We’ve been helping our students practice healthy habits, like proper handwashing, with some fun tricks that your family can try at home! Here are some of our teachers’ favorite ways for little ones to learn about keeping those hands clean:

✔️ Wash while singing the alphabet song for a 20-second scrub.
✔️Together, list some handwashing befores and afters — like before eating a snack and after playing with pets.
✔️ Make handwashing fun with a sensory bin filled with sponges and soapy water.

Just like adapting to at-home learning, returning to school will be a transition for both you and your child. From getting enough sleep to switching to new routines, childcare experts in this video share ways for your family to take an active role in helping your little one get comfortable with the classroom again. We are always here to help! To find out more about our summer learning program or how we can help you and your child make a smooth transition from home to school — or anywhere in between — call us at (571) 544-3100.
“How’s the baby sleeping?” You’ve probably been asked this question about a million times.

Take a look at this sleep safety checklist that our infant teachers always have in mind.
