Holidays are a great time to teach kids about many different cultures
The holidays are a great time to teach children about other holidays, cultures and customs they might not be familiar with. The key to using the holidays as a teaching moment is to be sure the child is at an age they’ll understand it and creating activities that will instill an interest and appreciation for the holiday.

Adding in the stress of the holidays and all there is to get done can be more than you can take. As the holidays approach, be sure to take some time to relax and enjoy the season with these tips.
Everyone knows that at any age, a student learns at an increased rate and is more successful in school when their parent or caregiver is fully engaged in their educational experiences. Parents must be aware of the student’s growth, development, interests, assignments, as well as the teacher’s demands, preferences and interests. Teachers expect the information they give at school, to in some way, shape or form, make it back to the student’s house later that day. When this happens, the cycle of school work, learning, homework then new learning, can continue. Once this engagement fails, usually the student’s success rate is not far behind.
The first five years of your child’s life will be filled with fun milestones and daily changes and developments. This phase of your child’s development is key, and so will the childcare they attend. But choosing from the many facilities can be an overwhelming challenge at first.
