Know How Your Child Grows!

Your young child is growing fast! The early years are the most important ones for your child’s physical, emotional and mental development. Since every child is different, children grow and develop at different rates. Most children at each age have a certain range of skills. But children don’t develop evenly.
They are usually further ahead in one area than in another. If you have a concern about your child’s development, talk with your child’s doctor. Please click here  to learn more about our November ParentTip on Knowing How Your Child Grows!


Learning Party Survey

Have you done Learning Parties in the last year? If so, we want to hear about them! Please take a few minutes to complete this online survey so that Ready At Five can continue to support the important work you do to engage families: Learning Party Survey.


Check Out Our October ParentTip on Building Your Child's Brainpower!

Did you know that every day since birth, your child has been growing and learning? Everything that happens to your baby – seeing light coming in through a window, hearing the sound of your voice – helps your child’s brain to grow. To help, try some of these fun ParentTips with your child:  Set a special time for reading every day: nap time, after-dinner time, or bedtime. Let your pre-schooler read to you if he or she can, or let him or her lead you through a story from memory. (Very carefully!) Let your child “help” with chores by using a broom, dusting a table or sorting laundry by colors. These can be fun ways for children to learn. Make (and play!) musical instruments. Use paper towel tubes, old pots, plastic pails, tin cans (with no sharp edges), cardboard, and anything else handy. Play along with the radio, or give a “concert.”  Please click here  to learn more about our October ParentTip on Building your child's brainpower.
