Also, if you are in need of gifts, please let us know. I can't promise anything as COVID has taken a toll on helping the community but in case a program calls, I would like to be ready.

The importance of routines

Some adults rely on routines to get thru the day, yet others, feel it it boring and dull. However, routines for children can make a difference between having a great school year or a difficult school year. Routines for children help with greater self control, increased confidence and independence, stress reduction and expose to healthy habits. Please read the article below on why routines are important for children.
