. Graduation from preschool or kindergarten is one of those moments.

    As your child walks across the stage in her cute oversized cap and gown, you can’t help but wish for time to stand still. You wish your little one would stay little forever. Yet, this graduation experience doesn’t have to be sad and emotional. Prepare yourself, and your child, for a time of celebration!

    As the grass dries out and the weather gets warmer, take your children outside to run around, play, and soak up the sunshine. There are many options for outdoor activities – but some of them take a little bit more planning and creativity. Here are a few outdoor activities that require very minimal planning and preparation.

    Whatever you choose to do with your children, remember that quality time spent with them is more important than the activity that you actually end up doing!

    Plan a scavenger hunt.

    Before you go out to your favorite park or nature area, make a list of items for your child to find or do when you get there. It can be as easy as “Find a tree with flowers on it,” “Find a dandelion,” or “Do 10 jumping jacks!” The goal is to keep your child occupied and active! If you want to encourage some healthy competition, set a timer and reward the child who gets done with the scavenger hunt first!

    Pitch a tent and have a “camp out” in the backyard.

    If you have a backyard, take your kids outside for a “camp out.” Pitch a tent, bring out some sandwiches and lemonade, and pretend you’re in the middle of a forest. When it gets dark, look for shooting stars, and maybe even tell spooky stories!

    Spending time outdoors before it gets unbearably hot is a great option for some quality family time. Even if you have little ones, you can make an outdoor adventure a day that everyone enjoys. The best way to ensure a fun experience for your family is by planning ahead. Any time 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 in to one afternoon can lead to grumpy children and an exhausted parent.

    1. Location, Location, Location – In the spirit of keeping it simple, have your outdoor adventure on familiar territory. If you are comfortable with the area, it will take a load off of your mind and allow you to enjoy the day more freely. When your kids are older or whenever you are more comfortable to visit a new place, venture out to a local park or zoo for your picnic festivities.

    2. Bring a Friend – Since toddlers and preschoolers always seem to have an inexhaustible amount of energy, it’s a great idea to collaborate with another family so that your children can play together. Not only will your children have a ton of fun together, you will also enjoy some adult conversation while they play – everybody wins! The great outdoors is the perfect place to allow your children to use their imagination, and bringing a friend is sure to create new, unexplored adventures involving space ships and castles and who knows what else!

    Earth Day is here and it’s a great chance to teach your child about the importance of taking care of the environment. There are several ways you can incorporate earth-friendly habits in to your life and one of the easiest is through recycling.

    The first step to teaching your child about recycling is making it a fun experience! Since recycling involves sorting and containers, it’s the perfect set-up for a basketball game. Line up your recycling bins and have your children practice tossing paper, cardboard, and other lightweight recyclables in to the bin. If you have more than one child, try assigning a particular recyclable item to each child and have them go on a “treasure hunt” around the house and neighborhood looking for his/her specific recyclable item. Reward their efforts with a pre-determined prize (ice cream cone, day at the park, etc.) if they reach a certain goal.

    Spring’s arrival has been marked with sunnier and longer days that beckon families out of the house on the weekend and eager children gazing out the window in their classrooms. Spring is such a unique and wonderful phenomenon. Every year it comes by, offering new hope, fresh beginnings, greener grass and… oh, allergies.

    If your child suffers from seasonal allergies, springtime may not be as magical and marvelous as it is for other kids. Having to tell your child she can’t play for as long outside or that she has to take an inhaler with her wherever she goes can lead to some gloomy spirits on an otherwise picturesque day. Don’t lose heart, mom and dad! Despite the pesky pollen and other allergens floating in the air, you can still have a great time together as a family and make memories that will forever be happily tucked in to her childhood.

    Do you find yourself saying “Don’t ever talk to me like that!” on a regular basis? Are you tempted to respond to your child’s back talking by saying “You’ll do it because I said so?”

    If you’re like many parents, you may be dealing with a child testing out the boundaries of his or her independence. It is common for children to lash out at their parents when they feel like they have no personal power. Children need to feel comfortable and safe expressing their own opinions even if they are different from the opinions of their parents. Creating opportunities for your child to make their own choices is one way you can curb those annoying, whiny, temper tantrums.  

    Teaching your child the art of disagreeing in a respectful manner can be a struggle. Allowing your child greater independence seems risky at first. However, by establishing clear limits of their independence, you are still in charge – and your child learns to express disagreement in a way that doesn’t involve back talking, screaming and clenched fists.

    There are generally two kinds of parents – those who “wing it” and those who are particular about every particular thing. The particular parents tend to care about structure and are often strict about their child’s routines. The parents who “wing it” tend to respond to all their child’s demands in the moment and are flexible with routines.

    While there is room for parents to be flexible about establishing boundaries and guidelines for their toddlers, routines help toddlers feel comfortable and secure in knowing there is certainty and predictability in their lives. As toddlers grow and develop, they need a strong sense of safety. Routines help toddlers learn how to interact with the world by doing the same things over and over again. The bottom line is that patterns help toddlers learn.

    When there is routine and structure in the home, toddlers tend to be more calm and relaxed. Changes to schedules and routines can be particularly stressful for young children. It is not uncommon for a child who is used to mommy putting him to sleep every night to throw a fuss when the new babysitter tries to do the same thing. Changes in routine make toddlers uncertain and scared because they notice when something is different. Read the full article here: The Benefits of Routine for Toddlers

    When a child is born she immediately begins the process of learning and adapting to the world. Many skills come very instinctively to a child such as swallowing, eating, laughing, and crying. For the majority of a child’s life, however, she will need the help of others around her to explain important concepts and demonstrate healthy social skills.

    One of the most effective ways to establish a solid educational foundation at an early age is by enrolling your child in an elite preschool or childcare facility. Learning can also be enhanced and encouraged at home as well and parental involvement plays a key role in making this happen. From making conversation to including your child in household chores, there are many ways you can invite your child into a learning experience.

    Taking the time to understand what your child’s preschool teacher is teaching in class can also help you find creative ways to continue the learning at home. Your child will take notice of your interest in her education and may even find herself enjoying school more when you are excited about it too!

    child_care_peachtree_city_ga

    Your child’s developing brain is reliant on a number of different factors. There is one thing that childcare professionals all agree on and it is that toddler and preschooler brain development is dependent on the types of food your child eats. We will examine some of the foods you should be feeding your child in order to ensure a healthy brain.

    Fish

    The human body needs to acquire fatty acids through diet. Look for oily fish species such as salmon, herring, trout, sardines, and pilchards as outstanding sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These fats are not only responsible for nurturing your child’s young brain, but they also reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s later on in life.

    Apples and plums

    Apples and plums are the ideal finger food for your child’s developing brain. They are easy to serve and most preschoolers and toddlers love their taste. Apples and plums both contain an antioxidant known as quercetin, which is believed to help fight against cognitive decline.

    Wholegrain

    Your child’s brain works incredibly hard throughout the day, and just like every other organ in the body, it requires fuel. This fuel generally comes in the form of glucose from our bloodstream. Pack your child a low glycemic index (GI) sandwich for lunch as low-GI breads slowly release glucose into the bloodstream helping keep the brain fuelled longer periods. Parents should also make use of brown pasta, whole grain cereal as well as wheat bran whenever possible.

    The human brain is a magnificent organ with the capabilities to perform almost any task. It makes sense that, as a parent, you should do everything in your power to help your child’s brain develop. Your child’s brain is essentially going to be responsible for future health and wellness, career and success, as well as how he or she will cope with various life scenarios.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City takes a closer look at the brain’s many functions and how you as a parent can assist with effective brain development throughout the preschool years.

    Forebrain

    The forebrain is vital in our social world because it is responsible for conscious thinking. This includes our intelligence, memory, emotions, speech, and personality. The forebrain can be divided into four lobes, the frontal, the parietal, the temporal and the occipital. The forebrain is one of the most important parts used because it provides cognitive understanding.

    Midbrain

    The midbrain relays and coordinates messages between the brain and spinal cord, which connects to the rest of the body. Imagine that your midbrain is the central communication that allows your brain to control your body.

    Hindbrain

    This smaller part of the brain is responsible for movement, coordination and balance. This part of the brain also controls the functions that we do not control consciously, such as breathing, swallowing, digestion and blood pressure.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City understands the intricacies of cognitive, physical, and emotional brain development in a child. Trust us to provide your child with our exclusive Brain Waves™ Curriculum that provides the academic advantage he or she deserves.

    As children grow they will go through different physical, emotional, cognitive and social developmental changes. They will begin to reach milestones. This transition will require targeted mental stimulation from the parents, and also from the program at a daycare facility. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City we have an excellent infant child care program that specializes in meeting all your infant’s needs as they engage of a variety of age-appropriate activities throughout the day. We provide far more than any typical day care center is able to do through our nationally accredited program and exclusive curriculum. Below we have listed useful information on your infant’s timeline and milestones:

    Birth to one month

    During this period a child grows rapidly, but has limited movement and minimal physical activity. Here are a few things you can expect your infant to be able to do:

    • Sleeps about 15 hours a day
    • Grasp objects placed in hands

    At this period your child will have a fixed gaze, and will not fully be able to follow objects in sight. This will improve with time, as the child grows.

    Three months to six months

    From birth to three months your child should be able to smile at the sound of your voice and follow your movements. At three months your child should be able to support the head. When a child is lying on its stomach the child should have the ability to lift up the head. During this period your child should also be able to do the following:

    • Open and close hands
    • Bring a hand to the mouth
    • Respond to loud sounds

    Each child is unique and will differ in the ability to accomplish and reach each milestone. Should you become worried about your child’s development, consult with your family doctor for more information and advice.

    Preschool is an immensely important time in your child’s life. Here he or she can learn all of the skills necessary to take on the challenges and rigors of their future school life. Here is how preschool can lay the foundation for your child’s life:

    Social skills

    Chances are that your child will not come into contact with larger numbers of children of the same age until he or she reaches preschool. The social skills that your child will learn while interacting with children their own age will help them learn interpersonal skills that are valuable in life. Preschool provides a platform for your preschooler to learn how to express his or her thoughts and feelings and to manage their behavior with others.

    Emotional development

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City, we encourage each child to express a full array of emotions. This is vital in terms of learning what is socially acceptable and unacceptable in regards to emotional outbursts. The emotional skills learned here form the basis for further emotional growth at the next educational level.

    Academic development

    This is one of the most important aspects of preschool life. A solid academic foundation can pave the way for future success in elementary school and beyond. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City, our AdvancED accredited program and exclusive fast track preschool curriculum is geared toward giving your child the best possible start in life when it comes to academics.

    Understanding different cultures

    While at preschool, your child will learn about other cultures. By introducing your child to other cultures at an early age, you are laying a foundation of tolerance, empathy and acceptance.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City, we provide your child with the best preschool education. For more information about our curriculum, contact us today.

    A child's growth does not only apply to physical growth, but also to mental growth. It is important to consistently stimulate a young child’s brain to ensure that their mental development will be just as strong as their physical development. At Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of North Peachtree City, we have been implementing a successful and exclusive brain development curriculum in our classrooms for many years. Here, we share some tips on how to help parents with child brain stimulation at home:

    Make sure your child gets enough sleep

    Sleep is vitally important for proper brain development, which is why the average person requires at least eight hours of sleep each night. Studies show that if one does not get enough sleep, brain cells will not have an opportunity to fully develop. Parents need to ensure a child has a healthy sleep routine every night. Instilling this routine in a child from a young age will improve their brain development as they get older.

    Provide your child with nutritionally balanced foods

    Eating the right foods and the appropriate portions of food can help develop a child's brain. A child should eat three full meals every day. The types of food that help with brain development include:

    • Whole grains
    • Tuna and salmon
    • Avocados

    These types of foods help with cognitive skills, memory development and are also a good source of protein. Be sure to include plenty of water throughout the day.

    Help your child develop a love for reading

    Reading develops the brain in numerous ways. Reading a book can essentially turn on all the senses, which is not only good for young developing brains but also for learning a language. Reading allows a child to develop their imagination, whether they are being read a book or reading one themselves. Parents should take time to read to their child daily, which will help the child learn to read on their own. New language can also grow the brain, therefore reading to a child in another language will further support brain growth and development.
