  • Simplifying Thanksgiving for Your Preschool Child

    These days, the holiday season can be pure information overload, and at no time is this more prevalent than at Thanksgiving. In the midst of fall decorations, pumpkin spice lattes, and anecdotal references to the historical Pilgrims, it is easy to lose sight of where the story of Thanksgiving ends and the holiday marketing schemes begin. Now imagine how your preschooler must feel deciphering this mess!

    With that in mind, here are some helpful tips on how to introduce Thanksgiving to your child if you’re desiring to make it about more than food.

    Start with the story

    The original story of Thanksgiving is actually pretty straightforward and telling it will go a long way towards explaining the holiday. Ultimately, you know your kid, if their curiosity is rarely satisfied, then dish out the details. Here is a link to an accurate, historical account:

    http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/history/first-thanksgiving/

    Simply put, Thanksgiving is just a story of a good man taking care of others who needed help. Turn story time into an opportunity to teach your preschooler the importance of goodwill and kindness.

    Focus on your family

    Once your preschooler understands why they don’t have to go to school, then discuss the idea of THANKSgiving. Show how thankful you are for them, for the food on the table, and for the space to just spend time together. Whether or not they get all the big concepts, they will remember the quality time together. Memories are the sweetest part of the holidays and will last whether or not you burn the turkey!

    Make traditions of your own

    In the end, Thanksgiving is different for everyone. What your preschooler will remember are the things you all do together as a family. If your typical Thanksgiving is a big meal with family, do that! If it means a picnic or a breakfast in bed, do that! If you have always gotten up early to watch the Rockettes high kick in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, your child will love it because you do, and it will become a holiday tradition for you all.

  • Autumn Crafts with Preschoolers

    When temperatures start to cool and leaf shades darken to crimson and brown, you find that conversations with your preschooler turn to hayrides and Halloween costumes, fall festivals and county fairs. You do not have to go anywhere, though, to enjoy autumn-inspired fun with your little one. Take advantage of your next rainy afternoon at home and break out paint and glue for a fall-themed craft. Whatever the activity, you and your preschooler will have fun making memories together!

    Autumn and harvest

    Autumn, or “fall,” as it is called in the United States, marks one of the four temperate seasons observed annually. This season was often referred to as the harvest season prior to the 16th century, when agricultural rhythms played a larger role in communities. Today, autumn marks the return to the school year and the start to the football season as well as a time for favorite holiday celebrations, such as Halloween and Thanksgiving.

    Simple Crafts with Preschoolers

    Take advantage of all the yellow and gold leaves piling up in your backyard by using them for leaf-inspired seasonal crafts:

    Leaf Necklace

    With a strip of ribbon or sturdy string, you and your preschooler can create a one-of-kind necklace. You might want to add a few orange, red, or brown beads between the leaves as well.

    Leaf Painting

    Create original artwork by painting one side of a leaf with watercolors, and then press the painted side down on a piece of craft paper. Your little one will love the vibrant colors and impressions that emerge. Share the fun by tucking a few into letters to a favorite aunt or the grandparents.

    Leaf Creatures

    Gather glue, pipe cleaners, and whatever else you have on hand—googly eyes, gold star stickers, construction paper—and make small people or creatures out of the fall leaves you have gathered!

    This 'Sesame Street' episode can help you talk to your kids about Harvey

    Hurricane Harvey & Helping Your Child Cope With Natural Disasters

    On August 25th, Hurricane Harvey made landfall along the Texas coast, bringing powerful winds and heavy rainfall with it. After days of non-stop rain, Houston and many other regions were left in shambles, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to walk away from what was once their home. While this devastation undoubtedly affects many people’s jobs, daily routines, and mental health, it is important to remember that children are affected as well.

    It can be difficult for young children to grasp natural disasters and why and how they occur. Children cope with events such as this differently depending on their age, but they are all susceptible to its negative impact. Whether your child was directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey or not, these tips for coping with natural disasters are sure to help your family move forward no matter what you face in the future.

    Talk About It

    One of the best ways to help your child process what has happened is by discussing the events that have occurred. Explain the disaster in logical terms so your child can fully understand why or how things have changed. Most importantly, allow your child to express his or her emotions about what has taken place, and listen to their worries or fears. By creating a safe space for your child to share their feelings, they will be less likely to bottle up or hold onto any negative emotions. A wonderful resource on how to discuss natural disasters with children can be found in this Sesame Street episode, where Big Bird’s friends help him rebuild his nest after a storm.

    Maintain A Routine

    Your child can hold onto a sense of normalcy by maintaining their typical routine in whatever way possible. Try to stick with their normal bed/wake up time in order to ensure they’re getting enough sleep. Allow them time to learn and play, and stick with any rules you would enforce on a daily basis. Many parents feel the need to coddle children in the midst of a disaster, but sticking to a routine can provide a sense of safety and security.

    Be Patient

    Remember – each child processes natural disasters differently. While one child may appear totally unaffected, another could display symptoms of anxiety or even depression. Be patient as your little one copes with how their life has changed, and know that it could take weeks, months, or even years for them to fully recover. Love, comfort, and patience go a long way when helping your child move past a difficult time.

    Would you like to help Kids ‘R’ Kids employees who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey? Simply visit our  GoFundMe link and make a donation. It is our hope to raise $100,000 or more for all staff members and teachers whose homes, families, and livelihood have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

    Your preschooler may be noticing that the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn orange and yellow, or that the days have been turning cooler and cooler. These changes in the weather, and your little one’s observations or questions about them, provide a rich opportunity for you to talk with your preschooler about the seasons and to enjoy the changing weather together!

    Seasons in the United States

    Four temperate seasons are recognized in the United States, including winter, spring, summer, and fall. These seasons have unique weather and temperature ranges, as well as distinctive daylight qualities, that help to distinguish one season from another. For example, in the fall season, which begins with the September equinox between September 21 and 24 each year, temperatures decline, daylight shortens, and many areas receive more rain than during the summer months.

    Strategies for exploring the seasons

    Fun ways to explore the changes in the seasons with your preschooler include:

    Taking a walk--Track the observable seasonal changes in your neighborhood, such as brightly colored leaves on the trees or cooler daytime temperatures. You may compare together how different the neighborhood looks during the fall than during other seasons, such as in winter when the trees are bare or in spring when the flowers are in bloom. Then gather up a few leaves to take home for a seasonal craft you can complete together!

    Visiting the library-- Discover a few picture books about the seasons among the stacks at your local library, and take turns talking through the illustrations. You might find books that illustrate the brightly colored leaves or cold rainy days of the fall, or perhaps one that allows you to see the changes of the seasons throughout the year. Your little one will have many questions and observations to share as you read these books together!

    August is Family Fun Month and the perfect time to enjoy the last few weeks of summer before your child heads off to preschool! From days at the zoo, to swimming at the beach - we’ve got you covered when it comes to last-minute summer fun. Here are some exciting activities to make the most out of this great month.

    Go to the zoo

    The zoo is a great opportunity for your family to spend time together while also introducing a whole new world of animals to your little ones. Enjoy lions, and tigers, and bears (oh my!) and ask your child what his favorite animal is on the way home—it’ll be a day he never forgets.

    Fun in the sun

    Once school starts, most local pools close, so take advantage of the summer while you still can! Another alternative to stay cool with the heat of summer is going to the beach- pack your sunblock and beach towels and spend a day teaching your little ones how to swim or make sandcastles. Poolside or on the beach is a great opportunity to grill out and fly a kite or play some ball.

    Summer indoor fun

    Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean your family can’t have fun indoors as well. On days when it’s just too hot, get creative indoors with living room camping. Make a pillow fort inside and watch movies with popcorn. You can even build a tent in the backyard and spend the night under the stars. Make s’mores and tell funny stories, and your kids will forget they’re in their own backyard.

    With all this free time on your hands with your preschooler out of school for the summer, you may be a loss for how to spend your time. Arts and crafts are a great, affordable way to both have fun and spark the artistic, creative side of your child.

    Tie Dye Shirts

    An oldie, but a goodie: making tie dye shirts is a unique craft because it creates something you can use over and over again. How often can your child say that they can wear their art?

    Make a family tree

    This project is a fun way to acquaint your child with your family history, and there’s so many ways to do so! Draw a tree and make leaves for each family member, or make it a finger painting project where thumb prints of different colors represent the leaves.

    Sock puppets

    Never underestimate the power of a little imagination and some googly eyes. Have your child decorate their own sock puppet with yarn, eyes, or anything else they want, and then put on a puppet show.

    Colorful sand necklaces

    You can get plastic bottle necklaces that come in different shapes along with various colors of sand at the dollar or craft store. Put down some newspaper first or go outside and fill the necklaces with as many colors as your little ones can fit—along with their tie-dye shirts, your kids will be the craftiest and most colorful kids on the block!

    When it’s too hot for your preschooler to play outside, you are going to need fun activities to keep them entertained while they cool off inside. From nerf gun wars to movie marathons, we’ve got you covered! Check them out - and make sure they don’t wreck the house when trying out these fun summertime activities!

    Nerf gun war with your preschooler.

    Nerf guns are a blast for all ages, so ramp up your typical hide-and-go-seek game with this element of fun. Select a target base and send everyone to hide with their Nerf guns in tow. Whoever can make it back to base without being hit with a Nerf bullet is the winner!

    Build an indoor fort with your preschooler.

    Pull out all the blankets and build an indoor fort with your little one. If you want to get fancy, you can build multiple rooms into the fort, and fill up the whole living room with your blanket castle. Tuck blankets into the couch cushions and drape them across a bar stool to complete your fortress. When it’s finished, grab a book and a flashlight and head into the fort for a fun time.

    Get cooking!

    Have your little ones help you prepare dinner. They’ll love getting to set the table, mix ingredients, and dish up your masterpiece. Or, consider baking cookies and cupcakes to turn your day from sour to sweet! All you need is cookie dough, icing, cookie cutters and sprinkles to have a blast and bake those indoor blues away.

    Preschoolers love movies and books.

    Movie day is a big hit with children, and it can keep them occupied for hours at a time. Sing! is a new movie that recently came out on Blu-ray and DVD that children love to watch over and over. The modern-day animated musical is a fun film for all ages. Swap screen time for reading time, and head outside for a few minutes to read a book in the shade to catch some fresh air.

    These ideas will add a lot of variety to your preschooler’s day and will give them a chance to learn and play. Cherish these sweet moments that you have this summer with your little one. School will be starting back up before you know it!

    April shower bring May flowers, and spring is here! Spring is an awesome time to teach your preschooler all about the new life that is blooming all around them in nature. Here are some fun ideas to consider while you’re picking the wildflowers together.

    Visit an arboretum with your preschooler.

    If you have a local arboretum, take the opportunity to take your little one to see all the botany in season! Take lots of pictures, and buy your preschooler a little disposable camera so they can take pictures of all their favorite flowers that they spot along the trip. It will be so much fun to get them developed to enjoy later so that you can both remember the fun times and the beautiful scenery that you saw together.

    Take preschool pictures in the wildflowers.

    Pictures are an art that captures a moment for a lifetime. Designate a spring day to take portraits of your little one in the wildflowers. You don’t have to hire a professional photographer—just snap some pictures on your phone and have them printed at your local photo center. Hang them on the fridge so that you can all remember the springtime flowers and the wonderful times that you had in nature.

    Help your preschooler find signs of new life in nature.

    Make a list of all the possible signs of new life that you find on a nature walk, like baby birds, budding flowers, butterflies, and ladybugs. Then go for a walk through nature and help your preschooler spot all the things on your list while adding anything else you find! When you get back home your little one can draw a picture of their favorite thing that they saw along the way.

    If those April showers have finally let up and you’ve got a few hyper preschool children on your hands, head outside and take in the sunshine. Family hikes, picnics at the park, and pool days are sure to keep your kiddos entertained, but remember to stay healthy and protected with these outdoor safety tips.

    Be careful with plants.

    If you’re camping or going for a nature walk, be cautious of new plants/berries. Preschool children are often curious about nature and may come in to contact with questionable (or even poisonous) plants. If your child is having a skin reaction, call your local poison control center to learn about other symptoms and potential causes.

    Wear insect repellant.

    As temperatures rise, you may see an increase in beetles, cicadas, dragonflies and bees—not to mention the many mosquitos and ants that follow those frequent seasonal rainstorms. Keep your preschooler protected anytime you’re outside by applying insect repellent to clothing and exposed skin.

    Wear helmets and pads.

    Sunny days are perfect for bike rides and rollerblading, but remember—safety first! Have your little ones put on knee/elbow pads and helmets before heading off on their set of wheels. Don’t forget to double check that your children’s helmets are secured properly—a loose fit equals less protection.

    Drink lots of water!

    Hydration is key to beating the heat. Adults are recommended to drink sixty four ounces of water per day, but your preschooler doesn’t need this much. The amount of water your child should drink each day varies depending on height, weight, and age, but ensure your kiddo is getting roughly five glasses of water a day and they’ll be good to go.

    So, break out the slip & slide, apply some sunscreen and soak up the sun while keeping these outdoor safety tips in mind. You can bet your preschool children will stay happy, healthy, and safe this season while having the time of their lives.

    Teaching your preschool children the value of hard work and dedication is extremely important, and one way you can do this is by encouraging them to help you clean around the house. Whether you create a chore chart together or use rewards as incentives, there are many ways to get your children involved no matter how reluctant they initially may be.

    Make chores fun.

    Turn cleaning into a game by seeing who can make their bed the fastest, or turn on some music and, as a family, get as much done as possible in one room before the song ends. Here’s another fun idea: have your kids guess how many items are in a drawer or cabinet before taking them out to dust them off and reorganize them.

    Have a yard sale.

    This is a wonderful opportunity to clean out clutter in your home and teach your children a thing or two about the process of buying/selling items. You will feel great knowing that your once-beloved items will continue to be valued in someone else’s home and your children will enjoy being a part of all the action.

    Keep it simple.

    By assigning specific, small tasks, your child can successfully and efficiently tackle one thing at a time. Instead of something vague such as “clean up your room,” try one of these clearer suggestions:

    • Make your bed
    • Put your toys in the toy bin
    • Bring your dirty clothes to the laundry room

    Have a fashion show!

    Make your spring-cleaning session a little more exciting with a family fashion show! Begin by sorting through your closets with your kids, separating the clothes that still fit from those that don’t. Turn on some tunes and you’ll transform your hallway into a fashion-filled runway. When everything has been sorted through, don’t throw away what no longer fits—take any old clothing to your local Salvation Army or thrift store.

    Deep cleaning can be a daunting task, especially when trying to incorporate your preschool children. However, these ideas will leave your home fresh, organized and free of stress for spring.

  • Celebrating Friendships in Preschool

    Preschool is going to be one of the very first places that your child begins to make friends. While encouraging them to get along with everyone, it’s important to understand why our children need friends, and what we can do to help them make lasting relationships with other children their age.

    Making friends might be harder than it sounds since it actually requires some skill and understanding! First your child has to learn empathy. They will learn this as they make friends and interact with their family. It is important for a child to be able to feel what others feel, and understand or respond appropriately. Empathy is one of the most important traits in any relationship or job, so starting younger is better! Help your child to understand that everyone has emotions and feelings.

    Kindness is another important trait that is necessary to a relationship. Teach your child that we should treat each other well, regardless of the mood or circumstances that you are experiencing. It takes maturity and strength to be able to overcome your own bad day in order to extend kindness to others who are also feeling down.

    In all friendships, it is necessary to have an understanding heart. You can teach your child practical ways to show their love to a friend. Things like scheduling play dates with other children and teaching the importance of sharing can go a long way. Ask your child about their friends so that you can see what areas you can help them with.

    Celebrating friendships in preschool is a great way to encourage your child to learn to put themselves aside, and consider the well-being of another child. This is the beginning of learning how to interact with other people and to encourage their socialization with other children. Great friendships start here!

    When it’s cold outside, one of the most comforting things is a warm, home-cooked meal that you can all enjoy together. Here are some great food ideas that you and your little one can try out this winter.

    Crockpot meals. These are the easiest because all you have to do is throw the ingredients into the pot and let it warm up the house all day! You can try Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup. This recipe requires no chopping! Just dump the ingredients into the pot, and let it cook! Try this Slow Cooker Jambalaya if you’re looking for something with a little bit of spice and minimal preparation, and this crockpot lasagna is sure to be a hit! There are an endless number of crockpot recipes online. Just search for what you’re craving, and toss it in the pot!

    Quick breads. These are bread recipes that don’t require yeast or kneading. This Banana bread recipe is great for breakfasts and snacks and is sure to be loved by everyone! Or try this pumpkin bread recipe if you’re wanting something more festive. You can choose to make these into muffins instead of bread, and cut the baking time in half! These are two popular favorites, and they’re delicious comfort foods. You can let your little ones stir the batter as you add in the ingredients. You can’t go wrong with these!

    These are all great recipes to try out when it’s too cold to go outside, or when you just don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen. You can even freeze all of these for another day and just take them out of the freezer and warm them up whenever you’re ready! This makes life easily delicious.

    Cooking is scary if you’re a preschooler. Heck, cooking is scary for some adults! The heat, the ingredients, breading the chicken—how some people enjoy it is a mystery for other people.

    But it doesn’t have to be scary with certain foods, like marshmallows or pretzels. Children can be introduced to the kitchen in a variety of ways, but one way is to make simple holiday snacks with them.

    This way, they get to learn about how different foods work together, about heat, and how fun it can be to move around the kitchen! Trying some of these snacks this holiday season could be a fun way to rid yourselves of cabin fever.

    Marshmallow Snowmen

    The blog It’s Always Autumn has created a fun treat—marshmallow snowmen!

    All you need is marshmallows (of course), pretzel sticks, toothpicks, chocolate chips, and candy corn.

    Simply stick three marshmallows on top of one another for the body, connected with toothpicks. Then put the pretzel sticks into its body for the arms and legs. Place three chocolate chips on its belly for the buttons. Finally, put the candy corn in place for the nose, and there you have it!

    Melted Snowmen Chocolate Bark

    Princess Pinky Girl made a fun creation featuring melted snowmen. All you need—for a simple version—is white chocolate, pretzel sticks, candies for the buttons, orange sprinkles for the noses, and googly eyes.

    Melt the white chocolate to make the bark. This serves as the “puddle” of snow. Then, place three candies for the buttons in a line in the middle of where you want your snowman to be. Then place an orange sprinkle right above them for the nose. Pretzel sticks go on either side of the buttons for the arms. Finally, put down the eyes where you think they should go, and voila!

    Candy Cane Hearts

    This is an easy one. Oh Nuts created this fun snack with just chocolate and candy canes!

    Simply put two candy canes facing each other so they make a heart onto some baking pan. Then pour melted chocolate in the middle to make a filling. Crush up another candy cane in the middle for decoration, and there you have it!

    These snacks can be super easy to make, especially for children. It will teach them about putting certain foods together, using kitchen instruments, and adding a little heat! It’s the perfect combo for a holiday cooking party.

    Before the weather gets unbearably hot (as we know it will in the TX summer) get outside with your toddler or preschooler and go on a fun family picnic! While the idea of having small children in wide open spaces may sound too exhausting, you can eliminate some of the stress with good planning. Anytime you leave the house with your kiddos, a great rule of thumb is to keep the outing as simple as possible. Cramming too many activities into one afternoon can lead to grumpy children and an exhausted mom.

    1. Location, Location, Location – When deciding where to picnic start by doing it at a familiar place. You could even start in your own backyard or at a friend’s house. Being familiar with your surroundings will give you peace of mind to be able to enjoy yourself. Once your kids are older or whenever you are more comfortable, venture out to a local park or zoo for your picnic festivities.

    2. Bring a Friend – Children almost always do better when they have friends to play with. Even introverted children appreciate the company of another child to play with outside. Being outside is the perfect place to spark imagination so having a friend explore with your child makes it even more fun! Plus, having another adult to watch the kiddos means you will have a chance to talk to a grown-up and have another set of eyes looking out for your child as you look after theirs.

    An Easter Egg Hunt can be a fun event for the whole family, but did you know it can also be an educational opportunity for your child? Here are six creative ways your child can learn through an egg hunt:

    1.Toddlers Can Learn Colors

    Before letting your toddler loose to find as many plastic eggs as possible, tell your toddler only to collect a specific color or colors of eggs. This will help your toddler distinguish between different colors and make the game more challenging!

    2.Toddlers Can Learn Shapes

    If you’re creating your own egg hunt, fill plastic eggs with different shaped objects. After the eggs are all found, reward your child for naming each of the shapes found in his or her eggs.

    3.Preschoolers Can Learn Numbers

    If you’re creating your own egg hunt, use a permanent marker to number the plastic eggs before hiding them. Challenge your children to find the eggs in order from 1 to 20, or 1 to 100 if you’re that ambitious!

    Is your child’s back talking becoming a problem? Are you tired of hearing “No! You do it!” from your toddler or preschooler? There may be something you can do to help curb those annoying, whiny, temper tantrums.

    Instead of responding by saying “You’ll do it because I said so” or “Don’t ever talk to me like that!” there are other ways to help your child learn to disagree with you respectfully. The best way to stop back talk is to provide your child with some independence – but within your own limits. Kids of all ages need a sense of personal power to make their own choices and express their differences in opinions with parents. When parents make all the decisions for them, children naturally want to lash out, and so they do — with words and sometimes, physical aggression.

    So how can parents teach their children to disagree respectfully? Read the full article here: How to Stop Back Talking Without "Because I Said So"

    Toddlerhood is often characterized by swift development within the brain. It is during this period of your child’s life that the brain will form an immensely complex network of connections through synaptogenesis and pruning. In this blog the child care and preschool professionals at Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Sugar Land, Texas will shed some light on how this development takes place in your toddler.

    The first thing to understand about brain development in toddlers is that it is driven by both biological factors as well as the experiences your child goes through in life. The brain will produce billions of synapses that it will never use in a process that is often referred to as synaptic overproduction. This trend will continue throughout the early stages of your child’s life.

    Pruning refers to the process that ultimately shapes the brain of your child. As mentioned earlier, synaptic overproduction will cause your child’s brain to have far too many synapses than he or she will be able to use. Pruning essentially prunes the connections that have not been utilized. This is often based on your child’s experiences and learning since birth.

    This trend will usually continue into adolescence at which time the process slows down because most of the pruning was completed much earlier. It therefore makes sense for parents to encourage as much learning as possible in the early years of the child’s life, because this is when experiences may have a more profound effect on the brain’s development.

    Infant care tends to demand a lot from parents in terms of physical as well as emotional care. There are several different types of physical care that parents need to provide for their infant. Here are some of the most important ones:

    Food

    Providing an infant with food is, of course, one of the most basic priorities for parents. This means finding the right balance of nutrients and vitamins to ensure healthy development. Your infant will require either breastmilk or iron-fortified baby formula for the first few months of his or her life before moving onto semi-solid and solid foods at around the age of six months. Consult with your physician to make sure that your child is receiving a healthy, balanced diet. Your physician will help you determine the right time to begin to supplement breast milk or formula with other foods.

    Physical affection

    Studies conducted by infant care professionals have revealed that physical acts of affection toward your infant greatly improve things such as brain development. Make sure to spend quality time with your child with plenty of physical interaction. This could include sharing a bath together, rocking your child before nap or bedtime, or exploring infant massage.

    Clothing

    It is not enough to just provide your baby with something to wear. You also need to ensure that your child is warm and comfortable. Many parents may dress their infants in trendy clothes without considering how comfortable the infant might be. It is better to stay with simple, conventional clothing, such as baby jumpers and booties instead of jackets, jeans, and sneakers.

    Finding a suitable child care center can be difficult. Not only do you want the best possible education for your preschooler, you want highly qualified staff that are prepared to deal with any event and you want a safe and secure facility. Here are some factors to consider when searching for a child care center:

    Credentials

    It is important to understand what credentials a day care provider has. These can be related to the quality of the staff, the educational program, the food, or the safety and security of the facility. You can ask each provider for details of the various aspects of their facility and programs. You can also contact other parents who have had experience with a particular center. Other parents can provide invaluable information on what a center offers and how effective that center is in meeting a parent’s expectations. Be sure that the facility you choose has the proper credentials in the areas that are important to you.

    Emergency Planning

    If you are going to leave your child in a day care center, you want to know about emergency planning including medical care, natural disasters, etc. Ask questions such as whether the center has contingency plans, is the staff qualified to handle emergencies and what are the protocols for connecting with parents and emergency and medical professionals?

    Curriculum

    Ask the prospective child care center about the curriculum. Is the curriculum age appropriate, does it include include time for learning, physical activity, and rest? What focus does the curriculum have? For example, is the focus on day care or on academics? Ask the center how they implement these strategies in order to facilitate healthy brain development in preschoolers.

    Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of North Sugar Land, Texas offers specialized programs that focus on brain development and foundational academics. Visit or contact us today to find out about our comprehensive curricula and stringent child care techniques.

  • Infant care in Sugar Land: How does breastfeeding impact your child’s development?

    Breastfeeding your baby is one of the most discussed child care topics. Numerous studies have shown that breastfed babies are more likely to outperform formula fed peers in various tests involving math, reading and writing. Here are some of the positive impacts that breastfeeding can have on your infant and his or her health and development.

    Protect your child from a number of illnesses

    Research has shown that breastfed babies are less likely to fall ill with ear infections, stomach viruses, meningitis and a number of other ailments associated with young children and infants. This is largely due to a substance called immunoglobulin which is found in breast milk. This substance forms a protective layer on the mucus membranes within your baby’s body, protecting him or her from dangerous germs and bacteria.

    Breastfeeding aids cognitive development

    By breastfeeding your infant child, you are providing him or her with optimal cognitive development. The fatty acids found in breast milk help your baby’s body build myelin. This is the insulated covering around nerves that allows messages to and from the brain to travel faster.

    Protect your infant from developing allergies

    Researchers have discovered that substances found solely in breast milk such as secretory lgA can help prevent allergies in your infant. Secretory lgA helps form a protective layer along the walls of the intestines. If this protective layer is missing, undigested proteins can pass through the walls of the intestines and cause problems and allergies in the future.

    Protect your infant from obesity

    Breastfeeding reduces a child's risk of becoming overweight and the longer a baby is exclusively breastfed, the more benefit is realized. A few reasons for this are that breastfed babies eat only until their hunger is satisfied and that breast milk contains less insulin and more leptin than formula. Leptin is a hormone that helps regulate appetite and fat.
