The holidays are a time for joy, but for many families, there’s also a lot of pressure to make everything perfect. Try these tips to overcome packed calendars, sugar overload and budget-busting buying sprees.

📅 Create some space on your calendar.
Re-evaluate the number of parties and events you reply yes to this year and leave space for spontaneous family fun.

😴 Maintain your family’s sleep routine.
Adults and children need adequate sleep all the time, but especially during the holidays with all the stimuli and activity.

🍭 Watch out for sugar overload.
As they say, “everything in moderation.” Sweet treats are a great part of the holidays, but too much sugar can lead to cranky children and irritable adults.

👪 Keep it simple.
Making ornaments, presents and holiday décor is a fun way to express creativity, enjoy quality family time and even help ease financial stress.

🍽️ Make mealtime meaningful.
Let mealtime be a time of coming together and enjoying the moment. During the holidays, make an extra effort to eat your meals at the table as a family.

🔇 Cherish silence.
Make time for a bit of silence every day, whether it’s in the morning before the children wake up, during their nap or right before you turn in.

🎵 Create joyful rituals.
Find some time for family fun with simple holiday rituals you and your children will always remember, like singing holiday songs in the car.

Happy holidays! Check out our blog for the full story. http://bit.ly/3H2Whht

Ms. Gil is an infant teacher at Primrose School of Druid Hills and has been teaching in early childhood for over 10 years. For Native American Heritage Month, she joined us to share her story. ​

Tell us about yourself and your Native American heritage. ​

Ms. Gil: “My dad and grandma always said that our Native American Heritage was Blackfoot from the northern Idaho and Montana region. It wasn’t until our family moved to a tiny town in northern Nevada that I really learned about Native American culture. I lived on the reservation with my husband and his family, and they taught me traditions and customs of the tribe.” ​

Parent's Night Out, Friday December 2nd

This exciting event is designed to allow parents to share a date night while leaving your children in trusted care at Primrose.

Each event will begin at 6:00, and children must be picked up by 10:00 p.m. We encourage parents to pick children up early enough to provide a breather away from Primrose before PNO begins. If you are unable to pick your child up prior to the start of PNO, please send a pair of PJs and a blanket or love for your child in a separate bag or backpack on Friday morning.

We will provide pizza, drinks, games, movies, and activities for the children. We will assign classrooms based on the number of children who register and will let you know prior to the event whether your child will be assigned to their normal classroom.

How to register for PNO? We will place a stack of envelopes at the front desk designated as PNO registration. Include the following information on the front of the envelope:
1) Name
2) Number of Children
3) CASH payment included ($35 for 1 child, $60 for 2 children, $85 for 3 children) Older siblings can attend as well.
4) Date Registered and Date of Event

Seal your cash payment inside the envelope and drop it in our payment box or hand it to a leadership team member.

Please note, only cash payments will be accepted and is NON-REFUNDABLE. Your child's registration will be secured when your cash payment is received in full. We will no longer be holding spots without payment. We want to be able to give everyone an equal opportunity to secure a spot.

This has been an amazingly popular event in the past and we are so excited to welcome back PNO to Primrose!
