Headline: 💡Naturally set your children’s internal clocks to a time that is better suited to their schedule, i.e. they wake up at a consistent time, feeling refreshed... and maybe give you a bit of extra 😴
But really, don't do it for you, do it for them!
It’ll take a little patience, and practice, yet it’s worth it for your flawless morning routine... there are TWO steps:
STEP 1: Get them to understand the number you want them to awake at. (note this works only to wake up on the hour).
So if you want them to get up at 7:00, show them the number 7. • Show it to them on paper. • Show it to them on their clock. • Show it to them in books. • Have them practice writing it. • Talk to your child about what happens in the morning at 7…“After you are done sleeping through the night and you are ready to wake up, you will look at the clock and see what time it is.”
NOW that they know WHAT number to look for, it's time to RESET THEIR INTERNAL CLOCK WITH THIS TRICK⏰✔️
STEP TWO: WRITE JUST THE HOUR of the time you want the kids to come out of bed on your piece of paper. Write it big (a little bigger than the number on the clock). This is our ‘allowed out of bed’ time.
Now tape that paper over the MINUTES on your clock -it must be a digital clock- so that all that you are left seeing is the hour on the left and the paper on the right. Show your kids when the number on the clock (the hour) matches the number on their paper, they can get out of bed. YES!
👍Now enjoy those extra 💤

Headline: 🙏We're grateful we're on that tiny list! 🙂
We know you did your homework. You can practically recite the research—there are many benefits to your little one attending a preschool!
Still, it’s not easy to leave your perfect, tiny little human with others—no matter how loving or qualified.
We're here for you, every step of the way... Each and every one of us is honored to make the small list of people you entrust to look after your child. It’s our passion, our calling, and how we can best be of service.
90% of your child’s brain capacity develops before age 5.
Read to your child more than three times a week, and you DOUBLE the likelihood that they’ll be among the top 25% in reading.
Reading is the basis for education!
Children who grow up exposed to a minimum of 20 books, get on average three more years of schooling than those who don't, regardless of parental income, education, or class. The mere presence of books is powerful enough to overcome that impact.
Early reading skills have such a tremendous and lasting impact on future success.
Make reading a part of your child’s daily routine and prepare them to succeed in school, and later in life.
Headline: (っ◔◡◔)っ ♥ To all the adults in my life... ♥ I appreciate your love and guidance, even though I might not always show it. I know you might not remember what it's like to be little, either! So here's a gentle reminder for the both of us... When I feel safe, secure, and supported 👈♥👉 I can listen a bit better, learn more, and follow directions easier.

It can be all too easy throughout your busy day to miss sharing the little moments with me. Small gestures, like a reassuring smile, a little wave, or a nod, make me feel connected to you. That’s when I feel safe!
You know I want to explore one second and come to you for comfort the next. This is how I gain confidence! Tune in to me, hold me, hug me, or pick me up when I need it. When I know I can come to you, I feel secure.

Headline: 😉 STEAM: Science, technology, engineering, art, and math, can sound like a mish-mash of subjects best suited for older children.
But illustrating basic STEAM concepts with younger children, like cause and effect, is easy and fun!
📝 The best part: it doesn’t take safety goggles, an app, test tubes, or anything more than items often already stocked in your pantry.
A classic favorite is Rainbow Water Play–and it’s exactly what it sounds like. 🌈 💧
With your help, have your child add food coloring or paint to a bowl of water. Together, note how many drops you add.
🔍 Watch the color “move” through the water. What do you see?
🎨 As a scientist would, take note of swirling, sinking, and the spread of color. Try adding different colors to see how they react to each other.
💡 You can even play Sink Or Float, and use household objects or foods to form a hypothesis first.
Questions you can pose to your preschooler:
💭 Will flour float or sink? Why or why not?
🍂 How about corn starch? A pebble? A leaf?
Let creativity take the lead!
Rainbow water play is a great starting point, hands-on activity that engages and sparks a connection between STEAM concepts and also between you both.
It may get messy, so keep a rag handy, and maybe a change of clothes too!
🔬 Education and fun go hand in hand, and activities like this nurture curious, lifelong learners, who aren’t afraid to experiment.
Remember, STEAM activities are all around us. Seize the wonder of everyday items for fun, early learning today.
