A recent hot topic circulating many Parents Groups as well as our Stamford daycare surrounds nap time and how it affects our children. The truth is, every child at our CT early learning center responds differently to a nap because each child has their own needs and may require varying amounts of sleep.
As promised, this is the second part of our two-part blog series on dealing with aggressive behaviors in young children.
As many of our CT early learning center parents with 2 and 3 year olds are aware, your tiny one’s tantrums usually begin in the toddler stage. Often times, aggressive behaviors continue among preschool aged tots and can take a slightly different tone than when they were toddlers. These behaviors may be frustrating for parents and CT early learning center caregivers, but most of the time they are nothing to be alarmed about. That being said, however, there are a few ways to tackle these issues to help to minimize your child’s aggressive behaviors and teach them healthy problem solving skills that will aid them as they continue to grow and develop, both intellectually and emotionally.

In this two-part blog series, I will address how to respond to the aggressive behavior of toddlers & preschoolers. This first installment focuses on toddlers. Continue reading
It seems like everybody is gearing up for the holidays! It’s hard not to get excited – joy is in the air and the holiday decorations are flying off the store shelves in anticipation. Your children are sure to pick up on the holiday spirit– after all, it doesn’t take much to overjoy the little ones!
As the holidays grow nearer, now is the time to prepare your child by giving them an early childhood head start for the upcoming holiday events at home and at their CT early learning center. Though they are joyous times, the holidays can also be overwhelming, particularly for young children who haven’t had much experience navigating the holiday season. Continue reading
Already the snow has begun to fall and the weather is getting crisp and cold at our day care in Stamford CT. Now is the time that germs and viruses begin to spread, and all the schools, childcare facilities and preschools in CT are certainly not exempt. Children enrolled in early learning programs at daycares and preschools are very susceptible to catching colds and the flu, and it can be difficult to detect the symptoms early on and put a stop to the spreading of the virus. It can be equally difficult to determine whether or not your child is well enough to attend their preschool or day care in Stamford CT. Continue reading
With the onset of a new school year, your children will be encountering many new and unfamiliar little faces. If your child hasn’t been to a CT early learning center or enrolled in CT early learning programs, they may not be used to daily interactions with other kids.
While it always appears to adults that friendships form so naturally among young ones, your child may actually be feeling some anxiety about making friends, particularly if you have a little one who is on the shyer side. Continue reading
As parents, we want to do everything we can to help our children succeed. The steps we take right now can have a tremendous impact on our children’s future success. One of the best ways to set the groundwork for a lifelong love of learning is to read together with your child.
Studies have shown that beginning to read to your child at an early age is beneficial in providing them with an early childhood head start for learning. Reading to and with your child enhances and augments their early childhood development education. Your child’s brain is developing at an astronomical rate right now. Being exposed, in a loving and nurturing way, to language and story helps teach critical skills like language acquisition and beginning literacy.
It’s that time of year again: children and parents are gearing up for a new school year. Trying to prepare your child for school can be overwhelming – you’re bombarded with television commercials and store advertisements rattling off long lists of supplies that your preschooler or kindergartener will need. When you’re finally able to tune out this chatter, you come face to face with your own emotions that surface with the thought of sending your child off to their Stamford preschool learning center or elementary school for the first time.
If you think you’re feeling anxious, that’s nothing compared to what your child is feeling. Your little one is about to embark on a brand new experience filled with fresh faces, different routines and unfamiliar surroundings. How can you help them to ease their first-day-of-school anxieties (as well as your own) and give them the very best early childhood head start?
