I’m a smooth-talking, agile and observant seeker of adventure.
I’m kind of a know-it-all, as in I want to know it all.
I have more questions in me than you have answers.

What Can You Do to Help Your Child Learn and Grow?

What Can You Expect from Your Child?

  • Acknowledge your child's feelings, but be firm in the rules you set.
  • Reinforce positive actions and interactions, such as playing nicely with a friend.
  • Encourage new words and pronunciations through play
  • Practice numbers and letters, such as teaching them a poem to recite.
  • Encourage play with other children.
  • Avoid labeling your child, such as shy or aggressive, especially in front of them. You do not want them to feel as though their actions are wrong and make them a bad person. 
  • Allow your child to learn self-help skills, such as serving their own food and drinks and feeding themselves.
  • Model appropriate behaviors through pretend play.

 

  • Pretend play "mom" and "dad"
  • Cooperate with other children
  • Talk about their likes and interests
  • Tell and retell stories that are familiar to them
  • Say their first and last name
  • Sing a song or recite a poem from memory, such as “The Wheels on the Bus”
  • Draw a person with 2-4 body parts (head, body, arms or legs)
  • Uses scissors. Your child may not use them correctly, but they understand that the scissors need to open and close in order to cut something.
  • Understand the idea of counting and can count to 10
  • Hop or stand on one foot for up to two seconds
  • Catch a bounced ball most of the time
  • Pour, cut (with supervision) and mash own food
  • Care for their own toileting (going to the restroom, wiping and washing hands)
