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.

Reading books with your children is one of the best ways to connect with them, but it’s also a perfect opportunity to prepare them for going back to school! Books like “Bye-Bye Time” and “Llama Llama Misses Mama” teach young children ways to manage their feelings after their family drops them off at school.

At our School, we’re serious about safety, which includes being safe around water. As your family gets ready to splash your way through summer, we wanted to share a few important water safety tips:

• Don’t leave children alone near water even if it’s only a few inches deep.
• Never swim alone.
• Always swim where lifeguards are present.

Happy National Creativity Day! Creativity is all about giving children the freedom to make and play on their own. It can be anything from using DIY paint brushes to making mudpies in their outdoor “kitchen.” Creativity is child-led, so let your children’s imaginations run wild as they learn how to innovate while they create!

Timeline photos 05/21/2022

The World is Changing, the second theme of Summer with Goddard, will have your children exploring the world around them and noticing how it changes. From weather patterns to skills development, this theme will have them following their natural curiosity and making new discoveries every day!
