Promoting a Successful Child “School readiness means each child enters school ready to engage in and benefit from early learning experiences that best promote the child’s success.” Is there anything in this world that you want more than to see your child succeed in life? School readiness focuses on three core groups: 1) Health and Physical Well-Being, 2) Emotional and Social Preparation, and 3) Language, Math and General Knowledge. Indicators have been established for each group that allows the parent, family, friends, daycare, school, and community to aid in the success of our children. Health and Physical Well-Being Another important quote from this campaign, “These indicators represent the hopes and aspirations for incoming students, not the expectations.” Hopes and aspirations, those words alone bring ideas to life. What can we do today that will aid our child’s future? The points under each group are targets to set for the child, guidelines to work toward, and goals to achieve. For instance under Health and Physical Well-Being is the point “eats a balanced diet”. Are you doing the best you can to ensure your child is eating healthy? Does your child live off fast food and snacks all day or do you prepare daily home cooked meals that include all the essential foods required for a child’s healthy balanced diet? Emotional and Social Preparation Under the Emotional and Social Preparation group we have the point “is curious and motivated to learn”. A child’s brain thirsts for learning much like a sponge. They
Preschool or Daycare, Knowing What to Ask The dilemma’s facing parents have changed over the years and nothing made that clearer to me than the events over the past week. Many conversations have taken place and Kidz World listened! We listened to what parents want and need to know in regard to early education and care for their children. Parents need to know that their children are safe and receiving the best education possible to prepare them for the trials and tribulations of this world. Parents want the best for those precious children… but sometimes, figuring out what that best is can be truly confusing. What do parent’s need to ask when seeking childcare? Hopefully, this information will leave you with the confidence and skillset you need to locate what is best for your child, your family. What is the difference between daycare and preschool? Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines preschool as: “of, relating to, or constituting the period in a child's life that ordinarily precedes attendance at elementary school”. They define daycare as: “supervision of and care for children or physically or mentally disabled adults that is provided during the day by a person or organization”. Wikipedia defines preschool as: “an educational establishment or learning space offering early childhood education to children, usually between the ages of three and five, prior to the commencement of compulsory education at primary school. They may be privately operated or government run, and one option is to subsidize the costs.” They define daycare as: “the
Pinnacle Curriculum – Interview Elizabeth Anne Cabell “A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.” ~ Brad Henry When I read that quote, I couldn’t help but to wonder just how many children Mrs. Elizabeth Anne Cabell has inspired during her 38-year teaching career. To do anything for 38 years is an incredible feat, but a career in teaching over 38 years what must to equate to thousands of students… well, that’s just simply amazing and an act of selfless devotion and love. Ms. Anne surely found her dream job so many years ago and it truly shows in the passion she has for her job as Curriculum Specialist at Kidz World Childcare, Inc. I had the great privilege, to speak with Ms. Anne about the Faith-Based Pinnacle Curriculum taught at Kidz World. I can’t put into words the depth of love and respect for Ms. Anne by the staff, children, and parents of Kidz World. She is a true inspiration to us all. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did. And, if you know Ms. Anne, or you see her out and about town doing one of her many church or community related events… give her one of those smiles that you hold dear to your heart for those people that are truly worth admiring. God bless Ms. Anne and all those wonderful teacher’s just like her that touch the lives of the children of the world and

New Safety Concerns

Posted by admin on  July 10, 2017

New Safety Concerns How many times have you charged your phone off a torn or frayed charger cord? How many times has your child? These days we have all new safety concerns. Thirty years ago, parents never imagined having to worry about a child’s safety while charging a phone. The phone was connected to the wall and we stretched that cord as far as it could go, then would spend many hours unwinding that curly stretched cord as we sat in the floor below the phone. The biggest threat was the cutting off of circulation as you wrapped the cord around and around your finger. Today, however, as you can see from the image above, the safety is very real. This child’s bed could have gone up in flames! Children these days plug in not only cellphones, but tablets, laptops, and games leaving them close to them as they sleep. As a general rule… there should be nothing plugged in and laying on the bed, couch, chair or any such furniture that is easily ignitable. Secure your home What other relatively new safety concerns are lurking out there? How about those nice big flat screen TV’s? Years ago, it took a whole team of movers to pick up one of those old clunky TV’s and move it across the room. Nowadays, however, those high-tech wonders can tip right over on your child. A child has been seen in ER’s around the world every 45 minutes due to TV’s and furniture
Independence Day, July 4, 2017 Independence Day is the national holiday of the United States of America commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” –Thomas Jefferson In June 1776, the Continental Congresses efforts had become hopeless and a committee was formed to compose a formal declaration of independence separating the 13 colonies from England. Headed by Thomas Jefferson, the committee included John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Robert R. Livingston and Roger Sherman. Thomas Jefferson was chosen to write the first draft which was presented to the congress on June 28. After various changes, a vote was taken late in the afternoon of July 4th. Of the 13 colonies, 9 voted in favor of the Declaration, 2 – Pennsylvania and South Carolina voted No, Delaware undecided and New York abstained. The document was signed into act by John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress. The pursuit of happiness, as mentioned by Thomas Jefferson, can often lead us on an unending journey causing us to turn right, then left, and even sometimes go in circles searching for that elusive happiness. Throughout history, it has been proven, time and time again, that you cannot make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time. Look at the
