    Before the weather gets unbearably hot (as we know it will in the TX summer) get outside with your toddler or preschooler and go on a fun family picnic! While the idea of having small children in wide open spaces may sound too exhausting, you can eliminate some of the stress with good planning. Anytime you leave the house with your kiddos, a great rule of thumb is to keep the outing as simple as possible. Cramming too many activities into one afternoon can lead to grumpy children and an exhausted mom.

    1. Location, Location, Location – When deciding where to picnic start by doing it at a familiar place. You could even start in your own backyard or at a friend’s house. Being familiar with your surroundings will give you peace of mind to be able to enjoy yourself. Once your kids are older or whenever you are more comfortable, venture out to a local park or zoo for your picnic festivities.

    2. Bring a Friend – Children almost always do better when they have friends to play with. Even introverted children appreciate the company of another child to play with outside. Being outside is the perfect place to spark imagination so having a friend explore with your child makes it even more fun! Plus, having another adult to watch the kiddos means you will have a chance to talk to a grown-up and have another set of eyes looking out for your child as you look after theirs.

    An Easter Egg Hunt can be a fun event for the whole family, but did you know it can also be an educational opportunity for your child? Here are six creative ways your child can learn through an egg hunt:

    1.Toddlers Can Learn Colors

    Before letting your toddler loose to find as many plastic eggs as possible, tell your toddler only to collect a specific color or colors of eggs. This will help your toddler distinguish between different colors and make the game more challenging!

    2.Toddlers Can Learn Shapes

    If you’re creating your own egg hunt, fill plastic eggs with different shaped objects. After the eggs are all found, reward your child for naming each of the shapes found in his or her eggs.

    3.Preschoolers Can Learn Numbers

    If you’re creating your own egg hunt, use a permanent marker to number the plastic eggs before hiding them. Challenge your children to find the eggs in order from 1 to 20, or 1 to 100 if you’re that ambitious!

    Is your child’s back talking becoming a problem? Are you tired of hearing “No! You do it!” from your toddler or preschooler? There may be something you can do to help curb those annoying, whiny, temper tantrums.

    Instead of responding by saying “You’ll do it because I said so” or “Don’t ever talk to me like that!” there are other ways to help your child learn to disagree with you respectfully. The best way to stop back talk is to provide your child with some independence – but within your own limits. Kids of all ages need a sense of personal power to make their own choices and express their differences in opinions with parents. When parents make all the decisions for them, children naturally want to lash out, and so they do — with words and sometimes, physical aggression.

    So how can parents teach their children to disagree respectfully? Read the full article here: How to Stop Back Talking Without "Because I Said So"

    Children are always picking up on cues from the adults around them – How should I talk to people? What should I do when I’m worried or happy or sad? How should I spend my money?

    While it may be strange to think of a toddler thinking about money, teaching wise financial stewardship can start at a very early age and you can talk with your child about money in a lot of fun and creative ways.

  • The Woodlands Day care: Child brain growth and learning

    Your child’s brain begins to grow before birth. At around ten weeks of pregnancy, your baby’s brain is forging new pathways of information preparing him or her for the world. Once born, this growth does not stop; your child’s brain is still growing, learning new information, functioning at a variety of levels and adjusting to cause and effect. With the dedicated team at our facility, we can help you understand the way in which your child’s brain develops. Together, we will explore your child’s learning and brain development processes.

    The growing brain

    Before your child is born, there is already a fair amount of brain development which has taken place. The neurons in your baby’s brain are working constantly to create synapses. These are the links which information travels through within the brain and which contribute to peak mental growth in your child. These synapses need to be stimulated in your newborn so that the neurons are activated. With the help our experienced staff, your baby’s brain development can be enhanced.

    Enhancing the learning experience

    There are many ways in which to help your child learn and grow. One of the major ways is to play with your child. This play can include talking with or reading to your infant or physical play such as massage or gently moving the hands and feet. The impact that this interactive play process has on your child’s brain development is amazing. And while your infant is playing together with you, you are both forming an important bond.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of The Woodlands, Texas, has child and day care experts who can help you with your child’s optimal brain development. Contact us today to find out more about enhancing your child's learning experience at our learning academy.

    When it is time to start planning for your infant’s arrival, follow this quick guide to make sure nothing is left out:

    • Choose a physician: The health of you and your infant is a priority, so be sure to choose a doctor you can trust.
    • Attend prenatal classes: Your physician can recommend a prenatal class that will provide insight, information, and advice about the birth process and infant care.
    • Buy and fit a car seat: Choose a car seat that meets state and federal safety standards. Car seats have specific installation requirements, so practice installation and removal before the big day arrives.
    • Decorate the nursery: Paint and glue fumes are not healthy for your infant, therefore you should make sure your nursery is ready a few weeks before your due date. Be sure to plan for storage, a changing table, a bassinet, a nursing chair, toys, and supplies.
    • Pack your bag: At least two weeks before your due date, pack your bag for the hospital and include pajamas and a robe, hospital forms, nursing bras, infant clothing, toiletries, blankets, magazines and a change of clothing.
    • Practice: Before your due date, run through the process so your hospital arrival will be calm and stress free. Visit the hospital, locate the appropriate ward, and familiarize yourself with the staff. Many hospitals provide a tour for new parents prior to delivery.
    • Choose a child care facility: Life with a newborn is very busy, so plan your choice of child care well in advance. Ensure that your child has a guaranteed spot at a facility that shares your priorities and offers your child the best start in life.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of The Woodlands, Texas, we offer an innovative infant learning program that meets all of your child’s developmental needs from the age of six weeks. To find out more about our program, contact us today.

    Preschool is of great importance to your child and as a parent it can be trying to find the best preschool for your child. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of The Woodlands, Texas caters to the physical, emotional, and cognitive development of your child. Below is some information about why preschool is so important to this development.

    Why preschool?

    The main reason for preschool education is that during this time the child will learn the most. During the first six years your child will learn from everything around him or her and is most receptive to these learning experiences. Preschool falls directly into this period, so he or she will be learning many lessons that can be utilized later in life. The child will be exposed to letters, numbers and shapes. He or she will also learn how to socialize. All of these experiences prepare your child for the transition to the next level of education.

    Importance of playtime

    Some parents may not understand how playing can aid in a child’s learning. Running around and exploring outside are some of the best learning experiences. Kids ‘R’ Kids offers your child a fun and exciting learning experience to ensure peak brain development. A child can explore, gain a sense of self, problem solve, and build confidence. We know that your child is unique and thus we cater to individual needs, giving him or her a personalized preschool career.

    Below is useful information on the right brain food for your growing child.

    Strawberries and Blueberries

    Fruits and a variety of berries such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are high in antioxidants.

Serving suggestion: Slice and stir fresh berries into plain yogurt.

    Fish

    Certain fish, such as tuna, salmon and sardines are rich in Omega 3 oil. These are a nutritious addition to anyone’s diet. A good source of Vitamin D, they help to protect against cognitive decline and memory loss. Serving suggestion: grill the fish and add to a salad.

    Purple Cauliflower

    Purple cauliflower is high in fiber and low in sugar. It is also contains a good amount folate and B6, which helps to regulate, attention, memory and moods. This vegetable also provides inflammation-fighting nutrients called anthocyanins. Serving suggestion: Puree and serve as a dipping sauce.

    child_care_the_woodlands_txPromoting early brain development in a child is a priority for most parents and there are many things a parent can do at home that will have a significant impact on this growth.

    • Respond quickly and positively to your infant: This fosters a relationship of trust between you and your child, trust that is vital to the learning process. Your touch, facial expressions, tone of voice and behavior all teach your child about relationships, security and trust.
    • Engage the senses: To your child’s developing brain, the five senses are especially important for learning. Engaging each of the senses activates brain cells, which builds neural connections that will later support academic learning. Try varying your activities to bring all of your child’s senses into play. A good way to bond with your infant while stimulating the senses in a gentle, calming way is to participate in an infant massage class.
    • Avoid overstimulation: Fussing, looking away and refusing to focus or engage are all signs that your child may be feeling overstimulated. This can lead to frustration, crying and tantrums, since infants are unable to process stress effectively. A child needs soothing in a quiet, uncluttered environment.
    • Playtime is a priority: For infants, every moment of playtime is an effective learning experience. For newborns, playing is as simple as cuddling or hearing a story or lullaby. For older infants, playtime can involve music, dancing, age-appropriate toys and interaction with peers.
    • Repetition: By repeatedly showing your child how to play, new skills can be learned. Demonstrating how to stack blocks, how to kiss a teddy bear or how to turn pages provides your child tools needed to refine cognitive, language, motor and socio-emotional skills.

    If you are looking for a child care facility that shares your priorities for early childhood development, consider Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of The Woodlands. Our highly recognized Brain Waves™ Curriculum ensures that your child receives optimal stimulation. With fun developmental activities, a dedicated staff and a state-of-the-art facility, we offer your child an exceptional start in life. For more information, contact us today.

    A child at a young age cannot always easily communicate his feelings as he is still learning about emotions and does not have the vocabulary to express himself. This can often lead to frustration for both the child and the parent. Teaching a child how to express thoughts and feelings is important as it helps them maintain a healthy emotional balance.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of The Woodlands we have been running a successful child care academy for many years. Our teaching philosophy has been centralized around our “Hug First, Then Teach” mantra, which involves emotional development and encouragement. We building the foundation for the child to grow and express himself in an open and safe environment.

    We have compiled a list of useful tips below on how to help your child to express his thoughts and feelings.

    Label each feeling

    Label each feeling that your child tries to express. This will teach your child to know each emotion and to learn the vocabulary of emotions. For example:

    • If your child is laughing, then say “happy”
    • If your child is crying, then say “sad”
    • If your child is frowning, then say “upset”

    You should help your child relate the word to the facial expression and the emotion. You can show him by your example for each emotion. Talk with your child about any and all emotions so that they will be able to express them openly, and know how to talk about them.

    Be a good role model

    Be a good role model when expressing your own feelings by making sure to use facial expressions that go with the emotion and by communicating your emotions in clear and gentle language. This way your child will learn to mimic you first and then to eventually relate your emotions to his own. An emotionally balanced child who is allowed to express himself will grow up to be a confident and happy adult.
