Keeping Your Child Safe In The Car
The following articles are information on keeping your child safe in your car. If you haven' t had your car seat checked, now is the time to ensure your precious bundles are secured safely. The following link will direct you to a website where you can enter your zip code to find the closest and most convenient place for an inspection. Keep your child safe by making sure you have your car seat installed properly! http://www.seatcheck.org./
There is no one "safest" child safety seat. Use the one that fits your child, fits in your vehicles correctly, and one that you will use every trip, every time.
Parents As Teachers: Keeping Your Child Safe in the Car
Missouri Extension Information
Playing outdoors requires safety precautions as well - always be aware of where your children are and watch for safety hazards. When you are vigilant about your child's safety, outdoor play can provide physical fitness, enjoyment, stress relief and social interactions as well as a chance to develop new interests!
Week of the Young Child
April 11 - 15, 2016
The Week of the Young Child™ is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families.
The purpose of the Week of the Young Child™ is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.
NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child™ in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children's success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to plan how we—as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation—will better meet the needs of all young children and their families.
Celebrate your child, their teachers, and those that support early education!
The following are ideas for each day to promote your child!
Music Monday! April 11, 2016 Sing, dance, celebrate, and learn
