🍎 Slice an apple and then wrap it up with a rubber band to prevent browning.
🍎 Use cookie cutters to make sandwiches into fun shapes like flowers or hearts.
🍎 Take smaller, metal cookie cutters to slice shapes into fruits and veggies. Apples, carrots, cucumbers and melons work great!

It's National Read a Book Day, and we’re celebrating our little readers! From as early as 6 weeks old, Goddard helps children develop a love of reading because it has immense benefits like improving visual, cognitive, language and social-emotional development. It’s never too early or too late to start — here are some ways to read with children at every age and stage!

📖 Choose durable books for infants. Touching, holding and mouthing are all part of their learning process!
📖 Make it interactive with toddlers. Point out pictures, ask questions like, “can you find the sun?” or “how do you think they feel?” and bring the story to life with sound effects.
📖 Ask your preschooler to choose the books. This supports their self-expression and decision-making skills.
📖 Pick stories that have rhymes and repeat the rhyming words together with your pre-k or kindergartner. This helps them with letter-sound recognition as they get ready to learn to read on their own.

Find more reading tips for every age on our website:


Does your child struggle with any of these behaviors? You’re not alone! Our experts, including Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Lauren (Starnes) Loquasto, have hosted webinars on navigating challenging behaviors like biting, tantrums and separation anxiety. Visit our website and register for free access to all of the recordings. And keep an eye out for upcoming events:


How’s your child feeling about school lately? 🤔

Even if they love learning as much as these Goddard students, it’s easy to forget how much fun school can be (we get it — summer is fun, too!). Luckily, it's easy to reconnect with what makes school exciting. (Hint: Routines are important.)

Raise your hand if your summer has felt like a never-ending clean up! ✋
