Research tells us it is never too early to start reading to children. From the day they are born, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers begin to develop necessary language and literacy skills. By the time they enter kindergarten, they will need between 10,000 and 12,000 words in their vocabulary. Reading is one of the best ways to develop these critical skills. Each week, team members of New Horizon Academy will be reading their favorite story and sharing reading tips with your family. Enjoy!
Children need a relied upon routine to establish normalcy. A consistent schedule helps children understand what is coming next and brings comfort and consistency to a child’s life. This has never been more important than during these uncertain and ever-changing times.
While daily routines look different for each family, it is important to create a routine that works for you and your family. As you determine your new routine, remember to remain flexible and practice patience. This is new for you and your child. We have a few practical strategies to assist you as you establish a schedule for your family.
Create a simple family morning ritual that helps you start your day off right, such as enjoying breakfast together or simply talking about what you have planned for the day.
Keep your child busy at home with hands-on activities throughout the day. We have compiled some of our favorite activities by age group for you.
The development of good eating habits is one of the many skills your child will learn as they enjoy meals and snacks both at school and at home. Enjoy your snacks and meals together as a family.

After a busy morning, your child may want the opportunity to rest and take a nap. Non-nappers can participate in quiet-time activities instead during this time.
