    Keeping your preschooler active throughout the summer helps them avoid the dreaded “brain drain” while allowing your child to have a lot of fun! As always, moderation is key when it comes to your child’s schedule. Having time to be a kid is very important but adding some structure and teamwork to your child’s life equips them with important social and emotional skills. Try and choose an activity that you think your preschooler or kindergartener might enjoy and give a new activity at least 6 weeks before giving up – it often takes a few weeks for your child to adjust to a new routine.

    This article is a great resource in talking more about the benefits of extracurricular activities for your preschooler.

    Infancy and toddlerhood are often characterized by several factors including great physical growth, remarkable brain development and cognitive development. The abilities generally associated with cognitive development such as memory, problem-solving, and reasoning all undergo massive development in a relatively short period of time. In this blog we will take a closer look at cognitive development in your child.

    Infancy

    At this early stage, infants are not known for their ability to think critically, however, cognitive development is still happening during this time. In the first twelve months of your child’s life, he or she will begin to understand the basics of cause and effect. For instance when he or she drops a toy on the ground, your child will notice the noise that is made. Later your child will begin to understand that objects still exist even if they are not in view.

    Toddlerhood

    Your child’s cognitive development increases once he or she reaches toddlerhood. By now skills such as problem-solving and concentration are being steadily developed which paves the way for further cognitive development. At two years, your child should be focusing more on thought-filled learning rather than simply manipulating toys and games.

    Capitalizing on early childhood cognitive development

    There are a number of ways parents can make the most of a child’s cognitive development and brain development. Spending quality time with your child and engaging in new learning activities together will help aid in sound cognitive development, also attending a preschool or child care that offers an age-appropriate curriculum will help.

    During the early part of life, your child will go through several critical stages of development. A sound and effective early childhood education at a reputable preschool in a loving, nurturing environment can have a profound effect on your child’s development. Here are some of the benefits of a solid early childhood education.

    Preparation is key

    An early childhood education at a reputable preschool will help prepare your child for the rigors of kindergarten and elementary school. The skills learned during preschool will make the transition into higher levels of education much easier. These skills include being able to work with a schedule, completing tasks within a given timeframe, and learning to work in groups, as well as being able to understand and interpret different commands from teachers.

    Enhancing mental faculties in early development

    A high quality, age-appropriate preschool program significantly impacts the cognitive development of your child. These programs are specifically designed to encourage and reinforce cognitive skills development. This is generally done through the use of a developmental continuum, which is a program that develops current skills and builds up to more advanced skills and knowledge.

    Social skills optimization

    Placing your child in a positive learning environment and ensuring that he or she attends the same preschool for an extended period of time allows for solid relationships to thrive with both peers and caregivers. This provides a sense of security. A child who is happy and comfortable working with a group is more likely to excel at whatever he or she is doing.

    arlington_tx_child_care

    Learning language is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life. The ability to communicate effectively allows a child to make connections with others, as well as understand experiences. For parents who wish to foster language development in their infant, we offer these ideas:

    Chat with your infant

    Start chatting with your infant to begin familiarizing your child with language. Narrate the day’s happenings to your infant while changing a diaper. This can be done with every activity throughout the day. You can talk to your infant while you are in the car, or play a tape so your baby can continue to hear language while you drive.

    Read to your infant

    Read to your infant often. This is one of the best ways to introduce language to babies. The sound of your voice will soothe your infant, and will introduce new words and language patterns. Reading to your infant can also foster an interest in reading by your baby as he or she grows up.

    Use familiar words and gestures to expand meaning

    Most infant care specialists say you should expand upon a few words that your infant is familiar with. If your baby begins to say mama or dada, expand on these words by using them in a sentence. Also, use gestures in order to convey meaning. You can refer to a toy by holding it in front of your baby it while saying the name if the toy. In this way, your infant begins to relate words to things.

    With advancements in technology revolutionizing the way in which a child can learn, it is no surprise that tablets and smart devices have become a part of preschool education. With games and applications made specifically for your preschooler, there is almost a limitless amount of choice for learning. These can be good tools for supplementing your preschool child’s education. Here is a list of some applications that can help your child learn while having a fun experience:

    Reading applications

    There are many reading applications that can help you encourage and develop a love of reading in your preschooler. These applications can also aid your child in learning the alphabet and vocabulary. These skills are foundational and the earlier you expose your child to them, the better. Reading is one of the best ways to teach your child and to encourage self-teaching.

    Writing applications

    Writing is also a very important skill for a child to learn for future school and work life. Again, there are many applications available for your preschooler to learn about writing in a fun and engaging way. All of these applications can be a supplement to what your child learns during the day in preschool.

    Numbers and math applications

    There are many number and math applications that are fun for your young child, which allow him or her to learn to like math and build on those skills. These applications range from basic number and counting skills to slightly more advanced applications. It is important to seek out those that are age appropriate, so as not to overwhelm your preschooler.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Mansfield and South Arlington, we teach your child all of the necessary foundational skills, as well as social, emotional and physical skills in our AdvancED accredited preschool using our exclusive Brain Waves curriculum. We offer your child a high quality, comprehensive preschool education. Contact us today for more information.

  • Arlington child care: how stress affects your infant

    As a new parent, dealing with stress can be a challenge. Balancing the demands of a career, a new infant and a significant change in lifestyle all contribute to stress.

    As a new parent, dealing with stress can be a challenge. Balancing the demands of a career, a new infant and a significant change in lifestyle all contribute to stress. When your child detects your stress, it can easily transfer to him. Research has shown that this can have the following effects on your infant’s development, especially when exposure is long-term:

    • Weak immune system: Prolonged exposure to the stress hormone cortisol can negatively affect your child’s immune system, making your child vulnerable to illness. This can have adverse effects as infants have a very weak immune system to begin with.
    • Imbalanced brain development: At birth, your child has an underdeveloped frontal lobe, the area of the brain that, in adults, rationalizes stress, among other things. Research has shown that long-term stress can cause your child’s brain to prioritize brainstem development over holistic brain development. This can result in anxiety disorders, poor impulse control and poor problem-solving skills.
    • Reduced learning: For your child to learn, he needs to feel safe and loved since infants and children rely on a strong bond of trust with parents and caregivers. Constant stress can harm this bond, making your child feel unsafe and anxious. This is a state that is not conducive to positive learning experiences.

    Child care specialists recommend several methods of handling stress in a healthy balanced way, both while you are expecting and when you welcome home your newborn. These methods include:

    • Having friends and family help with grocery shopping, cooking healthy meals and babysitting. Your friends and family are the best resources for the occasional helping hand, allowing you some breathing room.
    • Prepare: make a list of everything that needs to be done before your infant arrives and ensure that it gets done well in advance. This can include child proofing your home, buying infant equipment, choosing a child care facility, installing a car seat and organizing the nursery.
    • Take care of yourself. A new infant can be overwhelming, so it is important not to forget about you and your partner. Call in a reliable babysitter or family member, even if it is just for a few hours so you can take a break.
    • Meet with other new moms and share your experiences. This is a great way to reduce stress while getting to know new friends. The Plum Mom’s Club offers new moms and infants a way to get out of the house, get some physical activity, socialize and help the community.

    At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Mansfield & S. Arlington, we offer a unique infant child care program for your child from the age of six weeks and up. We have fun, developmentally orientated games and activities that are led by our highly qualified staff. Our program offers your child an exceptional start in life.
