Preschoolers love to be outside. Finding enjoyable outdoor activities during the hot, sticky summer months can be challenging. When the thermometer rises, look for activities that include water play in order to keep kids cool while outside.
Now, many months in the Covid-19 pandemic, we have the benefit of scientific studies to shed light on what we can do and how we can do it safely. For parents, sending young children to preschool or daycare is a fundamental component of their daily routine and one of the first steps to begin the return to normalcy.
Most parents look to daycare and preschool to fill logistical needs that arise from work schedules and commitments or to give their children exposure to academic content and experiences. There are many benefits of child care, however, beyond these primary considerations—some of which extend to the entire family.
The curiosity and wonder of toddlers and preschoolers are truly boundless. STEAM—Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math—is an educational movement that taps into this natural inclination to explore, incorporating inquiry and creativity into students’ learning experiences. STEAM activities provide hands-on opportunities for students to discover the world around the world.
