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.

Check Out Our September ParentTip on Helping Your Child Learn First From You!

It may be back to school time but your child first learns from you! You might think of kindergarten as the start of your child’s education, but by that time, your child has already been learning for years! In fact, your child has been learning since birth: from you.
Spend just 15 minutes a day on learning activities now with your young child, and it can make a difference for life. No matter what you’re doing together, your child is learning. Please check out our  September ParentTip on Helping Your Child Learn !
