Play is essential for both physical and cognitive development in Early Childhood. Between the ages of 3 to 6, children typically transition from manipulating toys on their own to parallel play alongside a peer to socially interactive play with a small group. Join us for an informal conversation about the role of the adult in children's play, including when and how to intervene if conflicts arise. We'll also touch on fun games to play with young kids and what to do if they keep trying to change the rules!

Making Reading Fun

The human brain is hard-wired for oral language. Babies hear language and mimic it, eventually learning to speak. Multiple parts of the brain need to work together efficiently before we can comprehend written words, so learning to read is a multi-year effort that requires explicit instruction. During the time it takes for brain processes to come together, it's important to help sustain a child's joy in exploring the power of written language. Providing a language-rich environment at home is important, but there are other specific strategies for sharing books with young children in ways that can enhance literacy. Join us for an informal conversation about the reading journey and what you can do to foster a lifelong love of books.
