Happy New Year!
As the year ends, we reflect on all 2020 has taught us, such as community, flexibility, creativity, and empathy. It's no surprise these are the same skills we teach daily in our Skip-a-Long centers. Growth is an ongoing process that continues to build on the same concepts year after year, starting at birth and continuing through adulthood.

As we welcome 2021, we will continue to use these skills and experiences to create the best version of ourselves. We can look forward to a new year with new experiences and what lessons they may bring. As with the children in our centers, we are always learning and growing.

We wish you and your family a healthy and prosperous year full of wonderful experiences!
Health and Wellness: Nutrition
Make sure you and your child receive all the nutrients needed to be healthy and successful! Making informed food choices sets your family up for success by incorporating healthier foods.

ChooseMyPlate.gov has tons of great food and nutrition resources for families with young children. From family-friendly recipes and activities to information about local foods and healthy eating on a budget, everyone can learn something new!

Don't forget to get children involved in meal time! The more they are included, given choices, and allowed to help in the kitchen, the more likely they are to make healthy food choices.
Conscious Discipline: Empathy
Empathy is the ability to understand other people's thoughts, feelings and actions and to see things from the others perspective. In Conscious Discipline the skill of empathy is the ability to accept what is and each moment as it is. When children are upset we need to act like a mirror, reflecting back their inner state so that the child can regulate themselves enough to change their outer behavior.
