The word essential is being used a lot lately, and childcare providers have been added to that group and rightfully so.
I wanted to list three reasons why you are essential even before the word became popular.

1. Parents couldn't go and do their job effectively if they didn't have the assurance that their children were well cared for.
2. You teach the children that the world is a safe and loving place because of how you greet them with a smile, comfort them when they are out of sorts, and giggle with them over silly things.
3. You prove that dedication to your job isn't about money, but it's about the love you have for the children and their families.

Whether you are working or not, you are essential before the pandemic and will be long after.


Tired of the hygiene activities? Please say no 😉. This one is so fun!! Scrub scrub scrub those germs away 😝. But seriously, pushing the pom poms in and out of the hands is entertaining. Even for adults 🙋🏻‍♀️. Just make sure to use soft bristle brushes or else 💥. A little tip for little ones with razor claw nails 😳. Add a layer of clear packing tape to the front of the bag. It will never leak again 🙌🏼.

-Galloon size, freezer grade, zip bags
-Clear hair gel
-Permanent marker
-Pom poms or beads
*Optional: remove the label off of the bag using an alcohol pad.
1️⃣Place your Childs hands in the middle of the bag and trace them using a permanent marker.
2️⃣Open the bag and fill it with about 2 cups of hair gel.
3️⃣Add in the pom poms and seal the bag leaving no air inside.
4️⃣Turn the bag over so that the marker side is facing down.
5️⃣Push all of the pom poms inside the hands. Hand your little one a soft bristle brush and haver them “clean the hands” by scrubbing the pom poms away.
💚We usually keep our sensory bags but you can open it up, empty what’s inside, rinse it and let it dry. They can be reused for other sensory bags in the future 💚.

❣️Please tell us some useful things you’ve done to help improve hygiene at home 🙏🏽 #mothercould

We need to pour more into our Teachers.

If only all parents supported teachers this much... 👋

Thank a teacher in your life, today. You'll be surprised how much it means to them!

Our theme of the month is HEALTHY EATING! Our preschool class had a fruit tasting to kick off the month. It was a great crowd pleaser! 😁


It sticks with you.

We must take care of our Teachers so they can take care of our Children.

What are your thoughts?


Love it.

This little boy led his classmates in prayer before lunch ❤️🙏

Can you relate? 😉


Children's Museum of the Lowcountry

Learning music develops the left side of the brain (which rules language and reasoning), aiding sound recognition and teaching rhythm and rhyme.

Children that are exposed to music at a young age have improved speech development and learn to read more easily.

And you'll soar..
