Education & Fun for Kids 

Spring break is over and it has been one week since schools reopened. While parents may look forward to go back to their routines, chances are your kids aren’t that excited about heading back to school after some time off. We’ve put together a few tips on how you can help them look forward to resuming their studies.


There are so many events, workshops and activities centered on your child's education that are coming up. We've highlighted them for you in this newsletter too! 


This month also marks Earth Day - an opportunity to teach children the importance of keeping our planet clean and learning how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. With a little guidance and supervision, kids can get creative helping and celebrating the earth. After all, little steps can lead to big changes.

Back to School Blues? 

Kids everywhere are feeling the back-to-school blues right about now.
A parent can only hope that heading back to school after two weeks of spring fun could be effortless. But many kids think school gates reopening simply means the end of fun, freedom and free time. 
But going back to class doesn't have to be a drag. Help your kids beat the back-to-school blues with these tips. Let's get them back into the groove of homeworks, school buses, back packs, books and teachers with a genuine smile on their faces! 


There is Fun in Reading! 

Reading is a lifelong hobby that can help build the imagination, vocabulary and education of your child. Studies show that children exposed to books early on tend to become better learners and earlier speakers. But reading can also be your time of bonding, and the building of your child's IQ and the language boost your child gets is a bonus. The act of reading itself is a chance to slow down and spend time together. It's that connection that is behind instilling a lifetime love of reading in children. 


But how can you create a home environment and a daily routine that will beckon your child into the wonderful world of literature? Explore our Pinterest board for ideas!
