Look at the LOVE that Magic Hours is getting all the way from the Philippines! Our beloved 2 year old teacher Ms. Monica, shared how proud her mama is of all her hard work teaching and caring for our little "spicy" 2 year old class! We love this photo and we love Ms. Monica!

Happy 50th Birthday to Magic Hours!

School is almost back in session so please sit down with your child for 5 minutes and explain to him/her that being very tall, short, chubby, skinny, black or white is not a joke. That there is nothing wrong with wearing the same shoes every day. Explain to him or her that a used backpack carries the same dreams as a new one... Please teach them not to exclude anyone for "being different" or not having the same possibilities as another. Explain to them that teasing hurts... and that they go to school to LEARN, NOT to compete. EDUCATION BEGINS AT HOME.. and so does bullying!

Also, remind them that a simple smile can make someone’s day brighter…it may be the only smile they get all day! ❤️

Did you know that using hands-on activities is one of the BEST ways for children to learn? Research shows that children who are taught using hands-on teaching methods do better in school than those who are not.
The importance of hands-on learning in early childhood education
• Hands-on activities allow children to use their senses while learning. They see, touch, and move real objects to complete tasks. This means that letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and more are brought to life! Children begin to understand the meaning behind what they are doing.
• Children get excited and engaged because they are having FUN!
• They have a longer attention span. This helps them to build knowledge and increase their long-term memory.
• Children will strengthen their fine motor development. They learn control, communication, concentration and dedication to finishing tasks and problem-solving skills.
• Hands-on toddler, preschool, and kindergarten activities help children to build a lifelong love of learning!
