Little Bodies Need to Move! Even When You’re Stuck Inside

Being stuck inside more during the cold winter … really this whole pandemic … you might be seeing more unpleasant behaviors from your little one.  Little bodies need to move.  It’s more than just a need to release all of that energy (which is a huge factor on its own), but their gross motor development is blossoming and needing to shine.  They also have a need for gross motor sensory input during this stage.  In other words, their bodies are telling them “go, go, go!!” and if they don’t have those needs met, you are more likely to see less than optimal behaviors more frequently.

Kindergarten Ready

While attending my son’s first kindergarten conference the first thing his teachers asked was where did he go to preschool and who was his teachers. I told them Kidz Ink Songsmith and his teachers were Ms. Debbie and Ms. Ashley. His kindergarten teachers said they need more teachers like he had because he came to kindergarten prepared and ready! Thank you Ms. Debbie and Ms. Ashley for being great teachers who are determined to do all that you can to prepare each child for their next chapter in kindergarten. With the help of you ladies my son was able to ease right into kindergarten. Thanks for all you do!
