  • Preschool Games to Beat Summertime Boredom

    With the new school year right around the corner, your preschooler may be feeling restless at home and eager to get back into a routine.

    With the new school year right around the corner, your preschooler may be feeling restless at home and eager to get back into a routine. If you’re looking for a few activities to turn the last few weeks of summer into a month of fun, we’ve got you covered. Check out these boredom-busting ideas:

    Visit an Arcade

    There are endless activities at your local arcade, from air hockey to Pacman. Grab the whole family and maybe even a few friends, and game the day away! You can teach your child a variety of new games, bond over friendly competition, and maybe even win a few prizes.

    Backyard Water-Slide

    This activity is sure to keep you cool in the midst of the summer heat. With a long plastic tarp, garden stakes, and baby shampoo, you can transform your backyard into a water park featuring a slip ‘n’ slide! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen and use baby oil to avoid any slide burns.

    Sidewalk Chalk Pictionary

    This twist on Pictionary is tons of fun. All you need is a bucket of sidewalk chalk and your imagination! Get the family together and head to the driveway to play an exciting game of Pictionary. Each player gets a turn drawing the picture of his choice (without telling the other players what he’s creating). Whoever can guess what is being drawn the fastest is the big winner!

    Water Hose Limbo

    Water hose limbo is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day while having a blast! Simply place your thumb over the hose spout or use a hose nozzle to get a stream going. Each child must try to pass under the stream of water while leaning back. If they get wet, they are eliminated! Lower the hose little by little every time someone passes successfully. The final winner is the player who passes successfully under the lowest stream without getting wet.

    Take full advantage of the last few weeks of fun by trying one of these summertime games. Your little one may be feeling antsy at home, but once you try one of these fun activities, they won’t want summer to end!

    Summertime temperatures are perfect for days spent by the water - but safety comes first! Everyone knows not to dive into the shallow end or run near the edge of the pool, but we've thought of a few extra ways to protect your preschooler. Follows these pool safety tips for some worry-free summer fun.

    Protect your skin

    Sunscreen is a must! The sun's intense UV rays can have harmful affects on your child's skin when exposed for too long. Select a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher in order to avoid a sunburn.

    Remove distractions

    Be sure to keep all toys and inflatable floats away from the pool when not in use. These extra distractions can guide your preschooler toward the pool when it's not time to swim, so keep the perimeter of the pool free of any toys.

    Toys with wheels are a no-go

    Remind your child that it isn't safe to ride bicycles, tricycles, or skateboards near the edge of the pool. Slippery pool tile doesn't pair well with wheels, so it's best to keep all rideable toys far away from the water.

    Install a fence

    If you're putting an in-ground pool in your background, remember to install a fence around the perimeter of the pool. Fences should be climb resistant and reach at least 4 feet tall in order to best protect your preschooler from entering the pool area at the wrong time.

    The very best way to stay safe during pool time is to remember to keep your eyes on the pool and those swimming at all times. Even better? Go ahead and hop in with your kiddos to cool off and ensure a fun and safe swim!

  • Summer Vacation with Preschool Children

    Summertime is perfect for rest and relaxation, but there’s nothing relaxing about planning the ultimate trip. If you’re unsure how to prepare or you’re worried about keeping your preschooler preoccupied on those long travel days, we’ve got you covered with the best tips to make your summer vacation a success.

    Take a staycation!

    If you don’t have any major plans this summer—don’t fret! You can easily transform your home into the ultimate vacation destination. With a sprinkler party, a baby pool, or a tarp and some baby oil, your child will feel like they’re at a waterpark rather than in their own backyard.

    Pack comfortably.

    Remember to pack comfortably, and keep climate in mind. Maybe you’re heading for cooler temperatures where you’ll need cozy jackets and scarves, or maybe you’re traveling to the beach. Pack accordingly, and wear comfortable clothes on your flight (or in the car).

    Explain the airport process to your preschooler.

    If you’re flying to your destination, explain the entire airport process to your child ahead of time. Flying can be a nerve-wracking experience whether you’re a first-time flier or a seasoned professional. From airport security to taking off, your little one will appreciate the heads up (and this will save you some heart ache, as well).

    Bring your child’s favorite item.

    Consider packing your child’s favorite blanket or stuffed animal in their suitcase or carry on. Traveling to a new city (or country for that matter) can cause feelings of uneasiness. However, a small piece of home will provide your child with a sense of familiarity and comfort in case they’re feeling home sick.

    Pack a few special treats or toys to reward your preschooler for having good behavior, and try to be patient when they’re not. No one likes being stuck in a car or on an airplane for hours at a time, but hopefully these travel tips will make your experience flow smoothly. Bon voyage!

    There are countless benefits when it comes to exploring and embracing art, from developing a new skill to discovering a unique creative outlet. If you’re interested in introducing your preschooler to the wonderful world of art, we’ve got you covered. Check out these tips, encourage your little one to love and appreciate art, and watch him or her translate the lessons to their everyday life.

    Find different kinds of art.

    Expose your child to different types of art, including drawing, painting, sculpting, design, and architecture. Visit an art museum with your preschooler and talk about what you see and how the art makes you feel. This may help you uncover exactly which areas of art interest your child, which you can then further explore down the road.

    Try new materials your preschooler finds.

    Offer new and interesting materials for your preschooler to get creative with. Finger paint, create spin art, and use unconventional items as brushes, such as potato mashers, plastic spoons and toothbrushes. You don’t even have to use printer paper as your blank canvas—painted wooden shapes and letters make for great room decor.

    Read illustrative books aloud.

    When reading aloud, choose children’s books with artful illustrations such as those by Eric Carle, Tomie dePaola, and Dr. Seuss, and incorporate a discussion of the art. You can talk about things such as the colors and shapes used in the illustrations, and even which part of the picture was your favorite to look at.

    Think 3D!

    Think 3D when creating art with your child! Use buttons, seeds, string, tissue paper, and other items around the house, and watch your child’s vocabulary grow while discussing the process.

    At the end of the day, it’s important for your little one to have fun. Approach art like play, remembering to keep the experience light-hearted, encouraging, and inspiring. Who knows—your child could be one paintbrush stroke away from creating their first masterpiece.

    Parent-teacher teams are the strongest teams to tackle the education of preschool children. Getting to know your child’s teacher and learning to appreciate one another and work together is one of the best things that you can do for your child’s education.

    Communicate with the teacher.

    When your child is young and preschool aged, there won’t be much homework to tackle in the evenings, but there are still ways to stay involved with what the teacher is teaching and reinforce it at home. Ask the teacher and your child what they learned about each day, and try to go over it at home for more reinforcement. Are they learning their ABCs? Sing them together! Are they learning their numbers? Count fingers, toes, blocks, and anything in sight!

    Understand your preschool child’s learning style.

    Understand your child’s learning style and discuss this with your teacher. There are different learning styles, and different kids learn better through different means. The sooner you learn your child’s unique learning style, the sooner you can cater to their intellectual needs. Are they a kinesthetic, visual, verbal, or auditory learner? Be willing to invest whatever it takes in your child, and be encouraging to them as they work hard to learn more every day. Ask them about their day after school and listen for any hints they give you about where they might be struggling.

    Thank your child’s teacher!

    Last, be sure to appreciate your child’s teacher and all they do for your child. They have a classroom full of children, and sometimes it can be difficult to spend quality one-on-one time with every child, so make you that you let them know that you are thankful for the time and effort that they put into educating and caring for your child. Appreciation, respect, and communication are vital for any relationship, so develop these things with your child’s teacher so that you can team up and give your child the best education.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Parents might not know that their child’s brain has already begun developing while still in the womb. From the second trimester, your child’s brain is formed and filled with millions of neurons which will link together to form pathways of information. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Johns Creek Parkway, Georgia has advice which can help you provide optimum brain development opportunities for your unborn child. Read on to find out some of the ways in which this can occur.

    The outside world

    As early as fourteen weeks into pregnancy, your child already picks up aspects from the outside world. Light and sounds have an impact on your unborn child’s brain growth. A chaotic environment can severely deter your child’s mental growth, so ensure that you maintain a calm environment during pregnancy and thereafter. This will benefit you and your child and ensure maximum brain development.

    Eating right

    Eating right is crucial because your child essentially eats the same foods you do in this prenatal period. The taste buds are already well developed by twenty five weeks, so make sure the vitamins and minerals you are eating are the best for your child. It is also essential to shy away from harmful foods and ingredients during this stage as they can severely impact your baby’s health and mental growth. If unsure consult with a child care specialist or doctor for more help.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Johns Creek Parkway, Georgia is the child care expert committed to providing the best educational programs for your child. We understand the need for peak mental and physical development in your unborn child. Contact us today to find out more about child care or to enroll in our AdvancED™ accredited program.

    johns_creek_ga_preschoolPreschool is important in your child’s brain and emotional intelligence development. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Johns Creek Parkway, Georgia understands that both emotional and mental learning need to be present in the preschool years. We have prepared a short piece on the importance of emotional intelligence knowledge growth during this period.

    What is Emotional Intelligence?

    Many have heard the term emotional intelligence, or “EQ”, but it is often misunderstood. Simply put, EQ is the ability to recognize and distinguish between the vast amounts of emotions which we experience. This includes being able to think and behave in a specific manner, and to understand and control the specific emotion being shown. With a child, it is highly important to foster this as it develops your child for the social aspects of preschool and life in general.

    The benefits of fostering EQ

    Even though teaching EQ does not happen in the same way as a regular learning experience, it does not mean it should be forgotten. The way in which EQ is fostered in your child is through proper childcare techniques. Basically, anything from holding your child, playing with your child, listening to your child, and setting great examples will increase the quality of your child’s EQ.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Johns Creek Parkway has a vast amount of knowledge on child care and educational strategies to aid your preschooler. This knowledge ranges from how to form correct eating habits, ways to help your child reach maximum brain development, to helping you to improve your child’s emotional intelligence. We have the answers for you. Contact us today for information on any childcare issues you have or to enroll your child in our amazing AdvancED™ accredited program.

    3.  Our Staff

    Our hiring practices meet the highest standards and ensure that your child is always supervised by a fully qualified caregiver. Our staff are fully trained in our curriculum, in addition to First Aid/CPR, infectious disease control and injury prevention. As a team, we are dedicated to meeting your child’s physical and developmental needs. Through our educational curriculum we are creating a lifelong love of learning within your child. Our “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy ensures that your child always feels safe and cared for.
